DJ Pauly D Calls Out Abercrombie & Fitch on 'GTL' Shirt (PHOTO)


You gotta admit, DJ Pauly D has a point! Following news that the brand Abercrombie & Fitch no longer wanted the Jersey Shore cast to wear their clothes, the MTV reality star bit back, tweeting: 
 "Hmmm if They Don't Want Us To Wear Those Clothes Why Make GTL Shirts."
Anyone who watches (or even doesn't watch) the show knows that GTL stems from the Shore saying, "Gym, Tan, Laundry," of which the boys abbreviated to "GTL." In the tweet, Pauly D provided photographic evidence of the A&F T-shirt, as seen above. Who's side are you on in this fashion controversy: the Jersey Shore cast or A&F? Sound off in the comments!!!

Aside from just requesting the cast not to wear the clothes, they have offered them money to cease promotion of the brand. “This association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans,” the company said in a release. 

MTV responded to A&F's request, saying, "It's a clever PR stunt and we'd love to work with them on other ways they can leverage Jersey Shore to reach the largest youth audience on television." 

Also of note, the brand once sold a shirt that read "The Fitchuation".

    You don't know the difference between loose and lose. You lack the ability to use proper spelling, capitalization and punctuation. You can't even form a sentence properly and you're calling other people dumb. If you're going to insult other people's intelligence at least take a second to not look even dumber than who you're insulting.

    Orgy is not short for orgasm. An Orgy is a sex party where people engage in group sex. So yes, you did say they make you sleep with multiple people.

  • courtneybaaaby

    no, orgys is short for something else, but im kidding haha

    If A&F is all about being "classic", then why did they produce shirts with references to Jersey Shore in the first place? Sounds like they wanted the money they were going to get from the sales & now they've decided they don't want that kind of publicity. Tangent, if you work for the store, please tell them to turn the music down and not spray so much cologne all over the place! It makes me want to choke every time I walk by there.

    i have to say A&E what a dumb idea dont you know that now because you guys said that you will loose monety because the fans of jersey shore will no longer wear your brand, and why the hell would you sell gtl shirts if you didnt want the cast to wear your brand you guys are dumb... thankgod i never wore your brand.... im a aero girl

    I work for the company and I must say I would never want my brand to associated with this trashy crowd. AnF is all about the classic look, naturalness and style that is timeless. Just look at the Ed Hardy brand before Jersey Shore came along. Every time I see the signature art, I can't help but think of these ridiculous people and the embarrassing lifestyle behind it. Nonetheless, I don't see people wearing Ed Hardy as much as they use to before Jersey Shore came along. But despite it all, this was all about opportunity.

    I just want to say I did not know what G.T.L stood for before reading this article. I would encourage people to be alcoholics before telling them to watch that show. Personally I agree with A&F for wanting them to not wear there product because I wouldn't want trash representing me.

  • leslieD

    Yes--i was going to say the same PR--both sides benefit-think they are in it together.

  • Punkybj

    AnF made those shirts after the very first season and they took them off the shelf just as fast. This whol AnF paying off cast is a PR stunt. It seems to be getting people to talk!

  • true..

    he's definitely right!
