Abercrombie and Fitch is PAYING The Situation not to wear their clothes anymore on the show because he could be spreading a negative image of their brand.
Didn’t they do that to themselves when they started making thong underwear for 12 year olds? I read about that a few years ago.
People Magazine Link:
The actual ‘statement’ from A&F:
I can’t tell if this is ridiculous or warranted. I have to say I was surprised last week when I saw him wearing sweatpants from there on the show b/c I know how they are about their ‘brand’. Yes, I watch Jersey Shore every Thursday with Fiance. It’s like eating junk food – we know we should not waste our minds on that crappy show..but we just…can not…stop…watching.

@soyjoy222: My favorite part was ‘We are deeply concerend that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image.’ Hahahaha, like thongs for children already hasn’t?

@PinkPandaBear: Hahaha yea, it’s pretty sad when you’re deemed worse than push up bikinis for 6 year-olds and sparkly thongs for tweens.

I wish they would pay me not to wear their clothes, since I already wouldn’t be caught dead in them.

first, your title was awesome and made me spit out my coffee
second, it was only a matter of time, and GENIUS in the way of publicity – every news source across the country is talking about A&F – for free (or relatively, depending on the cast’s acceptance of the pay-out)
and im a shore addict too – i cant stop watching them and their shenanigans ha

Though in all honesty, I couldn’t wear their clothes if I wanted to. I can’t get within ten feet of the entrance to their stores without suffocating on that God-awful cologne they spray everywhere.

this made me laugh, granted I’m not the situation’s biggest fan.

They should send me a cheque too! I haven’t worn their clothes since I was 20. I think a cool million would be appropriate in my case, I’ll let them off easy 🙂

HAHA! I can’t believe I ever wore their stuff after reading this. They can pay me anytime!
