It has not been a good week for Jared Fogle AKA The Subway Guy. First, his house in Indiana gets raided by the FBI as part of a very disturbing child porn investigation that so far has netted the executive director of his anti-obesity foundation (http://www.jaredfoundation.org). Then, Subway cuts all ties with Fogle after 15 years of somehow convincing people that eating a foot long hoagie will help them lose weight. Now he’s lost his cameo in one of the most anticipated movies of the year; SHARKNADO 3. Hey, it was at least a big deal for Jared.
The SyFy Channel confirmed the news to Entertainment Weekly that editors cut Fogle’s cameo appearance out of their upcoming film Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No in the wake of the FBI raid and their investigation. This would have been Fogle’s second cameo in a Sharknado movie. He first appeared in Sharknado 2: The Second One as, well, a guy eating a sandwich. What else would you expect him to play? Actually, I’d rather not know your answer to that question.
Sure there’s an image issue to worry about since Jared’s name and reputation are being tarnished by just the possibility of a crime of this magnitude but wouldn’t it make more sense to leave his cameo in the movie and alter it a bit? Who wouldn’t want to see him get eaten by a flying shark in the most painful way possible at this point? Even before this week that is.
