Jessica Simpson, the 40-year-old singer, and entrepreneur reacts hilariously to the latest Subway lawsuit. It states that they serve fake tuna in their sandwiches and wraps. The singer poked fun at her chicken of the sea mishap in 2003.
Two plaintiffs have sued Subway, alleging them of fraud that they do not use actual tuna in their tuna sandwiches. The lawsuit claims it is a “mixture of concoctions” they make to “imitate the appearance of tuna.” However, the company has denied these allegations. They wrote, “There is simply no truth to the allegations in the complaint that was filed in California. Subway delivers 100% cooked tuna to its restaurants, which is mixed with mayonnaise and used in freshly made sandwiches, wraps, and salads that are served to and enjoyed by our guests.”
The famed singer sympathizes with the company. She tweeted, “It’s OK SUBWAY. It IS confusing.”
To this, the official Subway Twitter handle replied, “ugh we were just about to call you. Confirmed. Our tuna is 100% wild caught tuna and 100% not chicken.”
The pop singer had infamously confused tuna for chicken during the MTV reality show; Newlyweds in 2003. Jessica asked her then-husband, Nick Lachey, “Is this chicken that I have, or is this fish?”
The star continued her query, “I know it’s tuna, but it says chicken by the sea,” “Is that stupid? What is it called — chicken by the sea or in the sea?”
Nick told his wife that she was actually eating tuna. He added, “Chicken of the Sea is the brand,” “You know, cause a lot of people eat tuna, just like a lot of people eat chicken. Chicken of the Sea.”
Jessica has shown that she is now able to laugh at herself after 17 years. She has no problem with poking fun at herself for the tuna-chicken confusion she had.
