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. Well…it did and now the dun is runnin’ for the hills as he announces on Thursday that he’s steppin’ down as CEO but will remain on as the Chairman of the Board.
Just in case you’ve been livin’ under a rock the dun jumped out of the birthday cake butt naked foamin’ at the mouth talkin’ reckless about the NFL protests last month 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.
What killed him was usin’ the term “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.
Once he dove out of the window with that foolishness he started attractin’ boyz that he didn’t want in the ride with him or at least publicly anyway. A white supremacist website called “The Daily Stormer” posted an article askin’ if Papa Johns was the “official pizza of the alt-right.” That pretty much killed any opportunity of gettin’ the business back on track.
Two weeks later the company tried to clean up the foolishness because bread was bread and they were losin’ loads of it. They even went to twitter to try to apologize to folks but it was too little too late. In my G.I. ghetto old school vernacular, “Ain’t nobody messin’ with Papa Johns no more!” It’s a wrap playboy!!
There are too many cats sellin’ pizza to buy one from a cat that openly tells people that he cares nothin’ about them or their plight as African Americans in this country. Steppin’ down as CEO isn’t goin’ to help the business because he’s still the Chairman and as long as he’s affiliated with the brand it’s poison. It is what it is. Stop me when I start lyin’!

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!”
