Mike \"The Situation\" Sorrentino Learned What Lawyer Means, Plans to Sue A & F
Last month, outdated WASP clothier, Abercrombie & Fitch, decided to offer Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino a bunch of money to not wear their stuff. Joke’s on you, A&F. You think you can pay him to not do something? MTV's already beat you there.

Really stupid move on the part of Abercrombie, seeing as how the only people I’ve seen still wearing their stuff is The Situation.

The whole thing was later chalked up as an elaborate PR stunt, but their stock dropped shortly after they made the announcement. I’m guessing it’s because The Situation owns most of their stock.

It was also kind of sh-tty of them considering they’ve profited from the guy’s name by producing T-shirts with slogans like “The Fitchuation” and “GTL Fitch”.

Well, guess who got a lawyer? And figured out what a lawyer does? That’s right, our old pal, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. After this whole…ahem…situation unfolded, someone told him Abercrombie & Fitch was using his name, and Mike was like:

Waaaah? Dat cray-cray. Straight up cray-cray, dawg.

And so now the Jersey Shore star’s lawyers have issued a cease-and-desist letter stating that A&F has infringed on his legal copyright by making the shirts, which profit on his likeness. The company reportedly has until Tuesday to respond to the request.

Abercrombie initially claimed:

"We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans."

Meanwhile, taking a break from the reality show business, Sitch has been in East Lansing, Michigan, filming a web series for YOBI.tv. Called New Stage, Sorrentino plays a hip-hop mogul who has chosen to be the lead judge on a talent competition show.

YOBI.tv had a full season of singing, comedy, filmmaking and photography contests, and winners of the contests got the opportunity to work with The Situation.

CONTESTANTS: You couldn’t have at least gotten Pauly D?

Filming is taking place at the Wharton Center on Michigan State University’s campus, and the episodes will air on YOBI.tv later this month.
