Papa John's: We didn't mean to be 'divisive' on National Football League protests

Papa John's We didn't mean to be'divisive on NFL protests

Open to ideas from all.

"Is this supposed to be Woke Papa John's Pizza?" tweeted @danibostick.

Papa John's is trying to fix the damage caused by its CEO's controversial comments about the National Football League protests.

Redskins place Rob Kelley, Will Compton on injured reserve
Compton suffered a Lisfranc sprain, the same injury that forced defensive lineman Jonathan Allen onto the IR earlier this season. The second-year running back has logged 62 carries for 194 yards and three touchdowns this season.

The chain then used an emoji for the middle finger, "those guys".

At the beginning of the month, Papa John's company founder and CEO John Schnatter came out of nowhere and blasted the NFL for not doing anything to stop players from protesting during the National Anthem, because it was bad for their business. "This should've been nipped in the bud a year and half ago". "The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country". However, the company made efforts to distance itself from the quick approval of the white supremacist website The Daily Stormer, which posted an image of a pizza pie with pepperoni slices arranged into a swastika and suggested that Papa John's was now the "official pizza of the alt-right". While it's not required, Commissioner Roger Goodell has made it clear he wants players to stand. The controversy kicked off after San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem past year, inspiring other players to engage in similar forms of protest to recognize racial inequality and police brutality.

"Leadership starts at the top and this is an example of poor leadership", Schnatter said.

Marquise Goodwin loses baby hours before football game
He blew a kiss toward the sky as he crossed the goal line before falling to his knees in the end zone. But Goodwin chose to play, helping San Francisco get its first win of the season.

In a three-tweet mea culpa, the Louisville-based company did a 180 and said it supported players' right to protest.

Schnatter's original comments turned his company into an emblem of the political and cultural divide in the United States, with some people advocating boycotts of Papa John's and others praising his stance.

The NFL couldn't immediately be reached for comment late Tuesday.
