Skip to comments.Papa Johns Pulls Ads from Wonkette After Revolting Post About Trig Palin

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. Weve taken steps to make sure our advertising doesnt 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, dont 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.
Good...who else advertises on that vile website? Call them out.
Never had a papa john’s pizza but have seen his ads many times TV. Gonna change this and get a papa john’s asap.
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.
Well, my quandary at what to have for dinner tonight has just been solved.
Really? I have three grandkids in diapers. :)
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.
Celebrity Cruises ad appears on wonkett page. I e-mailed them
I bet I’d be amazed at the companies that advertise on pornographic sites. If I visited them.
You are correct, but worth buying over this. You could always give it to a homeless person. Sweet care by the way.

Coldwater Creek, Nescafe, Constant Contact,were some others
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.
Nearly every town has a soup kitchen...buy them some PJ's pizza...it's a win-win!
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.
Huffington Post bans Trig trutherism articles.This means that they wont print that garbage on AOL headlines anymore.
Send them a "Thank You" :-)
Tweet from Huggies:
@Huggies: All We do not support the @Wonkette story & have taken action 2 pull r ads, effective immediately. TY 4 bringing this issue to r attn!

Papa John’s Customer Feedback
Send them a “Thank You” :-)
Likewise for Huggies:
...so who’s the genius behind Wonkette? Let’s have some faces and names...
Good news! - Keep it comin’
This is the piece of shit responsible for it.
More advertisers: via twitter
Yep, thats the piece of shit.
Good for them!
Yup. Fat Jack himself.
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.
Looks like he’s been separated at birth with Michael Moore.
More advertisers: Twitter links.
I’m basically an old bag now (55; no grandkids).
The story is going viral!
This is great! The little fatty is now calling for a boycott of Papa John’s, lol! Whatta way to attract other advertisers.
Just read a great new word: buycott.
I'm in for this weekend.
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.
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.
Doubt that boy has ever seen a live woman naked before...what a vile, stinking pig...hope his mother is REEEEEEAL proud. Doesn’t say much for Georgetown, either...
Just finished our first...well, part of it, two large pizza's will do us for lunch tomorrow and then some, lol! One was called John's favorite and the other a custom order, anything ya want on it, two for twenty dollars, both large. Got that cinnomon thingie two (yum!!!) Got the drinks at home....bud light.
Gotta tell ya...it is SUPER PIZZA. Not kidding!!!!!!
ALso saw where someone above gave fast track to customer feedback at papa johns htq, I hope, and I sent them off a note!
Lovely! Freepers are the best! I’m looking for a Papa John’s near me.
I went to his facebook page and it doesn’t even look like he’s a Georgetown graduate. And - if you can believe it - he was an English major.
...so he’s just a ‘wannabe’ wearing the sweatshirt..?
What's the email contact?
