Papa John’s sales are down. Who do they blame? Why the NFL, of course. They are claiming that the kneeling protests are the issue. It has nothing to do with the fact that their pizza is absolutely disgusting. Oh no. It obviously has got to be the protests. Insert the eye roll to end all eye rolls here.
Papa Johns says anthem protests have significantly hurt business, pulled some advertising, cite lack of leadership https://t.co/9TFuabJ4Kw

Papa John’s cited the NFL’s lack of leadership to resolve this issue is what caused sluggish sales. Yeah. Just throw the 1st amendment out the window so that Papa John’s pizza sales can increase. Everything in the entire world must revolve around adding more cushion to this one billionaire’s pocket. Forget about social injustices. Money is the only leadership needed.

Media, a rich white guy is complaining about low sales. He doesn’t want to take responsibility so he’s blaming those few NFL folks that kneel during the National Anthem.
Colin Kaepernick has done it now, taking dollars away from the billionaire founder of a pizza franchise. I'll alert the media. #PapaJohns

Think about this logically. No one is refusing to buy Papa John’s because of the kneeling. People are refusing to buy Papa John’s because their pizza is nasty.
“Man no way am I eating Papa Johns until those NFL players stop kneeling” that doesn’t even make sense lol

Papa John’s major issue is that gross sauce they slap on those pizzas. The sauce they use is sickeningly sweet. Tomatoes are not supposed to taste like that. Much less marinara sauce. Add some spices instead of sugar.
Papa Johns pizza tastes like scapegoat cheese with ketchup on a crust of stale excuses.

Just in case Papa John’s owner is unaware of why some choose to kneel, let’s clear it up for him. NFL players are protesting racial injustices and police brutality. The players found a non-violent way to protest this ever-growing problem. Who would expect some rich white dude to understand any of that?
Reminder: NFL players are protesting racial injustice & police brutality (as they should). Not our troops, the Flag, or the National Anthem.

Calling all Trump supporters. Your dictator approved pizza can be purchased from Papa John’s.
All Papa Johns is doing is announcing itself as the official pizza of Trump supporters. Let's move along, continue not eating their product.

Seriously though, you cannot make some of this stuff up. It is simply ridiculous. Racism will not be tolerated in America from anybody (We’re looking at you Papa John’s owner). Why is kneeling such a threat to some folks? Do not you kneel when you propose? It is a respectful way to protest the grotesque things that keep happening to minorities. Open up your mind and your eyes to what is truly taking place. Look beyond the act towards the issue. How can we change this?
