Shane Dawson Versus Chuck E. Cheese

Many people are having second thoughts about the pizza from a certain establishment after a conspiracy theory went viral.

On February 11, 2019, Shane Dawson released the second part of his new two-part series of popular conspiracy theories on YouTube. One of the theories talked about whether Chuck E. Cheese serves reused leftover pizza to customers. Following Dawson’s upload, which now has over 23 million views, a Chuck E. Cheese spokesperson spoke up and talked to “The Verge.” The business also put out many tweets saying that the claims made by Dawson are untrue.

“The claims made in this video about Chuck E. Cheese and our pizza are unequivocally false,” the spokesperson said. “No conspiracies here—our pizzas are made to order and we prepare our dough fresh in restaurant, which means that they’re not always perfectly uniform in shape, but always delicious.”

Dawson’s theory argues the idea that because the slice cuts don’t measure up and many of the slices are oddly shaped, the pizza is made of a bunch of different pizzas. Dawson states that there’s a possibility Chuck E. Cheese employees bring uneaten pizza back into the kitchen, combine it with other pizzas and use extra cheese as a way to glue it all together. Dawson’s main goal was not to come after the company, but after their pizza. He mentions that a former friend from high school used to work at Chuck E. Cheese and states that she said the theory is true, but he also says she could be lying.

“I think the theory is true,” sophomore Jocelyn Cabuyado said. “It grosses me out because the thought of eating pizza other people touched is not okay.”

Even though this theory is said to be wrong, it has changed a lot of people’s opinions on the establishment.

“If I were to ever go to Chuck E. Cheese, I’d want to see for myself if the pizza was actually reused,” junior Magdalena Szaflik said. “I wouldn’t want to judge the business because of what someone else said.”

This situation has given many people something to think about when they go to Chuck E. Cheese or any other similar establishment, which may be good or bad for the future of these companies.
