In wake of neo-Nazi web site The Daily Stormer’s endorsement of Papa Johns, the restaurant chain is asking hate teams to not purchase its pizzas.
The endorsement got here after Papa Johns CEO John Schnatter made feedback blaming National Football League gamers kneeling throughout the nationwide anthem for the corporate’s latest losses. Newsweek stories The Daily Stormer confirmed its badist to the chain by posting an image of a swastika pizza and declaring Papa Johns the official pizza of the alt-right.
Senior director of public relations for Papa Johns stated the corporate “condemns racism in all forms and any and all hate groups that support it.” He added that the corporate does not need “these individuals or groups to buy our pizza.”
Papa Johns is an official sponsor of the NFL.
