(Reuters) – Retailer Abercrombie & Fitch said on Friday it would stop selling some of its T-shirts after a national boycott by teenage girls, who objected to slogans emblazoned across the shirts such as “Who needs brains when you have these?”[...]
Earlier this week, the Women & Girls Foundation of Southwest Pennsylvania launched a “girl-cott” of the store in protest over the T-shirts, launching an e-mail campaign and appearing on NBC’s “Today” show to air their concerns.
Well, that’s certainly cool. Although the corporate drones folded so easily, I wonder if perhaps the initial sales on the retro-sexist tees were dissappointing.
