Mike Sorrentino ( The Situation) claims that Abercrombie & Fitch never contacted him directly to stop wearingÂ theirÂ clothes forÂ compensation. Didn’t they say they did contact him, but got no reply! What gives!
Memo to Abercrombie & Fitch: Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino will gladly take your offer not to wear your clothes — just get a hold of him.
As we previously reported, the clothing manufacturer issued a statement this week offering “a substantial payment” to the reality star not to sport their threads, out of fear heâ€™d mar their preppy image.
The Sitch’s reaction?
“I got no problems with Abercrombie & Fitch,” he said in Manalapan on Thursday, noting that the company has not “contacted me in anyway.”
As for the offer, he said, “That’s pretty crazy — Hey man, call me up, I’m here!”
In their press release Tuesday, the company said of the Sitch wearing their clothes: “This association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans,” adding they’re “deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image.”
The Situation said he thought the Ohio-based company’s actions just meant “bad publicity” for them, adding he’s heard their stock prices have dropped as their popularity wanes.
Last year, the company embraced the reality star, putting out a shirt with the phrase, “The Fitchuation.”
