12.21.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Papa John Schnatter

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on

Name: Papa John Schnatter
Age: 56
Occupation: founder of a fake pizza chain
Last Seen: Jeffersonville, KY
Bee-otched For: backing down 

Not long ago, we bitchslapped Papa John Schnatter for making stupid comments in regards to NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem. He claims that his chain - the official sponsor of the NFL - has witnessed sales sagging worse than mozzarella since many have been tuning out the NFL for this fact.

Now, Schnatter's comments have caused him to take a step back.

Papa John has announced that he's stepping down as the company's CEO next month in response to his vulgar comments. The company's current COO, Steve Ritchie will take Schnatter's position while Schnatter remains Chairman of the Board. He's the company's biggest shareholder.

Despite the chain apologizing for Schnatter's remarks, company stock is down 13% and 30% since the beginning of the year. Schnatter is known for his ultra-conservative views, cutting pay to his workers and putting the blame on Obamacare and the fact that he's a major supporter to the Tea Party.

He is worth $800 million.

You know, Papa John is a fucking wealthy prick who got rich because his daddy owned a bar and he used its utility room to put in an oven. He never knew what it was like to be black. He doesn't know what it's like to be arrested or pulled over because that person is of color. Fuck, here in Grand Rapids, there was an 11-year-old girl - who wanted to be a cop when she grew up - who was arrested at her house last week. Why? BECAUSE SHE WAS FUCKING BLACK. Sadly, the cops who arrested her won't be reprehended for what they did, though the NAACP has been representing the girl.

Now, I've been hearing about the Carolina Panthers being up for sale because owner Jerry Richardson admitted to being a racist and sexually misusing women. I've heard that Jay-Z and other rappers are interested in buying the team and even hiring Colin Kaepernick as the QB. Hell, the Cleveland Browns - in their 0-14 glory - could be a perfect fit for him.

The thing is, when a black man says something, he should be heard. This is one big reason why I don't do business with Papa John's. Hell, even though he stepping down as CEO, he still owns most of the company and it doesn't mean much. Thanks, but I like Jet's better.

Life is short, eat better pizza. Sauce and string cheese on cardboard don't count.
