Papa Johns tryin’ to save the “Gas Face” but too little too late playa! “Ouch”

"You don't think so dawg?"

Marcus Aurelius, the ancient Roman Emperor, once said, “Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” Zig Ziglar, the sales guru, broke it down like this, “Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” Then Bill Gates put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.”

Well playas…ole dull John Schnatter, founder and CEO of Papa Johns Pizza, allowed success to fool him into believin’ that he could say whatever he wanted to say to folks and it wasn’t goin’ to nose dive his business. A couple of weeks ago the dun jumped out of the birthday cake butt naked foamin’ at the mouth talkin’ reckless about the NFL protests and how it was hurtin’ his business. Let me refresh your memory.

He said, “The NFL has hurt us. We are disappointed the NFL and its leadership did not resolve this.” He didn’t stop there bruh. He went on to say, “Leadership starts at the top, and this is an example of poor leadership.” Ole boy said that he thought the issue had been “nipped in the bud” a year and a half ago.

C’mon playa “nipped in the bud?” The use of that type of language was equivalent to spittin’ in a boy’z face and he lost $70 million in one day. Shares hit the floor after his comments and rightfully so.

Now two weeks later the company is tryin’ to clean this foolishness up because bread is bread and there’s no gettin’ what’s already been lost, back.  Tuesday they went to Twitter with this foolishness:

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! There’s no such thing as bein’ too rich playa and there’s no such thing as bein’ invincible. John Schnatter thought that he could turn his nose up at black folks, demand that the NFL put the players in their place and keep it movin’.

To make the statements that he made was utterly disrespectful to the people that are sufferin’ from police brutality, racial and social injustice. Y’all do remember that’s why boyz are protestin’ in the first place. Knuckleheads have tryin’ to change the narrative to the flag and military and it has nothin’ to do with that. Like those same players don’t have military service people in their families. Stop with that foolishness.

And guess what playa? They eat a ton of pizza. Problem is, they’ve got options and Papa Johns isn’t the only dun sellin’ it.

I drove past several Papa Johns restaurants last week and they were all empty at lunch time durnin’ the work week. And guess what playa? I kept it movin’ too. If you don’t care about the people that supported you then they will no longer support you. Now you’ve got the “Gas Face” like 3rd Base once said. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Spit: verb – to say

2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.

4) Gas Face: noun: song by the rap group 3rd Base about boyz lookin’ stupid after doin’ something stupid.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
