do you think this advertisement is offensive?
I feel like this really is offensive and uncalled for what do you think?
I found this on the onion http://www.theonion.com/article/new-subway-promotion-to-honor-subtember-11-33768 I know they are a satirical website but they have gone too far with this in my opinion.

  • I am not from the USA. However, I still think this is playing with fire. I think it is offensive to be honest it is almost making a bit of a joke about 9/11. When so many people died that day they should not be making this kind of joke about it, even if it is now 14 years ago. I wonder if this really is Subway doing this or someone else.

  • *WARNING. WARNING. EXTREMELY UNPOPULAR OPINION. DON'T READ IF YOU GET OFFENDED EASILY*

    It's offensive yes. But I still think it's funny. I know, I'm a terrible person. But I like dark humor. I laugh at other jokes as well. Let's just say, people would not like me at all. And I don't care.

    I even make my own tasteless jokes. My dad used to beat my mom. And my dad used to beat us. But this is my joke:
    People who stay in abusive relationships really need some sense smacked into them.
    And:
    There's a border between discipline and child abuse, and Mexican parents are never afraid to cross it.

    Even though I have my own limit to what's funny for me, I don't think humor nor comedy should ever be censored. Because just because you don't find it funny, doesn't mean others wouldn't. So long as they're not directly hurting someone. In that ad, they didn't really tear down the towers nor hurt the kid.

    I'm completely against child abuse. And I donate to charities. And I think the world would be a better place if Jared and all other pedophiles died. But this is funny to me:

  • I believe no matter how safely you do or plan something in life, there's always that set of people that will take offensive.

    It's just human nature.

    I see nothing wrong with the ad at all.
    The creation of that ad was not done so in harmful intent.

  • Subway didn't actually make this ad. The Onion has pretty fucked up humor but that's all you're going to get from the site really, maybe try avoiding the site in the future. It's pretty messed up but clever, like the rest of their unbelievable articles. I don't feel offended tbh, but I get where you're coming from.

  • It's playing with fire...

    9/11 was a long time ago now. But not quite as "long time ago" as say, Vietnam or something. Dangerous advertising tactic.

    • I dont know if they actually did this or not its from a satrical news site

  • At first I was trying to figure out how the thing could be offensive. Then I finally remembered that was when those planes crashed.

    To me I don't find it offensive at since I had nobody I cared about die in the towers.

    • You're American and you forgot 9/11/2001 ?

    • Show All
    • Are you even freaking serious? Do you not know World/American History?

    • Damn dude, I know 9/11 better than 98% of the people in the US... My father was a few months away from retiring from the Air Force when 9/11 happened. We engaged in another never ending war and claimed it to be justified. If we really wanted to give fair and even response to this attack we should have given the ultimatum to hand over all the terrorists and their locations within 6 months or we nuke your civilization back to the stone-age. I don't believe in war, I don't believe in killing for revenge, I don't believe in anything that the united states has grown to stand for post 9/11... But I also don't believe in half measures, and creating a war that killed as many people as it has instead of just leaving a lifeless crater at every capital city in the region to remind the world what power we hold and who we are was a half measure.

  • Its ignorant... more than offensive..!
    Anyways yesterday I eat one of these, and it tasted like shit!!
