Abercrombie and Fitch, under fire recently for failing to cater to plus-sized shoppers, says it's no longer selling a T-shirt that mocks pop diva Taylor Swift's prolific love life.

Fans of the singer-songwriter, known as Swifties, used social media including YouTube and a Change.org petition this week to complain about the baggy T-shirt that read: "#more boyfriends than t.s."

"We set the shirt (put it on sale) at the end of February, marked it down in the middle of March and it is no longer available," said the fashion retailer in a statement.

It did not state whether the T-shirt had sold out or whether remaining stock had been withdrawn from stores.

Earlier this year its chief executive Michael Jeffries apologised after the resurfacing of a 2006 interview in which he suggested his chain, which stocks jeans no bigger than US size 10, was only interested in selling to "cool kids."

Swift, 23, notorious for writing hit tunes about ex-lovers including singer John Mayer, actor Jake Gyllenhaal and, most recently, One Direction teen idol Harry Styles, briefly modelled for Abercrombie and Fitch a decade ago.
