people need to relax and enjoy the interview, i dont get why so many people are hating on him, he is doing what most interviewers don't. its far more interesting and less robotic. And plus who doesn't want to hear about papa's dating life wtf. All the stuff he has discussed is what all humans do. I don't get why its so rude. GROW UP PEOPLE
I need a “Papa Was Framed” shirt
Ethan simultaneity making fun of and praising papa john
Ethan, 1) ask question 2) shut up and listen
Man he came off as genuine and kind here. That ain’t him.
god ethan you are a terrible person outing your dad like that and humiliating papa like that, you're pathetic and entitled.
Ethan stop interrupting! Papa looked like he was about to snap a few times.
Dude, what is going on with Ethan's eyebrows and eyes he is an alien.
This is the final nail in the coffin for me. Will not go back to Papa Johns unless this man is restored to his former glory. Pizza is a source of pure joy in this world and they have used it for evil
@ 1:27:24 he says chinks!
Ethan. What in the world is wrong with you?
I havent watched h3 in about a year, and when i check up on him hes interviewing FUCKING PAPA JOHN! wow what a world we live in
The entire episode I was hoping the last words spoken would be Papa John saying “Papa Bless 🙏”. I was not let down. Papa Bless 🙏
Papa is taking this like a champ, I hope he does well in the future and start another company.
At first, I thought this guy was a racist bigot, particularly because of the media, but I never realized how betrayed he was and in what context he said it. And I think it's honestly stupid how people judge someone's entire being on one single action, and in this case, he just wasn't thinking about what he was saying, he wasn't being racist. I'm sure everyone has said something racist in their lives, and yes, being racist to white people IS racist. We are all flawed people and we can't expect perfection, even from those at the top.
“Closer to a billion than 500 million.” Papa Bless 🙏
DO YOU HEAR GABRIEL'S TRUMPET
everyone: OFFICIALPAPAJohn’s: John Schnatter says “BIG BAD CHINKS” in latest internet podcast!
27:53 bruh Ethan sounds like a fricken interregator
There are 3 sides to every story, and I feel like on Papa’s is being represented here. I have lived in Louisville my whole life, and Papa John’s mansion is only 5 minutes away from me, so I feel like I’m qualified to present a counterpoint. Papa John used to be hugely influential in the local community, his face was on everything. Then, about a year and a half ago, he had a little slip up when commenting on some sensitive political issues. Being the face of the company, this scared the corporate board. Instead of punishing him to severely, they just decided to get him some racial sensitivity training over conference call. Well, the Papa didn’t like that. He reportedly spent the whole call acting like a stubborn brat. Apparently, he kept saying the n-word because he was pissed they were making him take this training. So they fired him and he has become disgraced and hated in the community. I’m honestly surprised it took this long. I have some friends who actually were invited to one of his massive Christmas parties (their brother was friends with his son) and they said he was just flexing how a much money he made on everybody the whole time.
Its sad how even the guy who started the franchise can't even keep his company nowadays. Society has turned to crap. Back in the day when papa John's was awesome versus nowadays. Of course all resturaunts have downgraded burger king is the worst.
Bring back papa john the guy knows pizza. He should start a new pizza chain I would support him.
Damn good segment Ethan, happy you finally got to meet your hero :) Papa Bless
This guy is fan-fuckin-tastic. He knows everyone’s first and last name, he’s engaging, he knows his pizza, smart as a whip. You can tell he really does care about employees and franchisees; they made a horrible decision ousting him.
1:55:30 Papa: Even if you love the car, you don't need to be in the car when the car crashes Camera immediately pans to Hila's face thinking about her shattered vintage car dream
Corporate geniuses: At 1:27:24 he said "chinks in the armor". HE USED A SLUR, HE HATES CHINESE PEOPLE!
No Papa! The reason the company wants to distance itself from you has nothing to do with what you said and everything to do with your motivations. You forgot the reason you got in the game the first place. You became someone who even your wife didn't recognize. I've never cared for Papa's pizza. My 1st love was the good times of Dominos and lately it's Sarpinos with Little Ceasers sprinkled in between. I do like Papa Johns cheese pizza, but their pepperoni (my favorite) is terrible. You became an arse and revealed your true nature when you experienced some speed bumps. You showed us that you are that guy we've all met during rush hour. You can be sure of one thing Papa. Your baby will never be a staple in my household.
I'm new to this channel and I love Ethan and Hila.
Ethan finishes sentences. Not good conversation etiquette. Overall, really good interview. I’m a 100% papa supporter. Such an authentic guy
This man probably low key enjoys cutting people off mid sentence..
Dude you're a bad interviewer, can't read the air at all
41:24 ah yes, escapegoats. My IQ is very high indeed.
You know, i worked for papa johns for two years in store, i hated that fucking place and my fucking boss , they worked us like slaves. But seeing papa john himself in this interview.. Hes not such a bad guy n i say hes innocent.
Ethan is a complete POS !!! Yet I still kinda like him a little bit.
This podcast was so great, one of my favorites! I personally love this style of interview. Keep it up, don't listen to the naysayers.
lol, Hila asks, would you want someone, let's say, that's in the pizza category?
What's papa John's @
papa killed it loved him being him.ethan again being a d bag and eating the pizza he said he hated at the end.
This is amazing
Much respect to papa. He’s very passionate about pizza. Seems like a great guy
Ethan please stop interrupting your guests. -Love Everyone
zzzzzzzzzzzzzz..... Who is the random lady? Congrats. I didn't think it was possible to have a worse co-host than Lee Syatt.
I Love Papa!
Just let him talk. But wow what a patient, gracious dude. Newfound respect.
16:09 why cut him off like that, you say “let’s talk” he WAS talking before you interrupted
11:07 “I didn’t know we’d be talking about this but I’ll take the dating from here”-Papa Ethan “okay got it... sooo what’s your age limit” Definitely didn’t get the hint
hila came through with some of the best questions of the interview
oh ok papa eats pizza all month, while i eat it everyday of my life, doesnt meant i dont other stuff but i legit at least have one slice of pizza everyday and im just crazy, Quality
Hila's shirt is fire
John doesn’t really seem like a bad dude! Glad I watched this. Changed my perception.
Best podcast so far in my opinion
I never had a real clue of who Papa John is or how he is as a person, but damn is he a great guy, character, well-spoken, polite, funny, self-confident and a true man of the people/CEO. H3 Bless!
I believe papa , the story sounds real.
Hila was on fire with those questions.
I heard enough, I want PAPA back damnit!!!
I wish I could eat Pizza with papa so we can discuss the pizza rise.
I've been at a dinner where someone said the n-word a couple times and it's like can I die please thanks.
