Papa John has fallen.
John Schnatter, aka Papa John, aka Great AllFather John, aka Pepperoni Paterfamilias, has been brought low by a racial slur and graphic descriptions of violence against minorities during a conference call. In his resignation he has sloppily slid away from his pizza empire, like cheese from an ill-baked slice, leaving only the failure-doused crust of what had once been.
Schnatter and his corporation have had a long and storied history of pointless antagonism
, horrific racism
, consistently terrible politics
, and not paying delivery drivers minimum wage
Today we mourn our Pizza Patriarch and wait for some other asshole to claim the crown.
