Jersey Shore stars react to Abercrombie offer
The cast of Jersey Shore have hit back at Abercrombie & Fitch, after the clothing brand offered to pay the TV stars not to wear their designs.
The group are renowned for their wild antics and are regularly seen getting into trouble on the hit MTV show. Their quick rise to fame has seen them cash in on a number of endorsements, but now Ohio-based company Abercrombie & Fitch are retreating from the controversial group.
The retailer released a statement earlier this week stating a “deep concern” over the association between the castmates, and vowed to pay the reality television stars if they chose to wear another label.
They targeted Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino in particular, and now the outspoken star has taken to his Twitter page to thank fans for their support amid the furore.
"Thanks #SituationNation for always having my back and you are the best fans in the world! I love you guys! (sic)” he wrote.
Paul ‘Pauly D’ DelVecchio also hit back at the claims. The DJ mused over why the popular clothing brand encouraged Jersey Shore branding by using their phrases on their attire, when they weren’t interested in being associated with them.
"Hmmm if they don't want us to wear those clothes, why make GTL shirts?" Pauly tweeted.
Meanwhile, castmate Vinny Guadagnino has been named the celebrity face of Philips Norelco's new back-to-school campaign.
