Though Schnatter resigned as chairman of the board on Wednesday in response to backlash, he still owns 30 percent of the company's stock, according to the New York Times. Not to mention Papa John's still includes his name in the title, so it's pretty clear why many have decided to boycott the pizza chain.

The insults, reevaluation of pizza loyalties, and saucy jokes at the company's expense flooded Twitter after the initial report:

And even though Schnatter and Papa John's have professionally parted ways, many are convinced the former CEO will land on his feet. In fact, some think  he could have a very promising career in politics working for President Donald Trump, who's said and done racist things on many occasions.

And if for some reason you think Papa John's pizza is the most delicious food on the planet and will miss it dearly, have no fear! The recipe is listed below, which means you can make the pies from scratch in the comfort of your own kitchen:

Thankfully, other glorious trash pizza places (we mean "trash" in the best way) still exist in this world, so it's time to choose a new fave.
