Founder and CEO of Papa John's, John Schnatter, who has a personal net wealth of $801 million dollars, is complaining that NFL players taking the knee in protest of systemic racism and police brutality against African-Americans is causing him to lose money.
The NFL has hurt Papa John's shareholders. This should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago. The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country.
This isn't the first time Schnatter has put profits over the well-being of people.
If Obamacare is in fact not repealed, we will find tactics to shallow out any Obamacare costs and core strategies to pass that cost onto consumers in order to protect our shareholders best interests.
Papa John’s CEO says NFL protests have ‘hurt us’... You know who’ll never eat Papa Johns again? Mike Brown, Philando Castile, Eric Garner...— Cyrus McQueen (@CyrusMMcQueen) November 1, 2017
I started boycotting when he bitched about supplying health insurance to employees. This racist crap just seals the deal for me.— AquaShna (@shna23) November 1, 2017
I hope this Papa John's thing doesn't just blow over and everybody begins to appreciate the local ma & pop pizza shops more— Chris Hairston (@C_Hairston75) November 1, 2017
I’m worried about the horrors that are taking place in our communities, I have no time for rich peoples problems.— Debra Simpson 📚🍷🦋 (@DebraJo1953) November 1, 2017
Papa Johns sales have tanked. It's almost like people don't wanna support a business that opposes minimum wage, healthcare & tastes like 💩— prinz JFC (@sylvesteralkan0) November 2, 2017
People have decided to not support a large corporation that doesn't support a living wage or healthcare for employees, and Papa Johns is mad— Alternative NOAA (@altNOAA) November 2, 2017
Papa Johns, we both know damn well why your sales are tanking. Last time I put your cold pizza in my microwave, Kellyanne Conway crawled out— Aiden Wolfe (@AidenWolfe) November 2, 2017
