In recent news, the NFL has been protesting standing during the National Anthem due to hidden negative racial sentiments in the country. Great amounts of controversial views brewed immediately afterwards, including pizza restaurants.

Papa John’s states that, “the combination of declining the NFL viewership and negative consumer sentiment associated with the league caused its sales to slump.”

The main reasoning for this conclusion is due to a failure of reaching their expected percent rise of 1.4 percent. The company only reached 1 percent and claims it was going to remain that way for their next quarter.

After the public heard about the reasoning for the lackluster sales from Papa John’s, Pizza Hut chimed in with their own remarks stating, “We’re not seeing any impact from any of that on our business.”

This statement is humorous and also very truthful. In April 2018 Pizza Hut is receiving a $130 million investment for major upgrades and marketing spending.

Many people found this interaction amusing and worth their time reading. Comment how you feel about Papa John’s recent remarks along with your favorite pizza toppings.
