Taylor Swift fans are once again rallying together to ban a Taylor Swift shirt which makes fun of the “I Knew You Were Trouble” singers lengthy list of celebrity beaus.
The newest shirt has the last names of some of Swift’s most notable beaus, including Harry Styles, Conor Kennedy, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gylllenhaal and many others, E! News reports. The EDM-themed clothing outlet that created the shirt was hit with several threatening letters from Swift’s fans demanding the shirt be removed.
Lex Houster and Andi Cross, who helped design the shirt and posted it on Instagram, explain that they created the shirt for a friend who wanted to wear it to Swift’s next concert. The shirt was not made as a negative jab at the singer, Fashionista reports.
Houser explained what happened on his blog. “Shortly after, I posted a photo of these on our Facebook page, stating that I was thoroughly entertained and these were some of the best custom shirts we've ever printed. We got a few likes. Nothing out of the ordinary.”
Continuing, he adds, “Late last night I was about to go to sleep and my phone rang. I saw it was a random number and let it go. Suddenly, 3 more calls right in a row. I thought to myself that this was odd, so I checked my email. The subject of the emails were "F**K YOU" and "OFFENSIVE TAYLOR SWIFT SHIRT - TAKE IT DOWN!". Suddenly I realized what was happening: I was being attacked...by SWIFTIES.”
The shirt is currently on sale.
Last month, Abercrombie & Fitch found themselves on Swiftie’s radar after they posted a shirt which read, “#More boyfriends than t.s.”
