America's morbid obsession with pedophiles is nearly as creepy as the pedos themselves. Stars all around!
Dr. Phil's Pedopalooza will be back after this!
America has always been morbidly obsessed with everything it claims to hate. Child molesters. Serial killers. Gay sex.

It's bad, but Americans can't beat the British for pure, unadulterated (ha, ha!) paedohysteria. It comes from not having enough real crime to keep 'em terrified, I think.

What I don't get is how Jared didn't know he was being set up, with that music playing in the background.
Maybe he composes minor-key string patterns while he talks dirty.

Stars for actual evil on many levels.

we found this guy and made him famous and now we're shocked that he has an extremely common moral failing. i'm not saying it's wrong and heinous, because it obviously is. but why do you think brett ratner never gets called out for liking young trim (male trim iirc) or why roman polanski's open secret wasn't a really big deal until he'd been on the lam for twenty years?
i think it's because of brand decay. ratner's brand is still good. polanski's slowly decayed until he was no longer useful. jared's brand has been waning for a few years now- witness the "5-dollar footlong" campaign of which he was an obligatory part at most. they knew he was a pervert the whole time, but until his brand was useful they found it advantageous to keep his dark side out of the spotlight. now that he's out of gas, they're done protecting him.
America loves perverts until we don't.
C.F. half of the music industry.
Didn't really finish that thought.. point is it seemed like Jared was pretty much their biggest asset, worth way more than Cosby Show reruns or anything else. I guess it's kinda cool that they cast him out, but I'm sure there were plenty of people in marketing trying to find a way to make it look like an elaborate hoax or something..
they make about 417 million dollars a day, which is just over twice the gross of rush hour 1 alone, but i see and agree with your larger point.
what i was trying to say is how could kfc (for instance) *not* have known that col. sanders was an unreconstructed racist? of *course* they knew. they just ran a cost-benefit and realized that they could maintain plausible deniability and achieve a p.r. victory by sacking him when the information came out. same thing here.
people's proclivities are general knowledge in the entertainment industry, as a result of basic due diligence, (look up anthony pellicano) and don't believe a word a company says when somebody gets sacked for having sex with watermelons or whatever the case may be.
tl;dr- Subway knew damn well jared was an unredeemable pervert and ran with him as their public face anyways, because they knew they could spin it when he inevitably got busted.
They say there are no more heroes, but at least we'll always have Jimmy Saville. On an unrelated note, the five year coma I just woke up from was pretty wild.
"now that he's out of gas"
They could still rebrand him and bring him back. Dress him up in a stripey prison uniform with a bandit mask and call him The Fogler. He'd be a lovable villain that gets comically thwarted.

If Quiznos was smart, they would start an ad campaign with some seriously well known moms (like Sandra Bullock) and start a children's charity here in America that helps children of sexual abuse.

You know what, I'm glad guys like this get stabbed in prison. Fuck it. I'm going to throw aside all attempts at being a better person today. Fuck you, Jared Fogle. I hope you get fucking stabbed.
thank god achewood has something to guide me on the subject

I watched the whole hour and a half Dr. Phil special on this. I've only watched Dr. Phil once before in my life, which was when he interviewed Michelle Knight, but I gotta say, I think it was the creepiest thing I've ever seen. You can practically hear him jacking his dick off over the phone. Spoiler alert: eventually he tries to talk her into letting him see her own kids naked.

I find nothing wrong with any of this.
With what Jared said, or the expose?
|Caminante Nocturno - 2015-11-01 |
It's kind of funny how condescending she sounds.

I'm going to skip this one, but here are five big stars for evil.

I imagine these tapes scratch the surface, since he was talking to this woman for over 2 years about fucking children.
The best / worst part is, he'd still be making cash grinning like an idiot while shilling subs if he wasn't so unbelievably stupid. How do you just randomly say shit like "school kids are hot" to some random person in public? He deserves to get stabbed just for his supreme idiocy alone.
|Doc Victor - 2015-11-01 |
Dear lord this is fantastic on so many levels
Is there anyone who DIDNT think this guy was a creep before though?
|John Holmes Motherfucker - 2015-11-01 |
Incorrigible bleeding heart that I am,I hope he doesn't get stabbed. I'm glad he's in jail, though.
I used to know someone who tried to get help for pedophilia, and from what I heard, no one in the mental system would take responsibility for helping him, and it turned out badly. If you try to help pedophiles, you'll be attacked for it, and then we conclude that pedophiles can't be helped. I'm not sayng that people like Vogel shouldn't be treated like criminals. I'm saying that if we can't try to help pedophiles before they offend, children will suffer for our moral cowardice.
I'd like to offer help, but it's difficult to do, because I don't want it to sound like I'm trying to be mean to you. You are a good person, and you've done nothing wrong.

For some reason, beyond the utter evil and depravity- I'm also irked that he doesn't seem better prepared. He seems to think to go to Thailand just because it's trendy, he didn't like run a few google searches on US laws before dabblin in the diddilin?

I still think this is all viral advertising for Subway's yet to be revealed Veal sandwich.
I think I Brian Harroded that joke from one of you guys, I can't remember.
They're giving Brian Scalabrine a signature sandwich?
