Abercrombie & Fitch Offers Cash To Jersey Shore’s Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino To Wear Something Else
CBSNewYork/AP, 8/17/11

Stop wearing our clothes.

That’s the message Abercrombie & Fitch Co. is sending to Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and the rest of the Jersey Shore cast. In a news release, Abercrombie says it’s concerned that having Sorrentino seen in its clothing could cause “significant damage” to the company’s image. Abercrombie says a connection to The Situation goes against the “aspirational nature” of its brand and may be “distressing” to customers.

(As in, obese and/or pimply teenage mall rats who dream of being yuppies. Dream on– that ship has sailed!))

The Ohio-based retailer has apparently offered a “substantial payment” to Sorrentino and the producers of the MTV show so he’ll wear something else and says it is also making the offer to the rest of the Jersey Shore cast.

Mike & crew are laughing all the way 2 the bank. Albeit in the nude. Like, that bothers them…
