@davillain-: You like his pizza?! You must a cast iron stomach.

BTW...Is it just me, or does he look like the garlic sauce that comes with the food is seeping out his pores?

You'll have to excuse me if I don't believe he was a victim in all of this. The easier explanation? He opened his loud mouth and he's surprised that there are consequences to his actions and words.

Ok, I don't have two hours to watch all that. Can someone please summarize his defense for me? Thanks.

@Solaryellow: these articles help sum up the things he said that got him in trouble; from criticizing the way the NFL handled the national anthem protests a few years back, and blaming the league for decreasing sales of his products (he was one of their biggest sponsors at the time), to saying some problematic things during board meetings--including dropping the N-bomb, during one of them. When news broke about it, he stepped down as chairman.

Yeah, I suppose it's one of those things that differs in quality depending on what area you're in.

All these people worrying and supporting him are pathetic. Guy was forced into early retirement, that's about as bad as it got, and received millions. You're all just fretting over his hurt pride and frankly that is a waste of time.

The only thing worse than this whole ordeal is that fact there was an ordeal at all. The guy said something, who cares.

Guy is also a liar, sells people the American Dream like it's as easy as simply putting time and effort into something and you can be a millionaire, and that's a load of shit. "Oh yeah all I did was started selling pizza at my dad's bar and next thing you know I'm a millionaire blah blah blah".

No. Dude, just no.

First off, he lives in a castle. A CASTLE! Except it's not an actual castle like you see in Europe, it's some McCastle kitsch'y thing like you'd expect some nouveau-riche jackass would buy.

Plus it has an underground parking lot where he stores all his super rare and expensive cars.

So no. He is not a decent, down to earth guy. He is a rich 0.01% that doesn't care 0.0000000001% as much about you as you do about him.

*Oh and he has his hands insured for $15 million. Reeeeeeeeeeeally down to earth, that.

I agree with your overall message, but John Schnatter sounds like a really terrible person, a really terrible boss. It sounds like it'd be like working for Richard Nixon or something. Paranoid, power tripping, mercurial, perverted, and generally angry.

@hallenbeck77: Papa John's Pizza has really good tasty bread sticks I like for the most part. Their Pizzas are a take it or leave it, but I mainly go for the bread sticks.

and the butter sauce. Probably their one redeeming quality imo.

Their pizzas are like if a frozen pizza factory just gave you a pizza off the line before it was frozen, like a fresh "frozen" pizza. They always seem so dry.

What does that have to do with this particular guy? People didn't dig up stuff on him, the guy just opened his big fat mouth on a conference call and made it worse from there.

You both sound like some cry babies.

Oh that poor papa! Someone must have made him say n*gger! Maybe if you didn't cry like a little baby people wouldn't call you a cry baby.

@HoolaHoopMan: lol I didn't cry just called out your dumb ass observation. You think he was surprised their were consequences? I didn't even pitty him wtf are you talking about? Jesus christ you lefties are delusional.

"Buh buh he said the N word... make sure we ruin him for the rest of his life because that word hurts my feelings.." lol I'm sorry but you are a triggered baby. I always thought it was hillarious that a single word could steal someone's soul. How pathetic do you have to be to let a word hold that much power over you. It's sad really.
