Gay porn bogs are abuzz today with news that that Fleshbot crush object Kurt Wild has been fired from his day job as a Subway sandwich artist for being a porn star--which is appalling and boycott-worthy and one more reason to avoid the ubiquitous, prefab fast food joint and its creepy spokesmodel Jared. The news comes via an email from Kurt himself which was circulated by Wild's former agent at FabScout Media. We feel bad about Kurt's employment issues, and wish him all the best. (And we feel even more worse about all those giggles and eye-rolling he had to endure from some of his more porn-savvy customers while they were ordering their footlongs--to say nothing of all those "meat handling" jokes. Sigh.) See Kurt's letter explaining the whole sorry situation after the jump.
. . .
I just wanted to tell everyone that I was just fired from my work at subway because I have done gay porn. A customer said they wouldn't even eat there at subway anymore because of my past work and said that if I wasn't fired then they would boycott the store. What I say is, if one person can try to ruin me everywhere I work... maybe I should take a stand and boycott their store too if they can't let people's privacy be treated right. I should have the right to work anywhere I can and it isn't right or fair that people can keep me from working simply because of a "gay" issue. If a girl did what we do it would probably be ok.. and if a guy does straight porn.. he is bragged about. When I do gay porn, I feel a bit lynched for the rest of my life. Not right. Thanks for reading.
