Hey, remember Megan Rapinoe? You know, the emaciated guy from the U.S. women’s – wait, that’s a woman? – soccer team who always colored his, er, “her” hair purple or pink? Apparently, a large amount of people despise this horrible, anti-American twat, which is why Subway is hemorrhaging customers.
The Subway fast-food chain has been struggling — even before the coronavirus — but many franchise owners also felt that hiring U.S. soccer star and national anthem protester Megan Rapinoe as a national spokesperson was no help at all.
According to a report in the New York Post, Subway lost 1,043 outlets in 2021, which was more than the new outlets they opened. So, what is going wrong? Well, some franchise owners feel that hiring Megan Rapinoe was just one of the contributing factors to Subway’s mounting woes.
Gee, you think? He’s a foul-mouthed piece of detritus who danced on the American flag when he won games. Oh sorry, “she.” Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Indeed, the struggling fast-food company was met with an organized boycott by customers who were upset that Subway would choose to laud a woman who attended an Olympics on foreign soil only to protest against the country that made her rich.
Some franchise owners were furious that Subway chose such a radical and controversial political figure to push their product.
This may be the perfect example of the “Get Woke, Go Broke” truism. Subway hitched their wagon to this dude after the U.S. Women’s soccer team started winning games, despite the fact there were a few normal, popular players they could have chosen. But no, Subway wanted a leftist, and that leftist had to be obnoxiously radical.
So, after seeing Rapinoe’s anti-American actions on and off the field, Americans decided they didn’t want to embrace this dude’s f**k America platform. They stopped watching this dude’s soccer games, and stopped patronizing her sponsors. Hence, the collapse of Subway.
Look, I get why advertisers place sports stars on commercials, but none of these people realize said sports star has to be above reproach. No one wants to watch commercials featuring Megan Rapinoe, LeBron James, or Ray Rice.
If you want someone to really carry your brand on their shoulders, stop looking at LeBron James, and start looking at Tim Tebow, Wayne Gretzky or almost any race car driver.
