Louisville Zoo to rename Papa John's Splash Park in wake of Schnatter's controversy
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville Zoo will change the name of the Papa John's Splash Park.
The zoo released a statement Thursday saying the splash park will now be named to recognize company founder John Schnatter's wife Annette's personal commitment to the zoo.
However, zoo officials didn't say exactly what the splash park will be called.
The move comes a week after John Schnatter admitted to using a racial slur on a conference call. He later resigned from the University of Louisville board of trustees and as board chairman of Papa John's. Soon after, U of L announced its intentions to remove the Papa John's name from its football stadium, thus calling it Cardinal Stadium.
