Abercrombie publicly dissed Mike when they asked him never to wear the A&F brand again. Now, he’s demanding that they pay up for stealing ‘The Situation’ and ‘GTL’ trademarks.
Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is getting even with Abercrombie & Fitch after the company tried to bribe him with cash back in August not to wear their clothes. To add insult to injury, Abercrombie actually sold shirts that may infringe on Mike’s key phrase, “GTL” — or “gym, tan laundry” for the uninitiated. Now, The Situation is getting his revenge and suing A&F for $4 million, according to TMZ.
Back in August, the company wanted Mike to clean his closet of all items Abercrombie. They offered him money to never wear any the label again.
Mike has reversed the attack and is now going after A&F. He filed a $4 million lawsuit in Florida against the company saying that A&F “has infringed on the GTL and the Situation trademarks,” reports TMZ. Mike pinpoints the company’s advertising and the fact that it sells shirts with the words “The Fitchuation” and “GTL … You Know The Deal” written on them.
