Wonkette Vs. Papa John’s

by Daniel Foster

This has been developing all day, but here’s the state of play: Wonkette posted a tasteless piece this morning making light of Trig Palin’s developmental disabilities and accusing Sarah Palin of using the toddler as a “political prop.”

An industrious Tweeter noticed an ad for Papa John’s pizza appearing alongside the post, and pointed this out to the company’s PR team. Papa Johns in turn said they had “taken steps to make sure our advertising doesn’t appear on that site in the future.”

Wonkette’s response to the Papa John’s move has been . . . well, not especially conciliatory:

I’ve reached out to both Papa John’s and Ken Layne, editor at Wonkette, for comment on the situation and will report if/when I hear back.
