Pizza Hut Pulls 'Free Pizza for Life' Contest Out of Tonight's Presidential Debate

| by Michael Allen

Last week, Pizza Hut offered free pizza for life to anyone at tonight’s town hall presidential debate who dared to ask President Obama and Mitt Romney if they like sausage or pepperoni pizza.

Pizza Hut's contest turned into a PR nightmare, with critics accusing the pizza giant of ruining the debate, reports Mediaite.com.

Pizza Hut’s chief marketing officer Kurt Kane said: "Some of the attention we received was not positive… So, we decided the question was better served online than in the debate itself."

Instead of encouraging town hall participants to ask the question to Obama or Romney, Pizza Hut wants people to vote online for the sausage or pepperoni question. A random winner will receive free pizza for life.
