Meanwhile, Buzzfeed reports that a phone call to the Abercrombie number on the petition has the following message: “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.”
Based on Abercrombie's decision to pull the shirt, implication is clearly: Don't screw with Taylor Swift fans.
I'm not sure what the big deal is here, though. Taylor Swift must be subject to hundreds – if not thousands — of jokes a day on Twitter making fun of her dating life and boyfriends. Pretty sure she has pretty tough skin, despite all the whiny, sappy songs about boyfriends breaking her heart and such. I'm sure a lousy shirt from Abercrombie that barely anyone noticed hurt her feelings.
