Taylor Swift has a lot going on, and probably doesn’t even care about Abercrombie & Fitch’s dig at her, but her fans do. Abercrombie & Fitch really doesn’t give a flying f-ck about customers. They’ve made it clear that if you’re fat, “try Sears” (okay, that was a Mean Girls quote, but you know they were thinking that).
So what’s the latest controversy? Some t-shirt that pokes fun at Taylor Swift. And not very well. From Zimbio:
The “drama” started when fans noticed an Abercrombie shirt that said, “# more boyfriends than t.s.,” mocking Swift and her reputation for cycling through relationships. That’s a big no-no when it comes to the pop star’s fans, better known as Swifties among their own kind. An army of Swifties took to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and even petition site Change.org to launch a PR nightmare on the clothing retailer with the expressed purpose of having the shirt discontinued.
Success! The social media onslaught and repeated calls to corporate worked. The shirt is “no longer available” according to Abercrombie’s PR line.
Where’s Frances Bean when you actually need her?
Plus, shouldn’t the shirt actually read, “More ex-boyfriends than t.s.”?
