Rick Ross uses Subway tuna controversy to promote Thighstop
Rick Ross saw a unique opportunity to promote Wingstop’s Digital Food Company’s Thighstop by poking fun at the Subway tuna controversy.
On Tuesday (June 22), Rozay slipped into the comments section on Instagram and scoffed at the fast food restaurant’s alleged lack of transparency when it comes to their tuna. “Wow! @Thighstop winning,” he wrote, adding, “@subway our lemon pepper is lemon pepper.”
For those who don’t know, Subway is in a PR crisis after a New York Times item, published on June 19, claimed that a lab test did not find any tuna DNA in any of the sandwiches tested. According to the newspaper, they collected tuna samples from three different Subway restaurants in Los Angeles and had them tested in a lab. The test results revealed that “no amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample. Therefore, we cannot identify the species.”
So far, Subway has yet to respond to the new findings from the Times lab.
The tuna controversy aside, Ross is still the chicken boss. In the new Wingstop commercial, the Miami rapper decides to turn to another edible part of the bird due to the lack of wings.
“Nobody moves more wings than boss Rick Ross and Wingstop,” said the voice of a presenter at the start of the commercial. “But now that there’s a national wing shortage, I guess you’re done working, huh Rick?” “
Rozay replies, “No, we’re doing thighs.”
“The hustle and bustle continues with Thighstop, all the flavors you love now on your thighs,” the ad ends.
