Papa John’s founder John Schnatter is once again under heat for flaunting his wealth in a series of TikTok videos.
Schnatter has faced a long string of scandals, including the infamous 2018 incident when he used a racial slur during a video call and ended up being ousted from the company. Now, the pizza maven is being criticized for showing off his assets online during this unsettling period.
In one clip, Schnatter was seen heading to his personal helicopter in slow motion as Notorious B.I.G’s Big Poppa played in the background. Another post displayed Schnatter’s collection of vintage cars.
He also did a little home tour of his mansion, which he dubbed as “The Papa Castle.” The properly tops the most expensive home in Louisville at US$11 million, according to People.
Naturally, many internet users were not pleased with Papa John’s “tone-deaf” behavior, especially during the coronavirus pandemic. One TikTok user commented, “People of the world trying to survive and this man is showing off,” while another mocked, “Money doesn’t buy taste.”
In an earlier post, Schnatter announced that he will be giving US$1 million to COVID-19 relief efforts via givebackwithpapa.com.
