Schnatter was criticized for blaming the NFL's handling of national anthem protests for his company's poor sales late a year ago.
Schnatter used the racial slur on the call during a training exercise surrounding the hate groups that have associated themselves with the pizza company following Schnatter's remarks in the NFL national anthem kerfuffle.
Schnatter then went on to describe his early life in IN, a place, he said, where Black people used to be dragged from trucks until they died. The reference apparently was meant to show that he found racism deplorable, but the source told Forbes that multiple people on the call were offended.
After Forbes magazine reported the gaffe, Schnatter said it was true he had used the "inappropriate and hurtful" word. "Regardless of the context, I apologise", the statement said.
The University of Louisville said it doesn't condone racism. but added it doesn't think Schnatter's comments "reflect his personal beliefs or values".
In a statement Wednesday evening, the company "announced that the independent directors of the company have accepted the resignation of John H. Schnatter as Chairman of the Board".
Schnatter came under fire in May, accused of using the racial slur in a conference call in which he went into graphic detail describing violence against minorities.
