Subway Jared Fogle scandal, no solution in sight as more evidence emerge
Jared Fogleâ€™s troubles are not going to be over any time soon. Many of his fans thought â€“when his home was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)- that it was merely a mistake and that the man is clean.
But just a month down the line, doubts about him have started creeping in the minds of most of his biggest loyalist. They are the people who believed what hundreds of Subway videos tried to convey that the man was an ultimate family man.
But now more and murkier details are coming forward, further tarnishing his image. The latest revelations have also forced Subway to express its shock over the saga further distancing it from the man who had remained the part of the third largest restaurant chain for more than a decade.
A report in Business Insider claims that former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle in a series of messages boasted that he paid just $100 to a 16-year-old girl for sex. According to the report these text messages have been subpoenaed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In the meantime there are further reports that court documents cite a series of text messages between Fogle and a former female Subway franchisee, Insider reports. Business Insider report says that it “independently verified the authenticity of the affidavitâ€¦We also verified that a phone number in the document was registered to a Jared Fogleâ€.
In the meantime in its most open criticism against a person who was its posterboy till the other day the company in a tweet said, â€œAbout the most recent news story on Jared Fogle, this allegation, if true, is appalling and is contrary to the values of our brand. As previously stated, we have suspended our relationship with Jared.â€ In an emailed statement on Monday Subway added, “We have no record that this alleged complaint was ever brought to our attention. Had it been, we would have taken immediate action.â€
