NextImg:Subway Staunchly Criticized Over 'Distasteful' Sign at Georgia Store Referring Titanic Sub

In a small suburb of Savannah, Georgia, a sign outside a Subway restaurant came under fire for an insensitive remark apparently aimed at the recent submersible tragedy.

Rincon’s Subway, known for its light-hearted signage, displayed a message which, this time, struck a somber note: “Our subs don’t implode.” This was reported by WTOC 11, a local news outlet.

The comment seemed to reference a grim event involving the Titan, an OceanGate submersible. Five people lost their lives when the submarine suffered a sudden implosion on its journey to the wreckage of the Titanic.

Tragically, the implosion occurred less than two hours into their voyage towards the ocean floor.

The unfortunate crew included OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, entrepreneur Hamish Harding, renowned Titanic expert Paul-Henri Nargeolet, businessman Shahzada Dawood, and his young son, 19-year-old Suleman.

The “catastrophic” implosion claimed their lives on June 18, with officials confirming their demise only after the debris was discovered on June 22.

Public reactions to the Subway sign swiftly followed, with many voicing their opinions on social media.

In response to public outcry, a manager at the Rincon Subway confirmed that the sign was promptly taken down.

Still, some actually saw the humor intended in the sign.

Even so, Subway’s corporate office, in a statement to Fox News Digital, clarified their stance: “We have been in contact with the franchise about this matter and made it clear that this kind of comment has no place in our business. The sign has since been removed.”
