Taylor Swift Fans Force Abercrombie & Fitch To Pull Shade-Throwing T-Shirt
Taylor Swift‘s army of fans prove they have her back in more ways than one. When Abercrombie & Fitch recently displayed and sold a t-shirt that read “# more boyfriends than t.s.” in their stores, Swift fans took action.
Fans started a petition on Change.org to discontinue sales of the shirt, because, in their words “it’s hurtful to Taylor Swift and Swifties everywhere!”
They also urged others to call the corporate store headquarters to complain. Their hard work paid off, as Abercrombie & Fitch pulled the shirt from their stores.
Moreover, the company’s public relations department has an outgoing message on their phone line that directly addresses the T.Swift situation. It goes: “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 store also took to Twitter to tell all that they think Swift is “awesome,” in an attempt to save face for what is admittedly a commonly-held belief about the singer’s love life.
Hey #swifties we no longer sell the tshirt. We <3 Taylor's music and think she's awesome!—
