Social Media Era: Subway Store Cans “Creator” For Stomping On Food, Filming It

The stupid burns brightly, and this is just so emblematic of the social media era

Subway says a worker who filmed himself stamping on sandwich fillings and placing them on a toilet seat has been fired

A Subway franchise worker who filmed himself trashing one of the sandwich chain’s locations in Providence, Rhode Island, has been fired, according to reports.

In a statement to Newsweek, a spokesperson for Subway confirmed that the man was an employee at one of its franchises and said he was sacked when the videos surfaced.

The man, who goes by the name Jumanne Way, posted a series of YouTube videos, including one uploaded on Friday.

In one clip, he shows himself deliberately stepping on sandwich fillings placed in silver tubs and decorating a toilet seat with deli meats. He then treads on every tub before putting them back on the counter.

Other actions include dumping salad ingredients, including lettuce, tomatoes, and peppers on the bathroom floor and toilet. He also threw trays of bread on the floor and stamped on them.

And, now Way has made himself virtually unhireable. Oh, but, wait, it gets worse

In an interview with the Daily Mail, he said: “Unfortunately, I’m a content creator, so I create controversial videos to be able to potentially monetize my audience on YouTube and other social media platforms.”

He added that he was worried about being convicted of a crime but noted that it was “a decision I made over time.”

A “content creator.” Really? Filming yourself trashing food at work is “content”? It doesn’t say much about your “content” if you’re working at Subway. This is the pure stupidity of today’s social media, with “content creators”, ie, people making videos with their smartphones and thinking they’re Influencers, another really stupid thing. And, being a “content creator”, what business will want to take a chance on Way, consider that he could do the same or worse at their business? That Daily Mail piece explains Way was also drinking from bottles and putting them back. He was apparently just trying to “draw attention to his films and music.”

He’ll have plenty of time to work on those films and music now.

However, he said that he’s ‘still in the beginning stage’ of chasing clout and couldn’t comment on whether he had gotten the response he was hoping for.

Everything is just stupid. You’d think this would provide a cautionary tale for other “content creators”, ie, people with smartphones, but, stuff like this keeps happening. People keep filming themselves doing really dumb things. Things that can make themselves unhireable.

    He was fired? How about; he was arrested and charged with attempted murder, or at least tampering with food? This piece of shit needs to be sitting prison for a long time as a warning to other “influencers” that this is not tolerated.

    • That could still come, but the prosecution would have to prove that after he did such things with food, that he then made that food available to be served to customers.

    • Professor Hale says:

      As the story reads, his only crimes are vandalism and petty theft. No prosecutor would waste his time on this. The only victims are his co-workers who had to clean up after him and the subway owners who lost a small amount of revenue at that location.

    Really nco there is absolutely no proof of any of those charges and do you think that Subway would even want more publicity. Want more of their workers doing the same?
    Getting fired from Subway isn’t like the comeye end yo his world

    I was thinking he was just another angry black man. There are so many of those. But this guy is different. He is an artist, selling his art on YouTube. Just like Michelangelo and DeVinci.

    The world inventory of STUPID is already maxed out. As a Creator, you should look for something that people are interested in and the supply is insufficient to meet demand. You don’t offer anything of value. It’s not even entertaining.
    A Dumbass in desperate need of attention, believing that kinda crap is going to be a YouTube channel with tons of followers and making money is proof you are a Dumbass.
