Papa John's gets absolutely scorched on Twitter after report that founder used the n-word

Papa John's gets absolutely scorched on Twitter after report that founder used the n-wordPizza lovers no longer care how good your ingredients are, Papa John's. They're jumping ship and taking their appetite for subpar pizza elsewhere. On Wednesday, after Forbes reported that John Schnatter, founder and former CEO of Papa John's, used the n-word during a conference call in May, people came for the brand on Twitter. SEE ALSO: Papa John's founder used the n-word on a conference call Though Schnatter resigned as chairman of the board on Wednesday in response to backlash, he still owns 30 percent of the company's stock, according to the New York Times. Not to mention Papa John's still includes his name in the title, so it's pretty clear why many have decided to boycott the pizza chain. The insults, reevaluation of pizza loyalties, and saucy jokes at the company's expense flooded Twitter after the initial report: Ranked best pizza...1. Your neighborhood pizza------------314. Pizza Hut-----------765. Tombstone Pizza---------1108. School pizza with the little cube pepperoni------1,436,213. A toilet seat with ketchup---5,324,532.

In fact, some think  he could have a very promising career in politics working for President Donald Trump, who's said and done racist things on many occasions. The CEO of Papa Johns used the N-word in a conference call... which means Trump will likely consider him for his next Chief of Staff... — Cyrus McQueen (@CyrusMMcQueen) July 11, 2018 BREAKING: Trump names Papa John as new White House chef — Adam Blickstein (@AdamBlickstein) July 12, 2018 BREAKING NEWS: Papa John’s has now been promoted to White House Head Executive Chef The fact that you will have to google to see if this is true says a lot about our current administration — MommaT (@tweetmommybop) July 12, 2018 And if for some reason you think Papa John's pizza is the most delicious food on the planet and will miss it dearly, have no fear!
