Papa John - the ex-founder of Papa John’s - has hit the headlines again. First of all, John Schnatter resigned from his pizza empire because he used the n-word during a media sensitivity training call. Then it transpired that Schnatter had to be evicted from his office at Papa John’s headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky.
And now, everyone’s favourite disgraced former pizza papa gave an interview to a Kentucky news station in which he - get this - attacked Papa John’s.
Schnatter said he had eaten a rather impressive (or shocking, depending on your stance on calorific cheese-laden carbs) 40 pizzas and in the last 30 days. That’s right, 40. In a month. And he claimed it wasn’t as tasty as it used to be.
He said: "I've had over 40 pizzas in the last 30 days and it's not the same pizza," he said. "It's not the same product. It just doesn't taste as good."
Hey, we’ve all had pizza regret but most people don’t attack the messenger.
According to Schnatter, the pizza is so bad now that he thinks former Papa John's board member and current Papa John's board member, Mark Shapiro and Olivia Kirtley, "should be in jail." He then said, a "day of reckoning" is coming.
Schnatter said of the new Papa John's CEO: "He has no pizza experience. He has never been in the pizza category. He doesn't really know quality. Probably most important, he doesn't have a passion for people."
To the surprise of absolutely no one, the weird video promptly went viral and lit up the Twittersphere.
