Now, the company has the unenviable task of distancing itself from its former spokesman and inspiration for “the Subway diet” campaign.
Business Insider reported late last week that the FBI had subpoenaed text messages between Fogle and a former Subway franchisee. In one of the messages, Fogle reportedly admits to paying for sex with a 16-year-old girl.
Subway responded via Twitter and Facebook to Business Insider’s report.
The latest allegation about Jared Fogle, if true, is appalling. As previously stated, we have suspended our relationship with Jared.
