Could a popular place for kids be holding a dark secret that has the potential to make parents keep their children away? In Shane Dawson’s most recent YouTube video, he explores the decade old conspiracy theory that Chuck E. Cheese “recycles” its pizza by taking leftovers and reserving it to customers.

“After watching Shane’s video I was so surprised. I never expected Chuck E. Cheese to be doing this but I really believe they are,” said sophomore Abbi Manos.

As more people look into this phenomenon, they realize that the edges of the pizza almost never line up, the cuts made into a pizza do not go all the way across, and toppings such as pepperonis do not line up from slice to slice.

“I work at Chuck E. Cheese and we hand toss the dough so it doesn’t really line up perfectly, I honestly just believe the entire thing was used for views,” said sophomore Gavynn Grant.

Chuck E. Cheese claims that their pizzas are made with fresh dough and quality ingredients every single day. They include the word “fresh” throughout their restaurant, website, and social media constantly in order to accentuate on the fact that they make their pizza when ordered with the best ingredients. However, after seeing the evidence in the pizzas no one is believing those statements.

“Chuck E. Cheese is definitely lying about their pizzas being fresh, it’s pretty obvious that they recycle their pizzas. There are plenty of videos showing people ordering a pizza and having the slices be completely different sizes. It’s pretty clear it’s all a lie and if they wanted people to think their pizza is fresh they could at least try to fix the appearance of their pizza,” said junior Connor Beaule.

Currently, Chuck E. Cheese has only responded to Shane’s video in a statement to E! News that said, “The claims made in this video about Chuck E. Cheese’s and our pizza are unequivocally false. 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.” Although they made this statement, the company has not taken any legal action regardless to how potentially damaging this can end up for their company.

“Honestly I don’t think they should take any legal action because it is just a conspiracy theory about their pizza. None of it is proven so all they can really do is just be mad about it and try to convince people their pizza is actually fresh,” said junior Donavon Springle.

After all, this is one of the many conspiracy theories out on the web and may not even be true. Even so, what do you think?
