The biggest joke of all is that Pizza Hut’s latest TV commercial features a black family and some have noticed that since this incident happened they have been airing the commercial a lot more often now. hahahahahahahaha!
*shaking my head*
How much are you all willing to bet that those footballers have already returned to the same Pizza Hut for a meal since receiving an “apology”?
