MTV Pulls The Plug On Violent “Jersey Shore” Scene

This week’s episode of “Jersey Shore” was supposed to be the one where viewers would see Snooki get sucker-punched by a drunken bar-goer, but after a sneak peek of the punch quickly garnered controversy and went viral as a gif, MTV has decided to pull the plug on airing the scene, calling it “disturbing.” Duh, of course it is, and so was the almost celebratory sharing of the gif, which the internet seemed to find hysterical. The network released this statement:

“What happened to Snooki was a crime and obviously extremely disturbing. After hearing from our viewers, further consulting with experts on the issue of violence, and seeing how the video footage has been taken out of context not to show the severity of this act or resulting consequences, MTV has decided not to air Snooki being physically punched in the face.”

Wait, wait. MTV took the video footage out of context to use as super-OMG-exciting teaser footage, is mad that viewers weren’t able to put it in context on their own, and now the network is going to pretend like the fight never happened? MTV needs to show the fight in context and not let what happened to Snooki be reduced to an internet meme, especially if it truly wants to make some sort of statement against violence. MTV suddenly getting skittish and pretending it has morals is a little too late, at this point — the episode should air as it was originally intended, in my opinion. [E! Online] Keep reading »

Who’s The Guy Who Punched Snooki?

Next week’s episode of “Jersey Shore” looks like it’s going to be pretty brutal—while out partying at a Seaside Heights bar, the lovely (??) Snooki takes a right hook to the face that sends her flying off her stool. Apparently, some drunk jerk had taken her drink and had been harassing her roommates, so she confronted him about it. The guy was apparently super intoxicated—bouncers had already told him to watch it—and he let his fist do the talking. So who is this guy who punched Snooki? Apparently his name is Brad Ferro and he’s a 23-year-old … (wait for it) … high school teacher. Keep reading »

Show “Jersey Shore” Pride With The Situation Fashions

Maybe dressing like a guidette isn’t your thing (we’re hoping to God), but you can still show your “Jersey Shore” pride with this line of T-shirts and panties. To recap: one character on the MTV reality show, Mike, cockily refers to himself as “The Situation,” which has something to do with his washboard abs. So when “The Sitch,” as Amelia likes to call him, started working in the local customized tacky T-shirt shop, you knew it would only be a matter of time before his “The Situation”-emblazoned boyshort creation would spawn an entire fashion empire. Well, here you have it. Show your love for Mike by throwing one of these tees over your surgically enhanced breasts (although he’d probably like it better if you weren’t wearing it at all).

Snooki Gets Sucker-Punched On Tonight’s “Jersey Shore”

MTV’s latest and by-far-the-greatest, “Jersey Shore,” has seriously ruffled some tail feathers. In addition to the death threats MTV staffers have been getting, advertisers like Domino’s are threatening to pull their commercials from the show. Well, tonight’s episode—which Amelia will be liveblogging, natch—sure isn’t going to help the situation. (Ha, that’s funny ’cause one of the characters on the show goes by the guido nickname “The Situation.” Anyhoo …) Tonight, a group of drunk guys keep bothering the show’s women. When our dear Snooki tells them to go away, one of the guys punches her in the face so hard she gets bruised and has serious swelling. Because of the violent content of the episode, MTV is airing a PSA afterward that says, “Violence against women in any form is a crime.” Still, some are saying that they shouldn’t air the footage at all. Snooki doesn’t feel that way, though. “It should be out there. Everyone should know that it can happen,” she said. “But also, a positive came out of it. It brought [the cast] closer together.” Commence countdown to the start of the show. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Bobby Bottleservice Wants On “Jersey Shore”


In this Funny or Die parody, comedian Nick Kroll’s alter-ego “Bobby Bottleservice” auditions for MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” In his audition video, he says he plans on using his winnings from the show (he’s under the impression it’s a competition with prize money) to buy a gold jet ski, as well as calf implants. Oh, and for those who are worried he might be a misogynist like Mike “The Situation” and Pauly D, no worries. “I say breasts because I love women and I don’t call them cans or big fat titties because I love my mother and I respect women.” Can the show get a ninth roomie please? [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »

Snooki Brings Her “Jersey Shore” Genius To YouTube!


This morning I struck gold. Snooki, my favorite guidette from MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” has a YouTube channel!

Anyway, Snooki explains what SnookTV is all about, above. I love her. Did I mention that I love her? I do. I love her. Keep reading »

MTV Publicists May Be Getting Death Threats Over “Jersey Shore”!


You didn’t have to be Italian to be horrified by “Jersey Shore,” MTV’s new reality show about a summer share house in the Garden State—it’s exactly what you would expect from the eight trashiest 20-somethings they could find, complete with free-flowing alcohol, macho posturing and dumbass nicknames.

But it certainly didn’t matter that producers edited the show so the slurs “guido” and “guidette” appear about 127 times in the very first episode. Unsurprisingly, New York magazine now reports MTV’s publicists are receiving friggin’ death threats, apparently from angry Italian-Americans. Keep reading »

“Jersey Shore” Is The Best Thing To Happen To MTV Since Music Videos


Will you remember where you were and who you were with the night “Jersey Shore” premiered on MTV? I will, because the show was just that friggin’ awesome. The show follows eight tri-state area locals as they spend the summer living, working, and partying together on the Jersey Shore. They’re all self-identified “guidos” and “guidettes,” which has offended some in the Italian-American community who believe those words are slurs. But the cast and producers insist that being a “guido” is a lifestyle — involving copious amounts of hair gel, fist-pumping, spray tanning, and drinking — that transcends race or ethnicity. Whatever. I call it entertaining. Keep reading »
