Morning Quickies: Vinny From “Jersey Shore” Raps About Rape

  • Vinny Guadagnino from “Jersey Shore” debuted a rap song on YouTube yesterday called “Rack City Mix” with the lyrics “Actin’ like I’m raping it / F**k her till she fakin’ it.” After getting blased by the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN), Vinny pulled the video. He also tweeted, “Whoa! Some people really know how to take things out of context ! #LearnToListenToMusic …It was fun though!” Perhaps realizing that tweet was even more boneheaded than the initial video, Vinny then tweeted, “Sorry for offensive rap.I’m 100% against violence & work with many organizations to stop it. Will continue to do so.” Sigh. [Huffington Post]
