To say things have not been going well for Papa John’s seems like an understatement. It all started towards the end of last year, when the pizza chain’s then-CEO John Schnatter blamed slumping sales on the NFL protests against police brutality and racial injustice in this country, a move that scored him fans in the alt-right (Papa John’s was the official NFL pizza sponsor until February of this year.) Schnatter then stepped down as the company’s CEO, but remained the head of the board and the public face of the company.

I bet you if he would of said Rape, Murder and drug uses ( real crimes that hurt people) other than the N word he still have a job. Are we really this weak ? Are black people really this offended and weak willed towards that word ? bear in mind, it thrown around more often than 'The' 'and' and 'But' in most rap vids and yet in a closed door meeting it causes someone to have to step down from the company they made…..
Thumbs after five seconds in just because it's a white boy 🚮
CN (N)…race bating is not attractive. Calling Papa John racist is wrong. These situations had nothing to do with race, but a misunderstanding from snowflakes of the context. I swear, if you race baiters didnt have race to talk about, you wouldn't know what to do with your lives. You would probably die of boredom.
Nasty ass pizza
Mr. John Schnatter, please, nobody likes you, nobody can't stand your BULL SHIT, so please, just go vanished !
Shit tastes like cardboard anyway.
always getting the white guy to do race controversial topics
So this is where millennials get their news
Thats kinda dumb to take a shit load iff profit away from him cause a word that was prolly used on accident
"Who cares" ? Really!!! We see how this is something you are offended by right ? Not! This man was vile and wanted blacks to buy his food but still insult them and you say who cares!!!!!

This is unacceptable, but why does no one ever point out when black people are racist?
""""His greasy face""" lmao 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
HE JUST WANTED TO BE FAMOUS . HE DIDN'T HAVE TO PUT HIS FACE ALL OVER THE COMMERCIALS AND PIZZA BOXES . HE JUST WANTED TO BE FAMOUS SO HE COULD BANG ALL THEM HOT , YOUNG TWENTY YEAR OLD WOMEN .
He looks like an O' Racist..not surprised.
I love how libtards like complex try to make it sound like he is racist
If he was black then no one would care just saying
boy said who cares about a stadium? who cares about this show
Petition for lil John to be the new John
His face made the pizza worth buying……..gonna miss him
in those bad commercials…..lol
People do your own research. There were so many details and facts left out of this video about the context of what happened and how and why the "n" word was used. I don't know why Complex even covered this story if they are not going to be accurate or honest.
