Torontonians are absolutely disgusted by a new photo of a bed bug on the TTC, which surfaced recently online. People have not been holding back about it on social media and it's safe to say many do not want to sit on the subway seats anymore. In response to the backlash, the TTC has now commented to the bed bug sighting in Toronto

It all started when a photo of an actual bed bug on the chair of a TTC subway emerged onto Twitter. The photo was uploaded this morning and is starting to gain traction and cause widespread concern.

The sighting led one Twitter user to call out the TTC and ask what they had to say about it. User @UrbanXposures commented on the tweet an hour ago and wrote, "@TTChelps any response to this?!?". The TTC Customer Service responded promptly in approximately 20 minutes with their explanation as to how a bed bug could have gotten onto the subway seat.

In other words, bed bugs could be seen on the subway at any given time, based on what the TTC Customer Service said. Yeah, we're getting goosebumps just thinking about it. 

On the bright side, the TTC does state that subways are typically an unwelcoming place for bed bugs, so they might not be seen there super often – or at least we hope. 

Many Torontonians are unsurprisingly pretty grossed out by the bed bug sighting. The incident has even traumatized some people, who now swear off sitting on the train's seats.

To make things even worse, Toronto has also been named the bed bug capital of Canada. The city has the worst bed bug problem in all of Canada. One Twitter user even used this opportunity to call out city officials for failing to competently deal with the bed bug problem in Toronto. 

If there's one thing you can learn from this, it's to watch where you sit or put your hands while you're riding the TTC subway. Or honestly, maybe just stand altogether. Those seats can be pretty gross regardless. Here's hoping no bed bugs come your way while you're commuting.
