Abercrombie & Fitch is in the news again for angering another group of people. This time they seem to have upset Taylor Swift fans with a shirt which reads "# more boyfriends than t.s."
This comment on the state of Swift's love life sent fans into a rage, starting a petition on Change.org (who could never have foreseen their site used for such good) to make the store stop selling the shirt as well as driving thousands of angry 14 year-olds to call the company to complain. One particularly devoted "Swiftie" took to YouTube to voice her displeasure with the company, despite the shirt already having been taken off the shelves:
Abercrombie & Fitch was apparently inundated with so many calls that their voicemail message was changed to: "Thank you for calling Abercrombie & Fitch public relations. If you are calling regarding the Taylor Swift T-shirt, please note that this is no longer available."
They also tweeted an apology:
Hey #swifties we no longer sell the tshirt. We <3 Taylor's music and think she's awesome!

It seems that the lesson here is that the only one who should be able to make money off of the string of Swift's failed relationships is Swift herself.
