Jessica Simpson isn’t chicken when it comes to making fun of herself.

The singer/actress sent out a tweet Friday in support of the Subway sandwich chain, which is under the gun from a lawsuit claiming there’s no tuna in its tuna sandwiches. The chain has vigorously denied the claims, saying there’s “no truth” to the allegations.

Simpson, of course, is famous for confusing a can of Chicken of the Sea tuna with the barnyard animal.

Simpson wrote in a tweet, “It’s OK @SUBWAY. It IS confusing.”

The original Simpson confusion occured in the MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.

Simpson asked then-husband Nick Lachey, “Is this chicken that I have, or is this 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. “Oh, I understand now. I read it wrong.”
