Nationwide Franchise May Dump Activist Olympic Athlete After Stunt
USA women’s soccer player and woke activists athlete Megan Rapinoe antics have finally caught up with her. According to a New York Post report, Subway franchisees want the company to give her the boot.
From the New York Post:
The 36-year-old, purple-haired soccer star — who kneeled during the National Anthem to kick off the Tokyo Olympics before leading the United States to a bronze medal this week — began a stint as a pitchwoman for the fast-food giant this spring. In one spot, Rapinoe — who has been a vocal proponent of equal rights and equal pay for women — knocks a burrito out of a guy’s hands by kicking a soccer ball at him.
At first the response was mixed however, now owners are worried about a boycott. A Wisconsin store operator recently shared a photo of a note a customer taped to his door and now they are nervous.
“Boycott Subway until Subway fires the anti-American … Megan Rapinoe, the creep who kneels for our beloved National Anthem!” the note reportedly said.
“The ad should be pulled and done with,” the franchisee noted regarding the Rapinoe spot, adding, “It gets tiring apologizing.”
Owners are worried that corporate is going to sink their investments. A West Coast franchisee told the New York Post they want the below pulled and want the company to focus on the mom and pop owners.
“Spending our money to make a political statement is completely and totally out of bounds,” one Arizona franchisee reportedly wrote on the NAASF blog.
Subway owners know if you go woke you go broke. Store operators are very worried about boycotts that have hurt the NFL, the NBA, Coca-Cola, and Ben and Jerry’s.
The thirty six year old soccer player angered Americans after after she kneeled during the National Anthem to kick off the Tokyo Olympic games.
