Man Sacked From Subway Because Of Porn Past

I don't know whether to be shocked at such a stupid action or to be amused at the situation.

Kurt Wild was working in Subway but has been fired because a customer complained that he'd seen the man in a gay porn movie.

So let me get this right. Someone who watches gay porn complained because they did not want to be served a sandwich by someone who has worked in gay porn in the past??? Is this not ironic to anyone else? Seems the franchise owner is upset at the prospect of losing a gay porn watching customer more than he is upset about unfairly firing someone who had previously worked in gay porn. What's worse? Taking money out of the industry or funding it? I suspect the franchise owner might just have been a bit of a homophobe and the customer a bit of a "man who has sex with men". If you know what I mean...

I so want to see an interview with the complainer, just to see what on Earth their problem was. Were they worried they might get a little extra with their sandwich??? Come on guys, it's the 21st Century. We should not be getting upset about people being naked and having sex. It's a pretty sad indictment of the current state of "freedom" in America. Trust me if he was worried about being served by a gay porn star he should stop being a consumer... because I bet a hell of a lot of staff in all sorts of industries have done far worse things with their significant others in their own bedroom. Think about that next time you're checking out at a store... or buying a sandwich at Subway.

P.S. I found this rather amusing complaint about Subway. This man thinks they cheat each customer out of 2 inchs of bread... I can imagine the CEO of Subway sitting on a throne above a pile of leftover bread laughing crazily. This is why I don't work in customer service any more... customers are so dumb.

Freedom has left the building...

Yup, I too would like to know the basis of the customer's objection! And I hope the gay porn guy files & wins a wrongful termination suit (and I don't usually support all that suing at the drop of a hat attitude!)

Did he order a 6" or foot-long?
