The fake website has since been taken down

Teen apparel retailer Abercrombie & Fitch has emphasised an outlet website selling counterfeit clothing is not linked to the company.

The retailer drew an angry response from Twitter after the website address abercrombie-and-fitchoutlet.com describes cargo pants using a racist slur, according to TMZ. The pants were priced at GBP42.99 (68.25). 

The fake website, which has since been taken down, was believed to be selling A&F branded apparel at cheaper prices. 

"It is not part of our company," a spokesperson for A&F told just-style today (23 March).
