The response to Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter’s comments about the NFL and the national anthem protests has been mixed to say the least. The sides have fallen evenly on each side of the anthem debate we’ve seen in recent weeks — and the pizza debate that is always raging — becoming a major political issue thanks to the comments by President Trump towards the NFL and its owners. Now it could reach another, more despicable step, as Nazis and White Supremacists line up to make Papa John’s their official pizza.
As Huffpost points out, the self-described “alt-right” wants to piggyback on Papa John’s firm stance on the NFL controversy and are celebrating the comments from Schnatter through their typical channels:
“This is great,” wrote columnist Adrian Sol at The Daily Stormer, which has served as a platform for racists to gripe about the NFL’s racial makeup and their distaste for what the website has called the “Negro Felon League…
“This might be the first time ever in modern history that a major institution is going to be completely destroyed explicitly because of public outrage over their anti-White agenda,” Sol wrote after noting the news that Papa John’s was punishing the NFL for not cracking down on black dissent.
“Papa John: Official pizza of the alt-right?” Sol wondered.
