Subway Gets Blowback From Megan Rapinoe Ads

Corporations have gone all-in for ultraleft politics. This has entailed not only shoveling mountains of money at Marxist rioters and relentlessly pushing woke social engineering through commercials, but also choosing conspicuously vile anti-Americans as the faces of their products. Nike may get away with it with Colin Kaepernick. That doesn’t mean Subway will with Megan Rapinoe.

Not all franchisees are overjoyed to see Rapinoe in commercials for the chain, behaving with characteristic obnoxiousness by kicking a ball so that it knocks a burrito out of a Hispanic-looking guy’s hand while he’s trying to eat it.

From the New York Post:

Late last month on a discussion forum hosted by the North American Association of Subway Franchisees, a Wisconsin store operator posted a picture of a hand-scrawled note from an irate customer taped to the front door of his shop. …

“The ad should be pulled and done with,” the franchisee wrote of the Rapinoe spot. “It gets tiring apologizing.”

The note likely speaks for many former customers:

The consensus of the ruling class is that only moonbats matter. However, outside of the media propaganda bubble, moonbattery is widely regarded with the contempt and revulsion it deserves, especially in red states.

“Spending our money to make a political statement is completely and totally out of bounds,” an Arizona franchisee said on the NAASF blog about the corporate parent.

Franchisees own their stores, but have to kick in a percentage of revenue, which pays for advertising.

Another Midwest-based franchisee said Subway should have seen this coming before signing Rapinoe. In July 2019, she took heat for allegedly stomping on the American flag. Weeks earlier, she created headlines when she said she was not going to the “f**king White House” if invited to visit President Trump.

Apart from politics, there is Rapinoe’s personality, which is unappealing even by moonbat standards:

Nonetheless, woke corporate decisionmakers pay this horrid woman to alienate their customers:

Rapinoe this year has inked other endorsement deals besides Subway, including a tie-up with Victoria’s Secret in June.

It is doubtful that the far from pulchritudinous Rapinoe modeling skimpy underwear would appeal even to her fellow lesbians. As always in advertising, pushing moonbattery comes first, selling the product afterward. Nothing else could explain plunging from Adriana Lima to Megan Rapinoe.
