Swift fans took to Twitter and YouTube to complain about a shirt that read, “#more boyfriends than T.S.” Though the shirt didn’t mention the singer by her full name, fans took offense.

About 130 Swift fans signed a petition at Change.org demanding the shirt be removed from Abercrombie & Fitch store shelves. The clothier eventually did just that.

Some Swift fans started an effort to flood A&F’s PR line with calls, to the point where the automated message on the line states, “If you are calling regarding the Taylor Swift T-shirt, please note this is no longer available.”

The company tweeted about Swift fans’ distaste, also:

Hey #swifties we no longer sell the tshirt. We <3 Taylor’s music and think she’s awesome!
