Papa John's Apologized For Blaming Sales Slump On NFL Players Protesting, But People Didn’t Want To Hear It

"This bulls**t apology took way too long to come out."

Published November 15th

Just two weeks ago, Papa John's CEO John Schnatter said that his pizza company is pulling its NFL-associated ads because players protesting during the national anthem are hurting its sales.

Well with shares of Papa John's stock down nearly 12 percent since then, as reported by ESPN, the company took to its official Twitter account yesterday and apologized for being "divisive" with a series of tweets.

But by the looks of these reactions, nobody was trying to hear Papa John's apology at all.

  1. Papa John's apologized for its 'divisive' comments with this series of tweets

    But the pizza company would find out quickly that people weren't trying to hear it at all.

  2. Shaun King quickly translated and broke down those tweets

    Talk to 'em!

  3. Papa John's tried to explain why it took so long to apologize, but people got them all the way together for that, too

    Bloop!

  4. Others simply called 'bulls**t' on that apology and said that Papa John's is flat out 'lying'

    The apology coming while the company's stock is down says a lot.

  5. When Papa John's tried to say that its CEO contributed to this apology, people were quick to bring up Trump

    No way out of this one, Papa John's.

  6. People also posted a clip of Plies destroying Papa John's with others reminding the company that its pizza just isn't very good

    Shade!

  7. So, when it comes down to this apology, people grouped it alongside Papa John's pizza in saying ...

    You did this to yourself, Papa John's.
