Papa Johns Joins Tucker Carlson Ad Boycott, Conservatives Stand by Tucker

Papa Johns has joined the Tucker Carlson ad boycott that already includes Disney and T-Mobile.

Per the NY Times:

Papa John’s, a pizza chain that was the center of an uproar in 2018 over a racial slur used by its founder, also backed away from Carlson. The company said that Havas, its media agency, placed a general buy for ad space across several cable news networks and left the positioning of the spots up to the networks.

Papa John’s began advertising on cable only after the pandemic began, as live sports and other content disappeared. It has run ads on “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC and “CNN Tonight With Don Lemon.”

After Carlson’s comments, Papa John’s said in a statement that it would stop spending on opinion shows, noting that “placement of advertising is not intended to be an endorsement of any specific programming or commentary.”

Steven Tristan Young, chief marketing officer of Poshmark, said in a statement Thursday that the e-commerce company stopped advertising on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on June 2.

“We do not agree with the comments he made on his show and stand in solidarity with those who seek to advance racial justice and equality,” Young said.

Meanwhile, several conservatives stood up for Tucker Carlson on Twitter using the hashtag

This was the particular segment that caused controversy.

“This may be a lot of things, this moment we’re living through, but it is definitely not about Black lives,” Carlson said Monday“And remember that when they come for you — and at this rate, they will.”

 

 

Here were some of the many conservatives standing with Tucker on social media.

Tucker essentially proves the Papa Johns slogan every night.

Better ingredients, Better Television.

NEVER bow to the mob. @TuckerCarlson never does.

That’s why

because he tells it like it is. They keep attempting to have his show cancelled or have sponsors abandon him because he kicks their asses in the ratings every night and they have no other way to defeat him.

because far too many “conservatives” myopically focus on economics, letting the Left dominate and devastate our culture.

Not Tucker.

America is more than a GDP.

Retweet if you do too.
