Mediaite came dangerously close to using the n-word in its daily newsletter. But to be fair, it’s not really the publication’s fault. It’s the inmate’s name — Steven J. Nigg — who went after former Subway sandwich star Jared Fogle for getting special treatment behind bars. The now infamous celeb has been in a Colorado federal prison for possessing and distributing child porn and having sex with a minor.  Nigg left Fogle bloodied, according to numerous reports.

Wow…what an unfortunate surname.

But Nigg isn’t embarrassed by his name. In fact, he used it for a consignment store he once owned. Naturally, he called it “Niggs Nuthin’ Fancy.”
