Papa Johns

Papa John's pizza founder John Schnatter was forced to do damage control to avoid another PR disaster after complaining loudly about the ongoing NFL protests last week.

It all began when the racists over at the Daily Stormer blog hopped onto the tail end of Schnatter's decision to pull his NFL Ads over the National Anthem protests, which he blamed for hurting his pizza profits.

According to a Newsweek article, Schnatter was forced to tell the hothead racist group to stop eating his pizza after they adopted the pizza chain as "the official pizza of the 'alt-right'".

In a statement to the HuffPost, Schnatter said, “We condemn racism in all forms and any and all hate groups that support it. We do not want these individuals or groups to buy our pizza.”

But it may be too little too late. Papa John's stock price fell nearly 10 percent in the days after he announced the decision to pull his NFL ads.

    YOUR PIZZA IS NASTY..

  • Noirluv45

    How much do you want to bet he is blaming Black football players for his demise? He's probably calling them all kinds of N's. The only reason he's denouncing racist groups is because they are making matters worse.

  • Miss Thang

    Please do not feel sorry for this man. "Papa John" has always been an asshole. I worked for Zimmerman Advertising here in Ft. Lauderdale, and he and our CEO hung out all the time. This man had the nerve to make it so that no employees were allowed to order from any other pizza place than Papa Johns. He is an utter asshole. No other client had as big of an ego.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Well now he has no one to eat his shitty pizza.. We don't want it now the ones who whitely support it can't eat it? Bye Pappi..

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    The bottom is about to fall right out that stock then...

  • Noirluv45

    Not once out of sorrow for this man.

  • klwbaby

    If racists want to eat that nasty azz cardboard pizza, why should I care?

  • bella28498 .

    white business owners finally realize they are rich due to black ppl too late I spend less money as possible with white business owners and I have been saving a lot of money because of it.

  • Clorox

    local pizzarias anywhere are better. dijiornos is also trying to step their marketing game up and PLUS i heard they got stuffed crust??? john can sit on and rotate.

  • bella28498 .

    I would never feel sorry for a white man with more money than me.....dont worry lol

  • wonderwoman

    He can go somewhere with that nasty a&& pizza. I whether Digorno’s anyway.

  • Elevated Soul

    Which racists is he talking about? Is he talking about left wing racists (Antifa) who go around killing White Christians at a church or perhaps people who are presumed to be conservative enjoying a country music fest,like the one in Vegas.....Or perhaps the Sudanese immigrant that shot up the white church in Tennessee a few months ago,that Fake News has also been silent about.

    Papa John's like most pizza to me is just nasty unless it's authentic,I don't deal with it but it's his business. NFL ratings are on the decline and Black people are not his supporters anyway....

    People who aren't Democrats have got to stop letting these "lame snowflakes" define who is racist,because in more than most cases,it is the ALT-LEFT who are the intolerant ones among us...........

  • Rayne

    Baby he ain't gotta do that. That pizza is the pizza you eat before you become an adult. #starterpizza ?

  • Rayne

    He looks like an azz hole with those hair plugs and foundation powder on. Lips just as chapped as a horses ? ass.

  • EYESOFLAURAMARS

    Which racists is he talking about? Himself? Because he was on TV pre-election talking about how he was donating big to the Trump campaign and he did not like Obama. I told everyone I knew not to eat PJ's pizza- no one was anyways.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Little Caesars will be getting my business from now on, not Papa Johns.

    And another one... ? FOH John

    Shyt is worse than the pizza at chuckie cheese? Sandra did you do a post on Bey and her Lil Kim poses? I think they're cute https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/93f62be531a5dc4d97458cd899e41cdf516289a268d8115c7eb9339ea96f6a9a.jpg

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Halloween been over... Shout out to Lil Kim.... It's November ... She still instagram thotting out here ?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    That is super cute! I've always wondered what Bey would look like with wild colored hair. She always sticks to "normal" hair colors (blonde, brown, black, reddish). She can most def pull off these other hair colors from time to time.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Domino's and Little Cesar's is better than that overly priced PJ's s**t any day of the year. And they're cheaper, too.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I saw those pics on Friday. It's sad that she won't take time off to raise her twins. She is so thirsty for attention. She's too old for that.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

  • Youngblood

    WHITE PEOPLE GON LEARN. What you wont do is keep fing with blacks thinking sh8t is sweet. if We only buy from black owned whites are done.i mean done. we run this sh8t and always really have our word is bond

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    I don't like papa johns pizza. But, all of this was debunked but you can keep repeating what you read. How is someone racist because they don't like Obama? ?

  • ?E?E?M?A

    It's just pizza girl. Not that deep

  • i troll it like i see it

    Like seven years ago a friend of mine was trying to tell me not to eat Papa Johns because the owners political beliefs were disgusting, I should have listened a hell of a lot sooner. I know a lot of people behind the products we consume may have a gross belief system that we are unaware of, but when you know better you do better. Haven't eaten there in a while and won't be back.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    This is true but the only problem with that is blacks would try to get rich off 1 pizza.

  • Kayke

    As if she couldnt have had that shoot at home, while the babies slept 7000 sq ft away.

  • Liah

    Indeed!!!...The power we have is UNBELIEVABLE when we come together as one!

  • Liah

    I agree 100%!!!...And she "hid" @ Kellys party....SMH!...Get her Auntie!

  • A D N

    I won't eat Papa Johns again. Too late for a forced apology. He doesn't mean it anyway. I don't need that type of unhealthy food anyway.

    WTF are you talking about idiotrose and the idiots who agree with you? She is paying homage to the Queen Bee just like you are paying homage to the boogeyman. Let her do her thing, just like you're going yours.

  • GuestSTAR

    If you liked Papa John's, switch to Papa Murphy's same concept.

  • SumthinSweeter

    SR you are also a race baiter. As a person of African decent, why would you lower yourself to post blogs like this? Like seriously, explain yourself.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Don't feel bad. I didn't listen either This was actually my fav chain pizza because i like sauce. I will just continue eating Dominos now.

  • ShWa

    Nope too late never ate it never will.....

  • ShWa

    Nope too late never ate it never will.....

  • ShWa

    Yes we really need to buckle down and at least do majority black owned shopping, trying my best to do it as often as possible, I need to do more tho.

  • NeverSurprised

    Why does she need to "explain herself" to you? If you don't like what she posts on HER blog, don't read it. Bounce. Sandra doesn't take orders from you or anyone else. If you want to voice a dissenting opinion, she is always open to that. But don't come in here DEMANDING that she writes what YOU want her to write. Start you own damned blog and then you can post whatever the hell you want.

  • Wreckognize Game

    If Dominos acts a donkey I will be pizzaless. Pizza Hut acts like they gotta ration their tired ass sauce.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Chile I go, say, do, post and comment as I please. Cape all you want, but do you expect for everybody to keep a doo-doo tongue from licking out of peoples asses just because they have a point of view from running a blog? Any and everything can be refuted on the web. Some will agree with her, some will not. Grow up little one.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Naw she looked a damn fool. Not a good look. But cuter homage and all...

  • SumthinSweeter

    Thank you! Like really who has not read all the fakeness in between the lines? She stay borrowing or "stealing" to remain relevant.

  • NeverSurprised

    Nice try. Now how about addressing my point. You told her to EXPLAIN HERSELF. I repeat my inquiry: Who in the fiery pit of hell are YOU to demand that she EXPLAIN HERSELF? She wrote a factual article that you apparently have a problem with. How is it "racebaiting" to post the facts regarding the company's decision and the economic fallout therefrom? Because she's black, you seem to think she has an obligation to share that little pea-sized brain that you are utilizing and therefore post only what YOU approve of.

    I am so sick of NOBODIES like you running around trying to dictate what others say and do. Since you seem to want pre-approval of her content, suppose you pay a few of the blog's BILLS this month?

  • SumthinSweeter

    The day when you run me will be the day I address your big mad post ??

  • NeverSurprised

    So YOU can dictate what the BLOG OWNER should or shouldn't post, but the minute I tell you to let her run HER BLOG/HER COMPANY the way she wants, you claim I'm trying to "run" you. So you can dictate to others, but no one else can dictate to you. Correct? I wasn't aware of just how accurate I was when I said you had a pea-sized brain.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    He is worth 800 million, but does not provide health insurance for his employees. SMH!

  • SumthinSweeter

    Awesome news

  • We Can Do This

    A privileged one at that...

  • Elevated Soul

    Thank You very much!!!!

    I always pass PPJ's, and avoid at all cost. The prices are ridiculous. I found you can buy a pizza half prize from the supermarket. And the side dishes? You can get them for $1.31 at IL (god I had to use a converter to get it right).

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon

    I agree this is "her" blog, she should be able to say what she wants to. Lucky she allows people to comment, but you have to have a strong shield when it comes to blogging because not everyone is going to agree with what you have to say. There have been many times where I have stated my personal opinion on other Disqus sites and had people jump at me, and the things I said weren't really all that bad, just neutral comments based on media, and then you have someone trying to turn it into a big debate. The solution to that was just to block those people who kept going on, and on... like a record player - over nothing much really - they just wanted to start a flame war - damn keyboard warriors.

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com What?

    Yep because the only cities I see with a PJ are mostly white.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Ohhhh no no no buddy don’t back peddle and pu$$y pop now you see your change purse starting to get light!! Oh and I like how he straddled the fence when he said ANY and ALL groups because some consider BLM a hate group and racist so he could argue in private that he was speaking about them ?? either way John I can call you John right? We don’t want and ain’t going to buy your bland a$$ pizza and raw chicken wings you serving soon you won’t be ever able to give that crap away for free????? Oh well next time watch what you say!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This is news that concerns my readers because it involves black people protesting for equal rights. What else is there to explain?

  • Brenda Budd

    Whateva, nobody cares what u write...however, we ALL here for SR - including YOU lmao

  • Brenda Budd

    The owner is against equal treatment for the LGBT community, came out years ago against them. Haven't supported his xenophobic ass ever! (Or ate what everyone says is NASTY food ?)!

  • SumthinSweeter

    Your spin on race relation's irks my nerves. But in a way or your way, it is a spin or tactic to get more readers to post. I really avoid opening up any of your blogs dealing with political or racial content because more likely than not, my blood will run hot. However, I'm not gonna lie or deny that you post up really good blog/stories/gossip/reports.

  • Dane

    If black people would make it the rule rather than the exception, a lot of things would be different.

    Using the pizza example, we have a pizza place a couple towns over run by an Egyptian family. THE nicest people in the world. I don't care when we go, we're the only black family there. If everyone spent their Papa Johns money there, they'd get better pizza, better service, and be treated as family.

    So it's not just white people that need to learn.

  • SumthinSweeter

    awww ty! appreciate it!

  • http://thesinglewhitefemale.com Fefe

    Cause he didn't want to up his prices by 25 cents. This guy is NOT a good person.

  • Waya Hedia

    Calm down. This is one guy who owns a pizza chain. Don't be rayciss. You can't live in this country without buying something form white people.

  • Ryan

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. John's been a vocal dumbass for years.

  • Ryan

    Damn sweetie calm down. This is a public blog so at the end of the day you take the positive with the negative if you want them coins.

  • kekeb

    Oh wow!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I just read that Schnatter helped fund George Zimmerman's legal defense.

  • Ryan

    Wait what??

  • Jussjess25

    What really????? Can you upload the link to the article please..

  • Jussjess25

    Wow ?

  • ?Royalty?

    I used to frequent Bawsip. Your blog is 3000% better.

    If she really wants to have something to be angry about - she could just hang around that race baiting, Black women hating, stalker employed site, full of nutters. ??

  • EntrepreneurialSpirit

    Worth $800 million?!!!! From slanging that nasty ass pizza?!!!!! Let me go ahead and get my ish together

  • sunni_daze

    Well that's confusing. His whole beef was basically blaming "black players kneeling" for loss in revenue, but he doesn't want to be associated with Alt-Right because they're racist...okay

  • EYESOFLAURAMARS

    WHAT was debunked? I am not repeating what I read- I'm repeating what I HEARD him say...act dumb if you want, it was the WAY he talked about Obama that made it obvious to anyone with common sense WHY he does not like him- now I've said what I said so you can just keep your funky lil' attitude moving .

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    All of what you're repeating about Papa Johns founder was debunked it's called research and it's not hard. You must've misread my question because I asked why would he be considered racist just because he doesn't like Obama because in your last comment you claim he's racist because he doesn't like Obama but that doesn't make someone racist.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    He took his company public, and it's franchised, so he made money off of the stock.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    That's really sad. SMH!

  • don juan

    the rapper Plies has done a really great job of putting Papa John's in their place on his Instagram page. Almost 500,000 views.

  • EYESOFLAURAMARS

    It obviously must be hard for you. It was NOT debunked -are you stupid? Why would I research what I heard him say. I watched the interview. And you must have misread or can't read at all since I've ALREADY ANSWERED your question.
