The Gross Thing This Subway Employee Did With Food In The Bathroom

Jumanne, a 28-year-old Subway employee from Providence, Rhode Island, believed he was running out of options. He admitted to being a "clout chaser" in an October 6 Facebook video, after posting other videos showing him trashing the Subway restaurant where he worked. He had a plan to stitch his own rap music video, which he had shot earlier at his Subway shop, to the end of one of the videos of him throwing food behind the restaurant's counter. "I'm about to do this video which I'm expecting it might get millions of views," he says on October 6. "So hopefully Meek will be able to see this," he added, referring to platinum-selling Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill.
