Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.
Pizza Hut is giving moms and dads cultural indigestion.
Word is that the once popular pizza chain is sponsoring a program to incentivize kids in preschool to read books. Now, that’s a noble effort.
But it turns out of the suggested books is called, “Big Wig.” It’s about a child who becomes a drag queen.
Conservatives accuse the Home of the Hut of capitulating to the transgender movement – and many say they will buy their personal pan pizzas some place else.
Over the past few years #pizzahut has had to close hundreds of restaurants. Maybe they should spend more time perfecting their pizza instead of grooming preschoolers to be drag queens? @mschlapp @JackPosobiec @kylenabecker— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) June 3, 2022
Since 2020 more than 500 Pizza Hut locations have been shut down and there’s speculation that they may eliminate all of their dine-in locations.
Some blame the company’s financial failings on the pandemic, or it could be that Pizza Hut no longer caters to a family friendly audience.
What a shame that a company that was founded in the Heartland no longer advocates for Heartland values.
Maybe Pizza Hut should spend less time grooming underage drag queens and more time making a better pepperoni pizza.
