This is ridiculous. Please be more racist A&F.
The clear winners in this Situation (pun intended) are the Jersey Shore cast.
They're getting paid not to wearing this crappy brand.

I have to say all jokes aside i think A&F are such a vile company for what they're doing, i dont watch Jersey Shore nor do i know who the Situation is but what they're doing is so wrong. Imagine being told by your favourite label we dont want you wearing our clothes anymore, im i big Ralph Lauren fan if he told me that he didn't want me wearing his clothes anymore i think i'd be heartbroken lol. I just think thats one of the poorest tactics a company could make.. smh.

When you think of all the luxury brands such as Chanel, Lanvin, Gucci, Prada, LV, Dior etc they would never resort to such tactics to keep their exclusivness i dont see why A&F think they're so much better than the rest.

^Couldn't agree more and vile is exactly the word I would use. Realistically speaking, there's nothing about Abercrombie & Fitch, quality wise, that would possibly justify them being so offended by The Situation wearing their clothes. This nasty little brand is quite clear that they are not "exclusive", but exclusionary, which I find completely ridiculous. Their CEO is a piece of work too. All this stupid publicity stunt did was call attention to the fact that he wears A&F stuff (did I know this before? NO ) and make people who are barely aware of The Situation feel bad for him/sort of like him.

Jersey Shore is my guilty pleasure (actually I watch it and think "OMG. Is this possible that such people exist? Where is IQ? What the hell?") and I find the whole affair pretty amusing. Its just the icing on the cake for their season in Italy...

Sounds like a good deal, I mean with that money they could buy better clothes from better brands than A&F.

AF is already the rightful successor to Ed Hardy, tackiness wise

^ Lol, I was thinking the same, A&F is in the same line that American Eagle, Gap or Aeropostale, too american basic clothes. They have nothing to lose if someone undesirable uses their clothes, because i can't find the brand identity anywhere. Also the brand clients are closer of this guy that someone like the models of their ads.

Thank you, Felipe. I knew there was a reason the only thing I've ever bought from American Eagle were sunglasses. at "aspirational nature of this brand." Aspirational to what? Be a sleazeball preppy wannabe?

They censored the AF logo on Situation's sweatpants:
