Um, just wow.
#1 A&F just sucks. Lawsuits have been filed against the company due to alleged discriminatory employment practices, legal conflicts continue over branding, clothing style, employment practices, and racism. Not to to mention the company has also been accused of promoting the sexualization of pre-teen girls by marketing thongs to 10-year-olds and padded bikini tops to 7-year-olds. They are concerned about this???
#2 The 'Situation' isn't going t ruin their image that is already shot and Michael Sorrentino certainly doesn't deserve, or need this kind of 'payoff.' Last year alone he brought in close to $5 MILLION. Raking in close to $60,000 per episode in salary, and between $15,000 and $50,000 per event for appearances and endorsements.
This is just absurd. Why doesn't Abercrombie and fucking Fitch take the money and donate it to the current extreme drought and the famine in Somalia, which has affected more than 11 million people that are in danger of starvation, now calling for world aid. I dunno, or donate the six figures, hard cash, to any of the other 'situations' in actual need.
