The singer / actress tweeted on Friday in support of sandwich chain Subway, which is facing a lawsuit claiming there is no tuna in its tuna sandwiches. The channel vigorously denied the allegations, saying there was “no truth” in the allegations.
Simpson, of course, is famous for mistaking a tin of sea chicken tuna for the barnyard animal.
Simpson written in a tweet, “It’s OK @SUBWAY. It’s confused.”
Simpson’s original confusion happened on the MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.
Simpson asked her then-husband Nick Lachey, “Do I have chicken or is it fish?” I know it’s tuna, but it says chicken by the sea. Is that stupid? What is it called – chicken by the sea or in the sea? “
Lachey clarified it for her.
“Oh….” Simpson replied. “Ah I understand now. I misread it.

Ben Silverman’s Electus and Universal Television produce. “I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make things up that really happen in my life – so between real life elements and a great team of writers, I think we’re going to make people laugh!” , Simpson said.
