Was Papa John’s Founder Treated Unfairly?

Fox Sports 1’s Jason Whitlock recently sat down with Fox’s Clay Travis and spoke about Papa John’s founder John Schnatter’s decision to step down after making a racial slur.

Whitlock considers this as a smear campaign because of Schnatter’s conservative views.

“[T]his was an intentional stirred up, ginned up controversy to damage Papa John,” Whitlock said. “He had irritated people well beyond his comments about the NFL. Papa Johns has supported Trump, he’s a hardcore conservative — people don’t like him. So, I think they have unfairly attacked him and damaged his name, and smeared him with the charge of racism. It’s a tactic that’s very popular right now in America, but it’s not productive and/or healthy.”

    I have never met a perfect man. Have you? When are we going to stop these hypocrites who call the righteous as being foolish? They are imperfect and that is the pot calling the kettle black.

    Just like Chic Fi La, I hope millions of people will buy their pizzas. I pray those who are so judgemental will come under conviction and seek the Savior. Time is short and the Fig Tree, (Israel is a nation again as promised that Savior will be coming soon and very soon) is in full blossom. Get Right OR GET LEFT.

      Actually, I hope no one will buy their pizzas now that John has been scrapped. He was right about the NFL and hie more recent statement was also on target. The NFL and Pappa Johns BOTH deserve to sink.

        Sorry, he still owns one of the best Pizza Companies. Have you ever had a Papa John’s Pizza? There was only one pizza breading better than Paps John’s I ever tasted was Pizza Inn and I haven’t seen one of those places in years. The best pizza breading for a pizza for taste is Papa John’s. Excellent pizzas.

          The only ones I had that were better were (i) a small local pizza joint called Hectors and (ii) an original Godfathers Pizza. Both are long gone. However, there are two small local spots where I live now that are just a bit farther and nearly as good.

      • Dexter L. Wilson

        He still owns the company, Papa John’s Pizza.

          and should the curent “management” bring him back, I’ll eat their pizza again.
