@Abercrombie Responds to Bogus Abercrombie Site with "N*gger Brown Pants"

In a statement to TMZ, Abercrombie and Fitch made it clear that they are in no way affiliated with a site that began to circulate yesterday on the web making many people uncomfortable and even angry.
Their statement was simple:
We do not condone racist language. This is a counterfeit website and we have initiated legal proceedings to shut it down.
The site- boasted to be an outlet for the clothing giant selling items at discounted rates. When I heard of it, I personally tweeted the company demanding an explanation of the site. I figured it was bogus, btu still felt the company owed their consumers at least a statement that they were working on disassociating their name from such a racist site.

The site has obviously been shut down via A&F's lawyer team so the link is no longer valid, but the site was adorned with everything you can think of to make it seem legit, the only problem- a pair of "Nigger Brown Pants". S/o to A & F for handling that really quickly!
