Papa Johns decides to pull NFL ads as consumer sentiment for league hits low point

Papa Johns pulls NFL ads after receiving “Negative Consumer Sentiment”

There is growing concern among NFL advertisers that the anti-American national anthem protest is affecting their sales.

When a Pizza company pulls out of sponsoring a football league, then you know things are bad.

According to The Gateway Pundit, Papa Johns recently warned the NFL their sales are down this year during NFL games.

On Wednesday Papa Johns told the NFL they were pulling ads from the games.

The consumer sentiment is too negative.

Pizza chain Papa John’s announced Wednesday that it is pulling its advertising associated with the NFL, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

Per Jonathan Maze of Nation’s Restaurant News, Papa John’s founder John Schnatter said sales are down due to “negative consumer sentiment” regarding the company’s relationship with the NFL.

Schnatter also called the NFL “an example of poor leadership,” according to Maze.

A constant topic of discussion during the 2017 NFL season has been players’ decision to protest during the national anthem.
