Abercrombie to pay 'Jersey Shore' cast to stop wearing its clothes

Clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch said it would offer "substantial payment" to MTV's The Jersey Shore's cast members to stop wearing the brand on air.

Mike “the Situation“ Sorrentino may have to find some new attire for his “gym, tan, laundry“ routine.

“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. 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,“ an Abercrombie & Fitch spokesperson said in a statement. “We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.“

The reality show, currently in its fourth season, features hard-partying and hookups in locations ranging from the show's origin, the Jersey Shore to the current season in Florence, Italy.

Man, I know how they feel.

Every year during Beautification Week the city pays me to either leave town or stay indoors.

Looks like some AnonyMOUSE hack has tagged your thread.

Since that assinine show isn't about anything but drinking and fucking, maybe they can wear Old Navy instead? I'm sure that brand is more apropos.

Years ago, Fruit Of The Loom paid ME to no longer wear their products.

I've gone "COMMANDO" ever since.

Billy - Just the second dumbest? Seems like the world is getting increasingly dumb, it use to be discouraged now it'd embraced.

Anon - You would like to thank me for being the member of this website?
"The Member?"
Are you calling me a dick?

Ted - Yeah, I can't believe people watch that crap. Old Navy might not even like them wearing their clothes.

Heff - I'm not sure if you should be proud or ashamed about the fruit of the Loom thing.
I think the "COMMANDO" thing should be classified and on a "Need to Know" basis only.
