Last August, Abercrombie & Fitch, the Official Outfitter of 50-Year-Old Gays™, made a media splash by announcing that they would pay Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino not to wear their clothes. Now three months later comes — The Litigation! *Lifts T-shirt, flexes complaint.*
Filed in Florida, the lawsuit claims Abercrombie infringed "the GTL and The Situation trademarks," by selling T-shirts that said "The Fitchuation" and "GTL...You Know The Deal" on them. The company marketed these shirts without paying Sorrentino anything, while simultaneously distancing themselves from him in a press release. So which is it, A&F? You on The Sitch Train or not?!
Situation (who is reportedly broke) is asking $4 million in damages, which should barely register a dent, seeing as how they have all those extra, child porn revenue streams via catalog sales. Still, it's probably not the greatest time for this: Abercrombie saw its stock value tumble 15 percent on Wednesday after it admitted to shareholders that they had discounted merchandise too heavily and lost profits, the Wall Street Journal reports.
