Taylor Swift’s Swifties Unite to Bring Down Another T-Shirt About Her Exes
The singer has made it clear that she doesn't appreciate jokes about her many rumored romances , and neither do her fans.
Less than a month after her so-called Swifties pressured chain store Abercrombie & Fitch into removing a T-shirt that read "#more boyfriends than t.s.," fervored fans of the 23-year-old are targeting a much smaller clothier … with less successful results.
It all started when online retailer Bad Kids Clothing produced a shirt with the last names of men who have been linked to Swift — whether or not she actually dated them — for a custom order, and posted a pic of the result on Facebook.
The latest controversial garment. (Bad Kids Clothing) As Lex Houser, the owner of Bad Kids Clothing, put it on her blog Friday, what followed was an "attack of the Swifties." She received "70+ emails, 20+ calls, 12 texts and about 9 BILLION tweets, all from Swifties threatening to burn Bad Kids to the ground if we did not comply with their wishes" and "take down" the "extremely offensive" garment.
The threats backfired, though, because instead of pulling the T-shirt, Houser opted to put it on sale for the public. And she couldn't be happier about it.
"Well GUESS WHAT Swifties? Your heads are about to explode...
because we're officially putting these babies on sale!" she wrote. "This shirt shall be named 'The Doherty' after the man who requested it be made, and it's going on sale right about..
Ouch. Hauser even referred to felines, and Swift is a self-proclaimed cat lady.
