Abercrombie & Fitch Pulls T-Shirts Mocking Taylor Swift’s Love Life After Fan Backlash

Abercrombie & Fitch picked the wrong pop star to mess with.
Abercrombie’s tops read, “# more boyfriends than t.s.,” an obvious reference to Swift’s dating record.
The “Red” singer’s fans revolted by creating a petition on Change.org, saying the shirts were offensive to their idol.
When Gossip Cop called Abercrombie’s public relations department, an automated message stated, “Thank you for calling Abercrombie & Fitch public relations. If you are calling regarding the Taylor Swift t-shirt, please note this is no longer available.”
The company also tweeted on Tuesday, “Hey #swifties we no longer sell the tshirt. We <3 Taylor’s music and think she’s awesome!”
Abercrombie has a bit of a history in clashing with stars.
In 2011, the company was blasted by the “Jersey Shore” cast after it offered to pay “The Situation” to stop wearing its clothes — while selling shirts with the reality stars’ coined motto, “GTL” (gym, tan, laundry.)
