We know where Taylor Swift won't be shopping anymore.

Mall staple Abercrombie & Fitch has pulled a T-shirt from its shelves, reportedly after it incurred the wrath of Swifties everywhere. (Didn't they learn anything from the whole Kanye West episode?)

The blasphemous shirt, a white tee emblazoned with the words "#more boyfriends than t.s.," sparked a petition on and at least one passionate YouTube video, according to Buzzfeed. The petition called the garment "hurtful."

The clothing company told the New York Daily News that the offensive top was not on its racks for long. A&F "set the shirt at the end of February, marked it down in the middle of March, and it is no longer available," a spokesperson told the newspaper.

Abercrombie recorded a message for people calling to complain: "Thank you for calling Abercrombie & Fitch public relations. If you are calling regarding the Taylor Swift T-shirt, please note that this is no longer available."

The hoodie and jeans retailer also tweeted out a message to the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer's fans: "Hey #swifties we no longer sell the tshirt. We <3 Taylor's music and think she's awesome!"

Swift herself, who was photographed for Abercrombie & Fitch's 2004 Rising Stars campaign, is not likely to forgive and forget anytime soon. Even though her list of ex-boyfriends, from Harry Styles to Joe Jonas to John Mayer, is rather long.

After Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made an innocuous joke about Swift's love life when they co-hosted the Golden Globes in January, Swift didn't find it funny. At all.

Fey told Swift from the stage, "You stay away from Michael J. Fox's son," referring to the "Family Ties" star's teenage offspring.

Swift responded during an interview for Vanity Fair's April issue, when she was asked about the incident.

"You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, 'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."

Expect a song about this soon.
