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.

Old drugs, new tricks: Rejuvenating existing antibiotics to combat AMR
Consumers are also driving the demand for meat raised without routine use of antibiotics, with some major food chains adopting "antibiotic-free" policies for their meat supplies.

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.

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.
