Papa John is back after losing his company, and warns them that a "day of reckoning is coming" for them.
In 2018, Former Papa John's CEO John Schnatter was kicked out of office for using the N-word on a conference call with its ad agency. Since then, the company has moved on and continued to deliver Pizzas without John as their official face of the company. John however, has clearly not moved on.
In a recent interview, "Papa" John Schnatter made a big claim saying the board of directors purposefully "used the black community and race as a way to steal the company." I also want to mention that John claimed that he "had over 40 pizzas in the last 30 days, and it's not the same pizza."
No one is buying any of this... maybe except for the pizza part. There's proof of him using the racial slur, and he's already admitted to doing it, so I don't think he'll be welcomed back to his former company ever again. But still, Schnatter tells us to stay tuned, and prepare for "a day of reckoning." If that sounds a little too intense for the pizza industry... it is.
Where do you think this story could go? Maybe nothing will happen, or it's possible he could try to start a new pizza company. Regardless, I just hope the end times of pizza isn't among us.
