Disgraced Subway Pitchman Jared Fogle HAS NOT BEEN Raped, Murdered In Prison

Fact Check

  • by: Jeremy Smith

There is a fake/hoax story making the rounds on the interwebs about former Subway spokesperson being murdered in prison. This is simply not true. He is still alive and kicking, with a lifelong supply of footlongs in prison.

The fake story starts with "According to local police, Jared Fogle, the disgraced former Subway pitchman who was convicted on child pornography and sex charges, was found dead in his prison cell on Thursday afternoon. Prison officials say that it appears that Fogle was raped and sodomized and stabbed with a prison-made shank".

The NOT TRUE story goes on to say:

"Mr. Fogle had, until recently, been in protective custody to assure that this exact thing did not happen," said prison warden Michael Ross. "After he was released into general population on Wednesday evening, we heard rumors that an attack was imminent. Unfortunately, we did not move him back into PC in time. Mr. Fogle was pronounced dead at 3:14PM on Thursday." Many of the prison's gangs have reportedly taken accountability for the act; all of them say that it was their men who did it.

The false story ends with this zinger:

"Oh man, it was my boys in the Aryan gang, dude," said gang leader Mark Smith. "We might hate a lot of people, but the worst are the child fuckers. They always gonna get what's coming to them, man. It was ours for the taking, and we took it." Other gangs also claim that they are responsible, including the Latinos, bikers, the Jews, and the African-Americans. So far, police say they have no leads as to who is actually responsible, but that they're not too worried about finding out, either.

The bloody jail cell picture comes from this website, NOT from this FAKE story. Maybe next time.
