Papa John’s Blames NFL Protesting for Low Pizza Sales

Let me be the first to say that Papa John’s pizza is trash anyways.

The company’s sales have been declining, and instead of blaming this on their terrible recipe, John Schnatter; Papa John’s CEO blames it on NFL protests, stating, “The NFL has hurt us by not resolving the current debacle to the players.”  The CEO’s comments are very dismissive, and they imply that the players voices should be silenced so their pizza can thrive, at the cost of our justice. Privilege is so cute! Sources say that his personal net worth has dropped by $70 Million in less than a day after his statements from the conference were released on Wednesday, November 1st. According to CNBC, on Thursday, Nov., 2, a spokesperson for Pizza Hut stated, “We’re not seeing any impact from any of that on our business.” Better yet, their sales increased.

The CEO’s comments are very dismissive, and they imply that the players voices should be silenced so their pizza can thrive, at the cost of our justice.

Papa John’s has made changes in their pizza recipe in the past, due to bad reviews in regards to the taste. And now, they have low sales, looks to me like their pizza never actually got better! \But, on the bright side, he is suffering the consequences of his comments (just a little.) The shade being thrown by another pizza company is a bonus.

Mr. Schnatter could use some notes from Ben & Jerry’s, the ice cream brand that acknowledged the injustice that their consumers go through everyday, even though they didn’t have to. Going against this grain is a very bad business move. People today are very vocal and active towards situations like these and will not hesitate to boycott a brand. Don’t give your money to company’s like Papa John’s that don’t care about your well being or the well being of the country. Plus, like I mentioned earlier, their pizza sucks!
