A lawsuit is now considered against the restaurant after the employee responsible for writing the insulting phrase was told of his actions before blowing them off.


VISTA, Calif. – A woman who placed an order at a local Subway said she was left in tears after seeing what was marked on her order.

“It’s not right. It’s not right,” said Allison Brown, choking back tears.

For Brown, the emotions are still raw, two weeks after a lunch stop at a Vista Subway restaurant on 1906 Hacienda Drive.

Brown said a young worker greeted her and took her order for a 6-inch tuna sub sandwich and two flatbread “Flatizzas” — one for her and the other for her husband.

When she got home, she couldn’t believe what she saw.

“When I took it out, I saw ‘Big Mama’ … What is this?” said Brown, who added she has always been conscious of her weight.

The words “Big Mama” were written on one of the Flatizza boxes.

“I was hurt. I was devastated. I was crying,” said Brown.
