Not content with just f**king with minorities, A&F poked fun at redneck stereotypes too. Then-West Virginia Governor Bob Wise wrote to the company himself, saying: "By selling and marketing this offensive item, your company is perpetuating an inaccurate portrayal of the people of this great state. Indeed, such a depiction of West Virginians undermines our collective efforts to communicate a positive representation of the spirit and values of our citizens."
A&F responded not by pulling the shirt from stores, but issuing a statement saying "We love West Virginia." Way to go, guys.
