Rick Ross Uses Subway’s Tuna Controversy to Promote Thighstop

Rick Ross saw a unique opportunity to promote Wingstop’s Digital Food Company Thighstop by mocking Subway’s tuna controversy.

On Tuesday (June 22), Rozay slid in the comment section on Instagram and poked fun 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 article, published on June 19, claimed that a lab test found no tuna DNA in any of the sandwiches it tested. According to the newspaper, they gathered samples of tuna from three different Subway eateries in Los Angeles and got them tested at 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 not addressed the Times’ new lab findings as of yet.

Tuna controversy aside, Ross is still the boss of chicken. In the new Wingstop ad, the Miami rapper decides to pivot to another edible part of the bird due to the shortage of wings.

“Nobody moves more wings than the boss Rick Ross and Wingstop,” an announcer’s voice says at the start of the commercial. “But now that there’s a national wing shortage, guess you’re done hustlin’, huh Rick?”

Rozay replies, “Nah, we doin’ thighs.”

“The hustle continues with Thighstop, all the flavors you love now on thighs,” the ad ends.
