The cast of Jersey Shore is famous for a few things: being too tan, obnoxious, drinking, and being pretty tacky. Despite all of that, watching Jersey Shore is one of our biggest guilty pleasures. But if you work for the clothing store, Abercrombie and Fitch, you probably find no pleasure (at all) in Jersey Shore, especially when the cast is wearing your product! A&F is known for their super preppy clothes and they became so upset when Mike 'The Situation" Sorrentino wore their brand during one of the episodes of Jersey Shore that they offered to pay The Situation to NOT wear their clothes!
In a statement released by A&F they 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." Ummm, seriously? Would you wear A&F even if The Situation wore it? What about somebody like Paris Hilton? (speakeasy)
