The Onion Makes Intentionally Offensive 9/11 Subway Ad, Subway Is Offended

Subway didn’t find Subtember 11th funny.

1. The Onion, a satirical site that is no stranger to controversy and pushing the boundaries of taste with its jokes, created a story based on this fake Subway ad.

2. From The Onion:

Citing a wide range of deals customers will “never forget,” fast food chain Subway announced an exciting new promotion this week to honor and commemorate Subtember 11. “With a number of terrific discounts on special sandwiches as well as our classic footlongs, you’ll always remember where you were on Subtember 11.”

3. Subway was less than enthused.
