The desire to sign at Meek Mill cost a man his job. A 28-year-old (now former) subway employee thought it would be a good idea to devastate the space behind the sandwich counter and capture the action with the camera.

Subway employee hopes for Meek Mill signing
In his video, which has since gone viral, the man makes it clear that he’s finished making sandwiches.
“F * ck all this Subway shit!” He says there. He explains that he actually doesn’t want to spoil the
shop that much. He does it anyway: while he talks into the cell phone camera, he drops plenty of food
on the ground. At some point, everything else that makes a sandwich will be on the store floor. This is

video, the perpetrator assures that he wants to clean up later. He also posts on Twitter: “Controversy Sells”.

by NewsWeek, Subway confirmed that the employee was fired from the videos. He has now spoken up once again
and stated that his actions were wrong. He accept the consequences. The vandalism was real. Other videos,
in which, for example, he lays out a toilet seat with cheese and sausage, were fakes. A public reaction from Me
