Abercrombie and Fitch Will Pay The Situation Not to Wear Their Clothes

Prepare for a hilarious EFF-YOU to a guy who makes all other shirtless douche bags look like pleasant do-gooders: according to E! News, clothing company Abercrombie and Fitch claims they are willing to pay Jersey Shore star Mike “TheSituation” Sorrentino to not wear their clothes. It’s like a sponsorship, except OPPOSITE.

According to the report:

We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image,” a rep for the clothier said. “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.”
Fans, customers, same thing. In any case, while the Sitch is the only one who got the formal namecheck in the statement, A&F hasn’t singled him out, and in fact offered the same payment to the entirety of the housemates.
“We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and we are urgently waiting a response.”

Now, of course, stating that a group of people aren’t classy enough to wear your clothing is a pretty a**holey move, especially when said brand of clothing is geared towards rich snobby high schoolers, but I DON’T CARE. The fact that the cast of the Jersey Shore is such a vile group of people that they damage every type of clothing they touch (like a reverse Midas, I guess) is pretty hilarious. Take this sign outside a bar in New Orleans, for example. If we can continue decimating the reputations of the stars of that awful reality show until they are forced into hiding like those two soul suckers Heidi and Spencer, well, I’d be VERY, VERY pleased.
