The above tank top is available at Bad Kids Clothing for $19.99 and you can grab it in pretty much any size and five different colors.

According to the pair of 26-year old party lifestyle and dance music enthusiasts, Swifties are mad with power after forcing Abercrombie and Fitch to take its own Taylor Swift shirt off the market, so they have no problem going after these small-timers.

“They keep telling me to take it off the site, but it wasn’t on the site, so I guess they wanted me to take down the picture [from Instagram],” Houser explains. “So I took down the picture–I don’t really care–and then they kept going. It got worse and worse.”
“Finally I just responded to one and I was like, ‘It’s gone, what do you want?’ And they were like, ‘Oh, you think just because it’s gone that this is over? Just wait until you see what happens to you.’”
If you think they’re blowing this way out of proportion for the sake of getting people to write about them and provide free exposure, then you have to admit they’re really going the distance with the proof, as evidenced by these samples they provided to Fashionista:
