Papa John's fights neo-Nazi backlash with middle-finger emoji

Papa John's CEO apologies for comments on NFL anthem protest controversy

"That was definitely not our intention", Papa John's tweeted. "The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country". "The NFL has hurt Papa John's shareholders".

"The NFL has hurt us", Schnatter said then.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, the company apologized to anyone who found the comments "divisive". "Except neo-nazis", the company tweeted, offering a "middle finger" emoji to "those guys". Open to ideas from all.

Curtis Samuel to miss rest of season
McCaffrey, the former Stanford star, leads the team in receptions with 57 for 433 yards and three touchdowns. Russell Shepard would likely replace Samuel if he is sidelined.

That last sentence is in reference to a supremacist website saying the company is the official pizza of the alt-right after Schnatter made his comments. The controversy kicked off after San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem previous year, inspiring other players to engage in similar forms of protest to recognize racial inequality and police brutality.

Schnatter previously blamed commissioner Roger Goodell for allowing the anthem protests to continue rather than take a harsher stance against the demonstrations. The pizza chain said that while it believes Americans "should honor the anthem", it supports "the players' movement to create a new platform for change".

Despite the pizza chain's efforts Tuesday to address the criticism over those remarks, some social media users weren't convinced.

RNC cuts ties with Roy Moore's fundraising agreement
Is the burden [of proof] on Moore to prove these [allegations] false, versus someone to prove these are true in this situation? According to a Federal Election Commission the GOP establishment continues to break ties with the Alabama Senate candidate.

He said that he expected the earnings decline for Papa John's "to persist" until "a solution is put in place" by the National Football League for its player protests. "I don't see an apology for that".

The apology came two weeks after Schnatter, during an earnings call for the company, expressed disappointment about the league's ongoing player protests during the national anthem.

Papa John's replied to some of the responses, acknowledging that it "should have acted sooner" following Schnatter's comments.
