Allison Brown of California is suing the Subway food chain after she was humiliated by what a worker wrote on her check.

“I just broke down crying,” said Brown. “I couldn’t eat it. I kept thinking, ‘Big Mama’ doesn’t need to eat. It started really messing with me. I started thinking, ‘Maybe I need surgery. Do I really look that bad? What’s wrong with me?'”

Brown says that when she contacted the store’s owner, he was less than helpful to her.

“The owner said the employee didn’t know better, that he just didn’t get it,” Brown told The News. “He begged me not to go to the media, so I tried to work with him, but then nobody was calling me back. It’s not right. This really hurt me.”

Now, Brown is suing the company, insisting that it’s not about the money, but instead about trying to get them to start sensitivity training.
