mtv is being sued over ‘jersey shore’

February 18, 2010 | celebrity | editor | 0 Comments

The bad news for MTV is that they’re being sued by an Italian activist group for their negative portrayal of young Italians on the show ‘Jersey Shore’. The good news for MTV is that the two most famous people on the show aren’t actually Italian. The group says…

“The use of words like ‘Guidos’ and ‘Guidettes’ is racial stereotyping in the worst possible sense and they are portraying young Italian Americans in the worst possible light.”
“They would not try and get away with the same tactics if it was show full of young African American or Jewish kids so why is it acceptable to portray Italian Americans in this way?”

You’re in luck…

Jersey Shore stars J-WOWW and Snooki recently confessed that they in fact have NO Italian blood in them.
During an interview on Fox’s Strategy Room J-WOWW confessed that she is Irish and Spanish
while Snooki revealed that she is actually Chilean.

In fairness to this group, not all Italians do steroids and tan and get drunk all day. Many make spaghetti (or cannolis) and join the mafia. The rest throw pizza dough in the air and drive gondolas.
