Angry Fans Force Abercrombie To Pull Taylor Swift T-Shirt (Video)
Well, Abercrombie is at it again. Their recent run-in with now ex-shoppers over not producing clothing sizes larger than ten has ‘Swift’ly evolved into a whole new mess.
Recently, Abercrombie & Fitch put out a t-shirt that read “#more boyfriends than t.s.”
Due to an insane influx of ‘Swifties’ everywhere calling in with complaints, the new P.R. line on Abercrombie’s voicemail says “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."
Other t.s. fans even started a Change.org petition urging Abercrombie to remove the ‘offensive’ shirt, which has over a hundred signatures as of late. A Twitter user, amongst a wave of Swift devotees who have emerged over the issue, wrote “SORRY TAY COULDN'T HEAR YOU OVER THE SOUND OF HER SCREAMING FANS.”
Another enraged tween named Chelsea Nicole decided to call Abercrombie’s P.R. line herself, and recorded her call for all to see:
In an all-too-late effort to save face, Abercrombie posted an apology to their Twitter page:
Hey #swifties we no longer sell the tshirt. We <3 Taylor's music and think she's awesome!
