Abercrombie & Fitch has landed in hot water again.

A month after author Robin Lewis said the company's CEO Mike Jeffries wanted thin, beautiful customers in its stores—and Jeffries responded with a statement saying the company was opposed to discrimination—it appears that the retail giant is getting some negative feedback once more. But this time, it's for a different reason entirely.

Abercrombie has pulled a T-shirt that appears to reference the love life of musician Taylor Swift off the shelves, after fans bombarded the chain store with complaints.

The controversial top read, "#more boyfriends than t.s."—an apparent joke about the pop singer's love life.

So many Swifties made requests for the shirt to be discontinued that the store even added a personalized greeting to their hotline.

The company's corporate message system says, "Thank you for calling Abercrombie & Fitch public relations. If you are calling regarding the Taylor Swift t-shirt, please note this is no longer available."

It looks like there really is power in numbers!

Swift has dated some of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors, and has written songs about some of her ill-fated romances.

She's been linked to Jake Gyllenhaal, Harry Styles and John Mayer in the past and told Elle magazine in February that she prefers to let the man in the relationship take the lead. 

"I never chase boys," she confessed. "They don't like it."
