After CEO John Schnatter complained about the NFL protesters, Papa John’s was designated the official pizza of the alt-right. Grace Baldridge, Nando Vila and Simone Boyce the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT: https://goo.gl/v8E64M. Papa John’s Pizza has had a rough couple of weeks, which began when CEO John Schnatter seemed to suggest that the company’s flagging profits were the fault of protesting NFL players. “The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country,” he said about the incidents in which players refused to stand for the national anthem, blaming NFL executives for showing “poor leadership” by not putting the kibosh on the protests, which were started to call attention to police brutality against black Americans.
While he may have just been trying to avoid getting dipped in garlic sauce by investors, Schnatter’s remarks were widely reviled, except for a previously untapped group of customers. Unfortunately for Papa John’s, these customers are Nazis. It all started when neo-Nazi and white supremacist website The Daily Stormer proclaimed that, due to Schnatter’s statement, Papa John’s was the “official pizza of the alt-right.”
