A “sexist” advertisement comparing women to Subway sandwiches has triggered heated debate on social media.
Netizens said Subway’s latest ad reeks of sexism and misogyny.
According to Twitter users, the new ad is distasteful and serves only to objectify women.
This Subway ad reeks machismo. Why use women to compare different sandwich options? Ganito pa din ba ang tingin ng ibang lalaki sa mga babae? I like Subway but this isn’t clicking for me. pic.twitter.com/eWvqzR52l8
