Abercrombie and Fitch to pull offensive shirts after "girl-cott"
by Stefania Butler  

Retailer Abercrombie and Fitch has agreed to pull its latest line of offensive T-shirts off the shelves as a result of a "girl-cott' that received national media attention. (I blogged this recently.) The shirts are emblazoned with slogans like "I make you look fat" and "Blondes are adored, brunettes are ignored." Abercrombie and Fitch maintains that the shirts are "meant to be humorous." The latest controversy is not the first for the retailer. Two years ago, Abercrombie & Fitch pulled its popular catalogs that featured nude men and women after protests, and in 2002 it discontinued a line of T-shirts that Asian-Americans claimed was racially insensitive............
