Papa John’s will stop using John Schnatter’s image in its marketing and branding efforts, a move meant to distance the pizza chain from its founder after it was reported that he used inappropriate language.

For years, the company has used Mr. Schnatter in television commercials and featured him in some of its logos. That strategy was upended this week, after Forbes reported Mr. Schnatter used a racial slur and other inflammatory language during a May conference call.
