Taylor Swift fans are continuing to attack companies that make T-shirts that refer to Taylor having had several ex-boyfriends.

You might recall last month that Abercrombie & Fitch pulled a T-shirt that read “#more boyfriends than t.s.”

Now, Taylor’s fans have targeted a tank top put out by online brand Bad Kids Clothing that lists the guys to whom Taylor has been romantically linked.

The shirt originally read, “Jonas & Till & Lautner & Mayer & Monteith & Gyllenhaal & Redmayne & Efron & Kennedy & Styles.”

The company has reported receiving death threats from Taylor fans. And this week, Bad Kids Clothing did agree to take off the name of Glee actor Cory Monteith, who died alone Saturday (July 13) in a hotel room.

In a statement, the company said, “We will not be removing the shirt from our store. We will however remove Cory’s name. This shirt is intended to be light-hearted and a joke—for those who can understand this type of humor.”

Bad Kids Clothing doesn’t find funny the death threats and threats of violence it has been getting.

“We will deal with the death threats and incredible slander from here on out, when necessary, with proper authorities as it is never acceptable to threaten anyone’s life,” the statement read.
