Papa John’s Apologizes For Blaming Declining Sales On NFL Protests, Gives Middle Finger Emoji To Neo-Nazis

The New York Daily News reports:

Apparently Papa John’s doesn’t believe two weeks is too late to say sorry. The popular pizza chain apologized in a string of tweets Tuesday night for comments made on a Nov. 1 conference call with shareholders where CEO and TV pitchman John Schnatter insinuated the ongoing anthem protests have hurt his business.

Schnatter previously blamed commissioner Roger Goodell for allowing the anthem protests to continue rather than take a harsher stance against the demonstrations. Schnatter believes the anthem protests turned fans away from the game and, as a result, caused a decline in pizza sales.
