Abercrombie Will Pay The Situation to Not Wear Its Clothes

Abercrombie Will Pay The Situation to Not Wear Its Clothes

Abercrombie & Fitch is offering money to Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino – not to model its clothes but rather to stop wearing them.

“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino‘s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans,” the clothing brand said in a statement.

The 29-year-old Jersey Shore star has been known to wear Abercrombie & Fitch on the MTV show, most recently a pair of neon green sweatpants.

“We have therefore offered a substantial payment to Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and the producers of MTV’s Jersey Shore to have the character wear an alternate brand. We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response,” the press release added.

LOL…genius advertising!

Moral of the story: suck at something SO BADLY that someone will offer you money not to associate with them.

First World entitlement: you’re doing it right.

“could cause significant damage to our image.” We all know douchebags like the wear Ed Hardy anyway, so no loss of revenue for you.

Abercrombie is shizz anyway

While I despise the “Situation” and his general idiocy, I think it is wrong for Abercrombie & Fitch to do such a thing. The Situation is free to wear whatever he wants to wear.

# 7

HA! Ouch…

# 8

This is just because the situation doesn’t fit the “stereotypical” abercrombie & fitch wearer…so basically he isn’t a white male jock.

….their statement is complete rubbish

Lol soo sad on both accounts.
A. That they dont want to be associated with this loser that they are actually willing to pay you NOT to wear their clothes, how majorly offensive is that?
B. Abercrombie thinking their clothes are that special, seriously take a chill pill abercrombie, your clothes are not that special to begin with and revenue is revenue.

A&F lost it’s luster after getting sued by many non-white minorty groups for discrimination. Mike Sorentino didn’t tarnish your image A&F, YOU did!

ahhhhhhhh. I never heard of a band paying someone NOT to wear their clothes. That tells you something about BOTH parties. :I

Its like a store going out in their mall and being like ‘okay you can come in, but sorry not you’ abercrombie has issues.

customer: “hi id like to buy these”
abercrombie: “sorry I cannot sell those items to you, i dont like your look, go drop 15 pounds and get a spray tan, frost the tips of your hair, come back and we’ll see”

I am haven’t worn or shoped at A&F in 5 years plus…where’s my check ??

This is way too funny.

abercrombie fan @ 08/17/2011 at 1:22 am

Thank god, as a huge abercrombie fan, I was like majorly distressed, like losing sleep distressed! Can you even believe it, like losing sleep!?

laverdadduele @ 08/17/2011 at 1:25 am

LOL no one wants to be associated with this worthless POS.

This is just absolutely crazy, no matter how much I dislike the situation.

idk what all yall are talking about, but i think that the situation and his jersey shore friends are EXACTLY the type to wear abercrombie stuff. its all trashy label abs are everything clothing– when did abercrombie get all high and mighty?

Abercrombie is GROSS. and let him wear whatever he wants.

That is awesome. Although I don’t think A&F has a good image to begin with this could be a start if they can get them to stop wearing their brand.

I’ll one up A&F and pay all of them to STOP BREATHING FOREVER.

A&F used to sell a t-shirt that said “The Fitchuation” on it so why the hell are they so against the Jersey Shore cast wearing their clothing now? So dumb.

rahrahrah @ 08/17/2011 at 2:01 am

UM Abercrombie and Fitch used to sell shirts that said “The Fitchuation” “Gym Tan and Laundry” and “What happens in Jersey stays in Jersey” AnF is ridiculous.

I think The Situation is a gross scumbag and would represent the company well. lol

PS. I used to work for abercrombie and I loved it because my coworkers were hilarious but the brand sucks.

@Bryony: He’s free to wear whatever he wants, BUT he’s paid to NOT to wear something he wants……I would take the latter

Excellent marketing ploy. Many will start taking more notice of this brand.

Okay, with that out of the way, can someone now please pay him to stop living in the world. Thanks.

That company is racist PERIOD..
