I'm personally counting down the hours until Subway is called out for supporting the "racist, Alt-Right" comedian Sam Hyde of the, now canceled, Million Dollar Extreme: World Peace. World Peace was canceled from the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block after Buzzfeed and others accused Sam Hyde of being an Alt-Right provocateur of sorts. It seems that whoever is behind the Subway chain's official social media is a fan of Hyde.

What I find most interesting is that the reference in question corresponds to a YouTube Sam made long before Adult Swim ever signed him on.

<a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/milliondollarextreme/comments/7zvjf4/subway_official_fast_food_chain_of_the_altright/">Members of the Million Dollar Extreme subreddit</a> are already placing bets on whether the social media manager (or intern) will be fired and whether or not said professional Twitterer is in their midst in the thread where they announce Subway as the "official fast food chain of the Alt-Right."
Already there are people swearing off of Subway sandwiches as a result, Reddit user magna_carta had the following to say:
<quote>I'm never eating those delicious Nazi sandwiches again. I bet Hitler himself runs that PR company. A bunch of Russian bots behind the counters making those turkey subs, feeding us alt-light propaganda.</quote>
One Reddit user points out that Buzzfeed's "Viewtiful Joe" Bernstein should be informed, "someone gets Bernstein on the line, this is a viral news story in the making. SHORT. $SUBWAY. NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Bernstein has tirelessly worked to expose Sam for his nefarious plot to corrupt the youth via humor and subversively introduce Nazi ideology in the guise of absurdist humor.

On the one hand, compared to Jared Fogle who used a charity he ran as a means to create and procure child pornography, I guess you could say Subway could do worse seeing as they already have.
