As in, "to pull a Papa John." When a non-black person quotes someone else saying the n-word, in order to try to use the word himself without getting in trouble. A reference to the founder of Papa John's pizza, John Schnatter, who said on a July 2018 conference call with a marketing agency that "Colonel Sanders called blacks niggers and Sanders never faced public outcry."
My history teacher pulled a Papa John during our Civil War lesson.

The worst-ever place to work. They'll pay you minimum wage and schedule you for you 15 hours a week, 8 of which you'll actually get to work. You'll work through the busiest part of the day, and they'll send you home as soon as you get a chance to relax a little. If you're unfortunate enough to get suckered into managing a Papa John's, they'll put you on salary and work you 75 hours a week. (That way they don't have to pay overtime.)

Also the worst-ever place to order pizzas. As a direct result of hating their jobs so much, the employees automatically hate you for ordering from them. They'll do a shitty job on your pie, and even if they drop it or a fly lands in the sauce, they'll still box it and send it to you. And they never, ever wash their hands, even after going to the bathroom. Trust me.
I think my Papa John's pizza had a hair and some dead roaches on it. Yeah, that's definitely a roach.
