Papa John's tweets apology for being 'divisive' when ripping NFL

Papa John's tweets apology for being 'divisive' when ripping NFL

Papa John's sought to distance itself from the far-right movement after its controversial response to national anthem protests from several NFL players.

"This should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago", Schnatter said on a conference call with investors.

That last sentence is in reference to a supremacist website saying the company is the official pizza of the alt-right after Schnatter made his comments.

On Tuesday, Papa John's Pizza said in a series of tweets "The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive. Except neo-nazis", the company tweeted, offering a "middle finger" emoji to "those guys". "That definitely was not our intention". When you acknowledge that the kneeling protests ONE thing only, specifically police brutality against minorities and that the protests do not disrespect either the military nor our flag, THEN I MIGHT consider eating your s***ty pizza again.

Declining viewership and loss of advertising revenue were previously raised as major concerns by Jerry Jones, Dan Snyder and other National Football League owners regarding potential negative consequences of the ongoing anthem protests.

The Salvation Army Kingston needs more volunteers for annual Kettle Campaign
All the money raised in red kettles in the Walla Walla Valley will stay here, she said. Organizers say this is a great opportunity to make a difference in someone's life.

Schnatter previously blamed commissioner Roger Goodell for allowing the anthem protests to continue rather than take a harsher stance against the demonstrations.

"The NFL has hurt us by not resolving the current debacle to the players' and owners' satisfaction", Schnatter said in an earnings call on November 1, via Bloomberg.

Despite the pizza chain's efforts Tuesday to address the criticism over those remarks, some social media users weren't convinced.

Apparently Papa John's doesn't believe two weeks is too late to say sorry. "I don't see an apology for that".
