So I commented on their FB page regarding the link in the OP, providing the link as evidence, and they removed it.



Posting evidence here in case they remove my post entirely, lol. The news link used to be the second post.

What are you proving?

How long until this thread get's locked due to irrelevant discussion? All of the other Jared threads were sent into oblivion. And this dude has kids right? Damn shame. May hesuffer the punishment of a thousand burns through his orifices and may his member shrivel into a infectious appendage.

yes, especially for warm subs
but $5 footlongs are a good deal.

Yeah they're not a bad deal.

I remember the days when Subway used to slice the bread out of the middle in a triangle shape and then load up whatever. Now the cut the bread in half and portion everything.

I get their oven roasted chicken breast occasionally as well as the Subway Club.

It's more inaction than anything. His manager got nicked for it, and the company seriously didn't think to go the extra mile and make sure their Goddamn face wasn't in on it? I know I would do an investigation right away.

This at the very least reeks of corporate incompitance, but it could very likely be something worse.

What kind of investigation could they have possibly done by themselves? If anything I imagine their own investigation would have only impeded that of the FBI and other officials. Subway may make bad food but I don't think any reasonable person can blame them for what happened with their spokesperson, at least not until evidence comes out that says otherwise.

Goddamn. I had never heard anything negative about him until fairly recently. Forget 0 to 60 in 6 seconds, this is like 0 to 600 in 6 seconds. Rot in prison Jared and I hope your cell smells like the inside of a Subway.

I'm one of the few people who actually liked Subway... at least when they used to have $5 footlongs

I disagree w/ that, I mean that's a huge sweeping accusation and logical leap based on personal assumption. With that said, I hope this dude gets the same sentence that a broke person would. Enjoy those prison sandwiches, dumbass.

I imagine the FBI would've advised Subway to take a step back and allow the officials to conduct an official, thorough investigation, as any investigative work done by Subway could clash with the official investigation carried out by the FBI. I personally believe Subway have nothing to be blamed for whatsoever. A corporation as big as them simply could not allow something like this to go on without being spotted. Fogle is guilty, not Subway.

Why would we boycott Subway? Did they know he was into kids? And do we have any proof that they supported him in any way? They dropped him as a spokesman almost instantly when the story broke.

It's not like his pedo-ness contaminated the salami or anything...

The kid menu came was announced when Jared was the spokesman. Coincidence?

They hired him in the first place. Why would you frequent a place who hired a pedophile as a spokesperson, or at all for that matter?

...

I'm genuinely confident that many have this mindset.

Pretty gross. Heard a story how he ran a porn video shop out of his dorm room and that's how he started eating subway. He couldn't leave his dorm room for very long and subway was next door.

Jared better hope his plea deal includes some solitary confinement. American convicts hurt convicts who mess with children.

People like to think that, but our prisons are rife with sexual abuse for everyone, including against children in juvenile services. It's pretty goddamn disgusting that people cheer on rape, especially when some of the prisoners getting raped are just kids.

Damn, sad it turned out this way. Don't feel bad for him, but it's always shitty when a "good" person turns out to be a creep.

Never eating at Subway again, and I'm damn sure a lot of people won't either. Their stock and sales are going to take a HUGE hit from this.

Not that I'll miss them, quality-wise they're about a picometer better than Arby's.

What the hell are you on about?

By the way, there are places outside the United States you know. In Australia, Subway is everywhere and this story has been non existent. That's probably because of proximity and relevance. Also, because most people are smart enough to realize that just because some idiot associated with Subway is into child porn, doesn't mean they have anything to do with it. Christ.

His secret kiddy porn stash wouldn't come up in a background check. They hired him something like 15 years ago and only then because he lost so much weight on a subway diet so they ran with it.

They aren't at fault here and it's stupid to think they had any knowledge whatsoever. That's tinfoil hat level shit.

Because their subs are terrible, that's enough reason for me. You could walk into almost any grocery store in America and get a better tasting, more healthy, and cheaper sub then what subway has to offer.

See? Sometimes you can judge a person by their looks alone.

Because Jared Fogle has always just plain old LOOKED like friggin' pedophile. No surprise that he turns out to actually be one.

Wasn't his manager busted first for child porn? I'm curious if like he specifically hired a pedophile as his manager, or one of them introduced the other to it, or it was just random coincidence they both shared the same hobby.
