Former Papa John’s CEO Doesn’t like Their Pizza Anymore

This is the last person on the face of the planet you’d expect to get sick of pizza — but apparently there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Who would’ve thought?!

Well, John Schnatter, the former CEO of Papa John’s, recently did an interview with WDRB to discuss his departure from the company and its current state.

During the sit down, Schnatter made a shocking proclamation.

“I’ve had over 40 pizzas in the last 30 days,” he told WDRB’s Stephan Johnson. To put that quote in context, Schnatter was discussing the current state of Papa John’s pizza, which he says is not as good as when he was in charge.

“The way they’re making the pizza is just not fundamental to what makes a Papa John’s pizza,” he continued.

Schnatter discussed his ousting from the company after a recording of him saying a racial slur surfaced. He says that he only said the word during a training call for diversity training and used it to convey his hatred of racism.

In response, many Twitter users, meanwhile, rushed to share their thoughts on the amount of pizza Schnatter claims to have eaten in the last month.

One user wrote, “Papa John looks like he’s only being kept alive by a tube funneling garlic sauce into his pepperoni heart.”

Others, however, seemed impressed with the accomplishment. One user wrote, “I wish I had the power of papa john to eat 40 pizzas in 30 days.”

Some even seemed amused by it, with one social media user posting, “I have an image of papa John just randomly showing up to local Papa John’s to get his 40 pizzas.”
