White Supremacists claim Papa John's as official pizza

White Supremacists claim Papa John's as official pizza

Papa John's pizzas are a bit like a holiday fruitcake: nobody really likes them and they're nearly exclusively gifted to you by one of your racist relatives.

Mr. Schnatter's comments earned the endorsement of white supremacist website The Daily Stormer, which asked if Papa John's should now be considered the "official pizza of the alt-right".

The site has already given Wendy's and New Balance its kiss of death, so the illustration's caption can't excite Schnatter or the chain's other execs: "Papa John: Official pizza of the alt-right?"

HOUSTON-Following recent comments made by Papa John's regarding the NFL kneeling during the National Anthem, the pizza chain has received plenty of backlash and have been accused of racism. The chain is recognized as the official pizza of the NFL. The blog post included a photo of a pizza with pepperoni slices arranged in a swastika pattern.

Along with a string of racial insults, the Daily Stormer concluded that "This might be the first time ever in modern history that a major institution is going to be completely destroyed explicitly because of public outrage over their anti-White agenda".

After Price left Amazon, so did head of scripted programming Joe Lewis, followed by head of unscripted programming Conrad Riggs. Amazon is now investigating the claims by speaking with everyone involved with Transparent's production and Tambor himself.

"The point is I wouldn't address that as much as I am just how much of an expert [Schnatter] is in this area of gauging consumer and fan response", said Jones, who has ownership interest in 120 Papa John's stores.

Peter Collins, a public relations representative for the company, told the Louisville Courier Journal on Monday that Papa John's does not want nor does it need the business of racists. "But we're certainly disappointed that the National Football League and its leadership did not resolve the ongoing situation to the satisfaction of all parties long ago".

"The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country", he said about the incidents in which players refused to stand for the national anthem, blaming NFL executives for showing "poor leadership" by not putting the kibosh on the protests, which were started to call attention to police brutality against black Americans.

Why does a pizza place have to denounce white supremacists?

Brands, stated that the chain was "not seeing impact on any of that on our business".
