CNN — These are the shocking pictures that started everything.
They were posted on a social media site, and one shows a man putting his genitals on what appears to be a Subway bread dough, with the caption "I will be your sandwich artist today."
In another picture, someone is holding up a bottle with a caption saying they froze their urine at work.
Pictures that led to the two Subway employees being fired and restaurant temporarily closed, left customers with some pretty strong reactions,
"I think I'm going to go home and consider puking."
Jason South came here tonight for a bite to eat, but say this sign saying the restaurant was closed.
"Sometimes these things kind of go on in fast food restaurants and most of us just really don't want to know about it."
"I was pretty disgusted."
Patrick Gibson calls himself a regular customer here, "I didn't go to this one specifically because it was at a gas station, I didn't trust it. But then my coworkers told me it was the cleanest one around and the best one to go to. I don't get it. I don't get what the joke is. I don't get that it's funny."
Health officials aren't laughing either, "We know we needed to look into it."
Columbus Public Health says the restaurant closed tonight just to clean, "Immediately they took action to make sure all those surfaces were cleaned and that the food was discarded."
We talked with the company that owns the Subway, their Director of Operations said, "We do our best to hire properly. We had a couple of kids who don't understand the ramifications of what they do and what they post."
