"Don't Believe the Hype": Chuck E. Cheese Denies Pizza Conspiracy After Shane Dawson Video

Is Chuck E. Cheese feeding kids leftovers?

YouTuber Shane Dawson uploaded a new video on Monday discussing the conspiracy theory that Chuck E. Cheese recycles its pizza slices; i.e., if someone doesn't finish their whole pizza, an employee would allegedly take the remaining slices to reheat and serve to someone else. According to E! News, which I'll trust since I'll never watch one of Shane's videos, "in the video, Shane showed a pizza with different size slices. He also claimed that when he ordered pizza growing up, it looked like a collection of randomly placed slices."

The company addressed the conspiracy in a statement to E! News: "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."

Chuck E. Cheese has been responding to tweets about it, but are still accused of lying.
