Papa John's ex-CEO John Schnatter slams pizza chain in viral video

Papa John's Founder John Schnatter Slams the Pizza Chain in Heated InterviewMore

Papa John's founder and former CEO John Schnatter sat down for an interview with local Kentucky news station WDRB News to discuss his recent ouster from the company and what's up next for him. "Even the pizzas don't appear to be made the way that I made them just a few years ago", Schnatter said.

"If the management team was out, and I went back in, they'd be cheering", he said. It just does not taste as good.

He closed out the interview, promising that the "day of reckoning will come".

"Schnatter confessed without a hint of shame also that he had "over 40 pizzas in the last 30 days and that it's not the same pizza, it's not the same product".

He previously stepped down amid backlash for his criticism of the National Football League over player protests, blaming them for low pizza sales.

He insisted he used the word while quoting another founder of the company to oppose racism. "Stay tuned", he said, smiling. One user wrote, "I wish I had the power of papa john to eat 40 pizzas in 30 days". "The record will be straight".

Once the call became public, Schnatter resigned as chairman of Papa John's and stepped down from the Louisville Board of Trustees. After all, this is the same guy who used a racial slur during a media training call in May 2018 - an event that eventually led to his removal.

John Schnatter hasn't had a formal role with Papa John's in months and has been unloading hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of the company's stock this year.

'Steve Ritchie, Olivia Kirtley, the board of directors all used the black community and race as a way to steal the company.

Ritchie has since left his position as CEO, having been replaced by former Arby's executive Lynch.

Schnatter founded Papa John's in IN in 1984.

He complained to shareholders about it and recommended it was a part of the explanation Papa John's had seen a downturn in gross sales, due to the pizza chain's cope with the NFL. Papa John's later apologized.

John Schnatter, the former CEO of Papa John's, recently sat down with a reporter from WDRB to discuss his departure from the company and its current state.

"He has never been a CEO", Schnatter said. There will be a "DAY OF RECKONING".

'What they've completed is simply flawed, and so they've harm lots of people, ' he continued. He says he isn't trying to take it over at this time.

Schnatter says he "didn't say anything that was racist" and his words were intentionally taken out of context by company insiders who wanted him out. He doesn't really have a passion for quality.
