Papa John’s Lawsuit Counterbalanced By ‘Papa John’s Appreciation Day’ On Facebook To Show Support

papa johns lawsuit appreciation day

The Papa John’s lawsuit making news this week has brought the chain’s name into the news in an unpleasant way, negatively affecting stock after a $250 million class-action lawsuit was filed against the company — but not everyone is mad at the pizza giant right now, as evidenced by the National Papa John’s Appreciation Day Page on Facebook.

The Papa John’s lawsuit stems from annoyance with which we can all relate — the habit of some companies to automatically subscribe you to their lists after you do business with them, pelting you with unwanted texts, emails and other communications when you provide them with the contact information necessary to complete your order. And often it seems no volume nor permutation of “please, for the love of Horus, stop sending me texts I have to pay to receive” can make the messages stop, as if you are trapped in the least climactic horror movie of all time.

But complainants in the Papa John’s lawsuit say that the company even woke some pizza-eaters in the middle of the night with intrusive texts, and the case has potential to curb other companies from engaging in the same annoying technostalking shenanigans, should the company be found at fault.

The Papa John’s lawsuit isn’t the only challenge facing Papa John’s and CEO John Schnatter right now — detractors have also slammed the CEO and his brand for vocal threats to make life harder for workers in protest of Obamacare.

And much like with Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, conservative supporters are rallying behind the brand after a one-two punch this week, staging a reverse boycott to negate the effects.

The National Papa John’s Appreciation Day currently has 15,000+ confirmed attendees on Facebook, and reads:

“The CEO of Papa John’s, John H. Schnatter, has said that he will have to cut employee hours because of Obamacare. Schattner has received intense media scrutiny in addition to being demonized as an evil rich guy by the Left. Obamacare is a fiscal nightmare and because of it, many small businesses aren’t hiring now. Some are even closing their doors. Obamacare is now, as John Boehner said, ‘the law of the land.'”

The page continues:

“In solidarity with John H. Schnatter, we propose that November, 16th, 2012 be National Papa John’s Appreciation Day. The Left thinks we are discouraged; they think they have won. Let’s send a clear message this Friday, like we did on Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, that we are here to stay and that we won’t stop fighting. There are over 2,600 Papa John’s stores in the United States. Let’s flood all of them like we flooded Chick-Fil-A.”

Do you think between the Papa John’s lawsuit and the threatened boycott the chain deserves some love, or did Schnatter bring the latter upon himself by making a political stand on the quality of life of his employees?

    Okay, except that John Schnatter did NOT say that. Get the facts, come back, try again.

    as is always the case with those on the left who have no clue about basic economics……….if only people were more concerned with teaching economics in school rather than things like how to fit condoms on cucumbers we might not have this problem.

    why didn't they cover the anti-Papa John's Page on FB as well? There is one calling for supporting your local pizzeria, and not a chain. Eat a pizza on 11/16, but just not a Papa John's one.

    That's what happens when you forget that your workers are human beings and not just overpaid slaves. I hope Papa Dong's crumbles to the ground, I mean you can't exist with half your customers gone and the other half are eating spit pie. Those self righteous piece of shit right wing cocksuckin bastards that are still ordering from Papa Dong's can suck my dick and chew my spit. Yeah I work for Papa Dong's and I can assure you that John Smeckler is a greedy castle owning shitfucktard that if given the chance he'd bring back slavery and lock us all up in cages in the back room.

    Thats why the right wing has consistently destroyed our economy over the past 100 years whenever they are in office. That's why they also have held every job bill down, including the "lets stop rewarding companies for outsourcing jobs when we need every single one we got here" bill that the re-pube-lickers refused to pass because they demanded first that we extend bush tax cuts on the wealthiest 2% of americans…. lets add the "give veterans jobs" act that they unpatriotically smashed down for the same reason, you know because the re-pube-lickers that sent our young boys and girls to fight for middle east oil so haliburton (good ole' dick's company) could grab up 100% of oil contracts in afganistan don't deserve help now because they are either incapable or unwilling to sacrifice their lives for more oil??? The cause of the 2 greatest economic recessions in modern history have been re-pube-lickers fault, true story. Fed reserve= Pube lickers, yeah the list goes on for days, personally we need to hang these right wing traitors and their retarded, redneck, uneducated pile of shiitehole callous karl rove's red rocket jockeying chode licker constituents. get the fuck outta here, tardwhore. Fuck papa johns and fuck these right wing traitors, abraham lincoln would be ashamed to be considered republican if he knew how deplorable the party would get morally.
