Well, no more Papa John’s pizza. By removing Schnatter the corporation is showing its support for the kneeling protests, for Kaeperdick, and for Black lives matter which was directly responsible for the murder of at least six honorable policemen. F Pappa John’s.
no more Papa Johns for us, then.
GTH PJs! you had a good executive and you shamed yourselves firing him
He should keep the CEO position.
The NFL is an example of poor leadership.
Amazing how the Anti-American forces are at work.
John represents everything that is near and dear to the American dream. The elitists hate that!
I’ll be buying his book soon.
He’ll be back though.
The backlash has only just begun.
I’m done with Papa Johns after this .
A shame as they made damn good pizzas and I ordered at least one a week
Papa John’s can go to hell.
Humm. Take a look at Papa John’s stock chart. At least a year of going downhill.
He is not a "politician". That in large part is why we voted for him.
Cross them off the list.
Wow. I guess we know who side they’re on.
I make my own pizza. But this will hurt PJ
Hmmm, Ill bet he never signed a non-compete agreement. He needs to go out and form another company
$1k? What about the other 1.7? The limit.

Gosh, thanks John, you POS supersonic pussy.
What you lack is are balls and a dick.
If you do make your pizza, your FR name sounds really good. I worked marketing for a Manhattan-based ad agency and I think it will work.
Did a feedback form on their site. 10-year customer.
I need to learn.
