Rooster or fish? Jessica Simpson’s response to the Subway tuna debacle is spot on
Subway, the fast food chain synonymous with 5-foot longs, is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. For better or for worse, however, they have an unlikely ally Jessica Simpson.
According to NBC News, Subway is facing a class action lawsuit alleging their tuna is actually not tuna. The lawsuit alleges that, instead of serving real fish, Subway made a “wholly non-tuna-based blend that the defendants blended to resemble tuna and mimic its texture”.
Subway vehemently denied the claim in a statement, partially telling NBC News that it “delivers 100% cooked tuna to its restaurants that is mixed with mayonnaise and used in freshly made sandwiches and wraps.”
The controversial case became a topic of discussion on social media and caught the attention of subway guests like Meghan McCainwho asked the question we all have in mind: “WHAT EXACTLY DID I EAT IN THE SUBWAY!?!?!?”
Jessica Simpson, however, is less concerned about the contents of Subway’s mix as she is known to always struggle with the concept of tuna. She sympathized with the fast food chain on Twitter and wrote, “It’s OK @SUBWAY. It’s confusing.”
