Abercrombie & Fitch Pulls T-Shirts Mocking Taylor Swift’s Love Life After Fan Backlash
Abercrombie & Fitch picked the wrong pop star to mess with. The clothing company has pulled t-shirts mocking Taylor Swift’s love life after receiving a huge wave of backlash from the singer’s fans. 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.) Pauly D slammed the label, saying, “Your PR sux” and The Situation sued the company for trademark infringement.
