If you put in an "s", you might be offending me.

If you put in an "f", it's faster than riding the subway.

If you put in a " b", the rainbow colors are disappearing.

The answer should be in the form

_pple

followed by an explanation.

My guess is

_light

If you put in an "s", you might be offending me.

A 'slight' is an insult

If you put in an "f", it's faster than riding the subway.

'Flight' is certainly faster than the subway (this could also be a play on words in that flight is the 'super' way as opposed to the 'sub' way.)

If you put in a " b", the rainbow colors are disappearing.

'Blight' is the browning of plant tissue infected by a pathogenic organism.

Possibly

i will just go ahead and give it a chance:

_illy

If you put in an "s", I'd be offended.

silly obviously offending

If you put in an "f", it's faster than the subway.

filly: a young female horse, especially one less than four years old.

If you put in a " b", the rainbow is disappearing.

billy: not sure about it but there is a billy the gnome and it is related about rainbow
