Subway has scrapped an online children’s game called “Jared’s Pants Dance,” after former pitchman Jared Fogle agreed Wednesday to plead guilty to child pornography charges and to crossing state lines to pay for sex with minors.

Mediaite reports that young players were tasked with catching Subway sandwiches and other items in a pair of Mr. Fogle’s famous oversized blue jeans.

The game was taken down after CNBC’s Ben Berkowitz tweeted about the game’s existence following Mr. Fogle’s announced plea deal on Wednesday.

The sandwich chain cut ties with Mr. Fogle just a day earlier.

Under the plea deal, the government agrees to recommend less than 13 years in prison for Mr. Fogle. The agreement said he will also pay $1.4 million in restitution to 14 minor victims, who will each receive $100,000.
