Papa John's founder John Schnatter giving a weird interview

“I’ve Had Over 40 Pizzas In 30 Days”—Ousted Papa John Slams Pizza Chain In Bizarre, Sweaty Interview

Papa John may have gone off the deep end after he was forced to resign by his board of directors in July 2018 and the internet can’t stop talking about it. For some reason, he sat down with a Kentucky news affiliate and admitted to eating 40 pizzas in 30 days, claiming they’re not the same as they used to be (maybe they’re good now?) and issuing a vague and ominous prediction for the future.

He also managed to blame black people for his being fired from pizza for being racist.

“Steve Ritchie, Olivia Kirtley, the board of directors all used the black community and race as a way to steal the company,” John Schnatter said. “They stole the company, and now they’ve destroyed the company.”

He also said that some of the board members who fired him should be in jail, and then things got really weird. “Stay tuned. The day of reckoning will come,” he said. “The record will be straight.”

“Why not set the record straight now?” asked WDRB’s Stephan Johnson. “I mean, what is it about the record that’s not straight?”

That was the moment in which Schnatter decided to give the camera a slow-sprouting little smirk and the deep, quiet chuckle of a James Bond villain, repeating his initial suggestion as the lights glimmered off of his pizza sweats and strangely wet-looking hair.

“Stay tuned.”

So now everyone has one question. Is the Papa John’s guy okay?

This is definitely going to be the weirdest thing to happen all week until you hear about the latest conspiracy theory from your relatives on Thanksgiving.
