Papa John CEO Apologizes For Comments On Anthem Protests: “F-ck Neo-Nazi’s”

Earlier this month, Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter came out of nowhere and blasted the NFL for not “taking control” and stopping players from protesting during the National Anthem, blaming them for his poor pizza sales:

“The NFL leadership has hurt Papa John’s shareholders. The NFL has been a long and valued partner over the years. But we’re certainly disappointed that the NFL and its leadership did not resolve the ongoing situation to the satisfaction of all parties long ago. This should’ve been nipped in the bud a year and half ago.”

This turned out to be a disaster for the pizza chain as they saw it’s net worth drop $70 million just a few days after the comments were made by Schnatter.

Well, it took almost two weeks for the company to realize that it probably wasn’t a good idea to take that kind of swipe at the NFL as they’ve come out and apologized for playing this outrageous blame game:

But it was part three of their apology tweet(s) that caught everyone’s attention as they took a shot at Neo-Nazi’s.

Better pizza, better ingredients even better excuses?
