"Two weeks ago, Allison Brown made a lunch stop at a Subway in Vista. When she got home, she saw the words 'Big Mama' written on one of the boxes." (Via KSEE)

Brown says when she walked into the restaurant to buy a sandwich and two flatbread "Flatizza" pizzas for herself and her husband, everything was fine.

But she says she couldn't believe her eyes when she got home and saw"Big Mama" written on one of the "Flatizza" boxes.

"It's not nice to be picked on, it's not nice to be, it's not nice to be made fun of. And this really destroyed me." (Via KGTV)​

To make matters even worse, Brown says she's trying to eat better and was inspired to do so by Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle, who's known for losing weight with the help of the chain restaurant.

Brown immediately went to the owner of that particular Subway, and she says he apologized and said the worker who wrote the message just "doesn't know better" and "didn't get it." So she took things to the next level.

Brown told KGTV she hired an attorney to help her make anti-discrimination training led by an outside firm mandatory for all Subway employees.

"We all come in different shapes, we all come in different sizes, and then you see something like this… 'Big Mama?' How is that helping somebody?"

Brown says, because of what happened, she will never eat at a Subway restaurant ever again. Subway has yet to comment on the situation.
