May 22, 2002: 11:38 AM EDT NEW YORK (AP) - Abercrombie & Fitch is coming under fire -- again. It's the target of several consumer advocacy groups for its latest merchandising strategy -- selling thong underwear with sexually charged phrases for children. The skimpy undies have the words "eye candy'' and "wink wink'' printed on the front. The retailer has been criticized before for its provocative ads and catalog for teens. And last month, Abercrombie (ANF: down $0.23 to $28.98, Research, Estimates) pulled a line of T-shirts that triggered protests from Asian groups who said they reinforced negative stereotypes. In the latest controversy, OneMillionMoms-dot-com and other groups say they've sent e-mails to the company to protest the thongs. The nonprofit Christian group, American Decency Association, is calling for a boycott.
