Subway made a lot of enemies this weekend.
The fast food chain ended its partnership with Joe Gibbs Racing and Daniel Suarez on Saturday, and it’s safe to say the NASCAR community is none too happy about it. On Monday, the company sent out a tweet, which had nothing to do with the Suarez situation, though nearly every reply was related to just that.
Subway’s tweet was promoting one of its sandwiches, but race fans bombarded the company with responses, lambasting it for cutting ties with JGR and Suarez. One person even shares our opinion that Dunkin’ Donuts should sponsor the Mexican driver, and made a rough mockup of the car — emphasis on the word rough.
Another fan used Subway’s own words against it, saying he will no longer eat there “due to circumstances beyond their control.”
As is the case whenever a company gets trolled, some users made pretty “punny” comments. And many of them were regarding Subway’s justification for dropping the Mexican driver.
Amidst the wise cracks, however, there were many tweets that lent support for the 25-year-old and his squad in no uncertain terms.
Even though Suarez is a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series rookie, the NASCAR faithful sure rushed to his defense as if he were a veteran.
