Papa Johns Pulls Ads from Wonkette After Revolting Post About Trig Palin
Newsrealblog ^ | Wednesday April 20, 2011

Posted on 04/20/2011 1:45:59 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

This is what needs to be done and thanks to sites like Twitter and to citizen journalism, it can happen. Papa Johns was alerted to the beyond odious post on Wonkette and, as a result, they say they are taking steps to ensure their ads no longer appear on the sewer slime trash site.

@robertcurlin Thank you for alerting us to this. We’ve taken steps to make sure our advertising doesn’t appear on that site in the future. about 3 hours ago via HootSuite in reply to robertcurlin

If you choose to be disgusting and vile in order to garner the attention you so desperately crave, don’t be surprised when that attention backfires when those with common decency are outraged and call you out on it. And when advertisers use their right to pull their ads from sites that publish absolute filth. Well done, Papa Johns.

I suggest we all go out and by a Papa John’s pizza this week. And if Hugs pulls their ads, I’ll buy some diapers today. No babies here but I’ll buy them anyhow.

I looked at disgusting site this morning but I did not see that Hugs ad. So very weird. I’ll buy diapers as well and donate them somewhere.
Papa Johns for super tonight.

And they were advertising on Wonkette before this because???

Don’t companies bother to exercise a little oversight into ad placements anymore? Apparently not.... pay some ad firm to get them X number of exposures for the best price, with no regard to where. Maybe they’ll be more responsible going forward.

That is all fine and good, but why advertize on that radical hacks site in the first place? Papa Johns pizza is terrible anyway. I don't think I can get drunk and high enough to pick up a piece and eat it. I remember thinking, last time I was offered it, that his product made Dominoes look delicious.

You are correct, but worth buying over this. You could always give it to a homeless person. Sweet care by the way.

I think you are right. They pay some company to do web ads and don’t even know where they go... but they should be aware of where the ads go. If it’s vile, they should request ad be placed elsewhere.

"Never had a papa john’s pizza..."

As chain-pizza places go, they're pretty good. I much prefer them to Domino's or Godfather's (Sorry Herman Cain).

I’ll be sure to order the team lunch from Papa Johns this week. Seems corporate stewardship in this country is lacking and Papa Johns stepped up.

These adds were pulled because conservatives and tea party members pushed back against advertisers on Twitter.

Make your voice heard there...

I think the best bet is targeting Coca Cola. After all, children must be a huge part of their consumers. Bravo to Huggies and Papa John’s.

went online, found the nearest papajohns and reviewed menu, we ordered two large pizzas, the special running here just outside indianapolis is two for twenty dollars and we got a three dollar cinnamon small pizza like thing (that is FABULOUS) and just finished devouring part of it.

We will be going back to papa johns...I am not kidding. It is the best pizza we have had in years and years and the first time in the 15 yrs we have lived here that we purchased one.

Our bad!

I also told the manager there that we were there to give them business because of the rapid way John took his ad off of a website (and named wonkette) that ridiculed Sarah Palin's little child. I asked her to please send this info to htq. and she wrote down everything. Hope she does.
