Butt-Dialing Pizza Man's Racist Songs

The Sanford, Fla., Papa John's employee was fired after his n-word-laced remixes were shared on YouTube.


The CEO of Papa John's has apologized to a Sanford, Fla., customer after a deliveryman accidentally dialed the man's voice mail after dropping off an order and left a singing voice mail consisting largely of n-word remixes of The Barber of Seville and Rhythm Heritage's "Theme From SWAT," Mediaite reports. 

The apology came after a customer posted the voice mail message (and a receipt proving that he did, in fact, tip 21 percent) on YouTube. Here's how he describes it:

This was a voicemail left on my phone by a Papa John's Pizza employee. This is highly offensive, derogatory, and ignorant. I am appalled that there were no managers or supervisors (the managers and/ supervisors may even be the ones speaking throughout the recording ... who knows) from stopping this kind of conversation in the work place. Everybody has a right to their opinions, however, there is a time and place to express them. As an African-American in this community and also someone who has always tipped their Delivery Drivers 21%+, I am disgusted entirely by this conversation. Instead of focusing on "better ingredients" and "better pizza", they should prioritize "better integrity" and "better people" on the top of their ‘to-do list'. Inaudible speaking- sounds like two people talking for about a minute and thirty seconds "You back??" "Yea!" "Did he tip you?" "Nope, not at all" "I guess that's the only requirement for being a N***er in Sanford. Yea.. They give me five bucks there-fine outstanding African American gentleman of the community" (Laughs..getting closer) "Well just tip me this f***kin N***er. I'm like singing opera all the way home. I was like. "Ni**aaaa….Ni**a. Ni**a-ro! Ni**a-ro! Niiiiiigggggggaaaaaaa-roooooooooo!" (Laughs again) …"Oh my God…" "I got another N***er song too. It's an old one. It's an instrumental but I put words to it, and its "Ni**a-nig Ni**a-nig Ni**a-nig (laughs again) Ni**a-nig Ni**a-a-N***er! F*ckin F*ckin F*ckin a Nig-a N***er! (Keeps going) Ni**a-nig Ni**a-nig Ni**a-nig (laughs again) Ni**a-nig N***er-a-N***er! F*ckin F*ckin F*ckin a Nig-a N***er! (Keeps going, coworkers laughing) Ni**a-nig Ni**a-nig Ni**a-nig (really laughing now) Ni**a-nig Ni**a-a-N***er! F*ckin F*ckin F*ckin a Nig-a N***er! (Finale) F*ck F*ck F*ck the N***er! He is one real big f*cking N***er. Sometimes you need a two person for that (everyone bursts out in laughter).
