MTV delivered a somewhat diplomatic response to Abercrombie & Fitchs recent request that the “Jersey Shore” cast not wear the companys products.
Earlier this week, A&F said in a statement that the preppy retailer had offered a “substantial” amount of money to “Jersey Shore” cast member Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his co-stars to not sport the brand on air, as Mr. Sorrentinos reputation could damage the apparels image.
Apparently unperturbed by the slight and open to collaborating with A&F, MTV said of the clothing vendor in a statement, “Its a clever PR stunt, and wed love to work with them on other ways they can leverage ‘Jersey Shore’ to reach the largest youth audience on television.”
But “Jersey Shore” legends Mr. Sorrentino and Vinny Guadagnino fired back at A&F in a much less eloquent manner.
“#lasttimeiworeabercrombie I still hadnt discovered masturbation,” Mr. Guadagnino tweeted Wednesday, following up with another tweet, “#lasttimeIworeabercrombie there were still stores in NY to buy it at.”
Mr. Sorrentino kept it clean with the tweet, “Looks like Abercrombie got themself into a Situation,” which linked to a story about A&F stock dropping in the “Jersey Shore” diss aftermath.
Since exploding onto the airwaves in 2009, “Jersey Shore” has been blasted by many for glamorizing crass behavior, heavy alcohol use, stupidity, Italian-American stereotypes, and casual sex. The show, which follows the hard-partying lives of housemates on the actual Jersey shore, has earned the network record ratings but taken trashy TV to new heights.
Survey: Washington attracts ‘high estrogen men
Disgusted by late night text messages, embarrassing blow-offs, and never receiving the phone call you were promised? Leading dating site Chemistry.com has a list of the top 10 cities full of romantic, expressive, “high estrogen” men who probably wouldnt slip into cad territory.
Though bursting with government employees, politicians, political journalists, and all things polarizing and serious, Washington D.C. is 10th on the list, nine spots below perpetually romantic San Francisco.
Asked how bureaucratic, soulless Washington ever earned a spot on a list of romantic cities, Chemistry.coms Helen Fisher told the Daily Caller that D.C. draws a lot of sensitive men who are concerned about the state of the world.
“An awful lot of [educated] people wind up in Washington, I think. And, I think a lot of the not-for-profits pull in a lot of the high-estrogen types who really sort of care about the state of the planet and the state of the polar bears and the state of the United States,” the anthropologist told the DC, adding that 10 million people were surveyed for the list. “So Im not surprised that Washington does attract men who are sort of the big, broad, long-view thinkers who are good with verbal and people skills. I think Washington is a town that thrives on that. Along with that, they tend to be more romantic.”
Keeping with the Washington theme, Ms. Fisher said former President Bill Clinton is a high-estrogen, emotionally aware person.
“I think that Bill Clinton is a good example of a high-estrogen man,” Ms. Fisher explained, noting that he cried at his daughters wedding while his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Rodman Clinton, did not.
Ms. Fisher added that these men are usually liberal, which is right in line with many Washingtonians political leanings. “Theres no question about it that high-estrogen people tend to be more liberal, and they are also more romantic,” she said. “But I think they both stem from their biology, from their inherited activity of estrogen.”
