Italy to Jersey Shore Cast: Fuggedaboutyou!

by at . Comments

Here's the situation: Italians are far from pleased that Jersey Shore cast members have invaded their country.

The show didn't even start filming in the region until today, but the backlash against Snooki and company has been severe across various publications, with one reader of the MTV Italia website going disturbingly far and writing:

"When I see this, I wonder whether Osama Bin Laden had a point."

Whoa there. Not even Sammi is that annoying.

Verbal grenades are being launched in the direction of JWOWW and Snooki.

In the Rome newspaper New Notzie, meanwhile, columnist Roberto Del Bov wrote of Pauly D and his housemates: "They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized."

The country's most widely read publication, Corriere della Sera, went on to describe the reality stars as a group with "slicked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity."

Exactly! Don't worry, Italy, you'll grow to love these people. So much so, we hope you never send them back.

I WISH PEOPLE WOULD ACTUALLY KNOW THE FACTS BEFORE PLACING INFO. ANGELINA IS HALF POLISH, HALF ITALIAN; DEENA IS ITALIAN; MIKE IS ITALIAN; NICOLE IS 100% CHILEAN, BORN IN CHILE OF CHILEAN PARENTS AND LATER ADOPTED BY TWO ITALIANS WHO GAVE HER THE NAME POLIZZI... PAULIE IS ITALIAN; RONNIE'S MOTHER IS PUERTO RICAN 100% & HIS FATHER IS ITALIAN (THO SOME SITES CLAIM THE REVERSE WITH HIS PARENTS); SAMMI & VINNIE ARE ITALIAN. ALL ARE OVERRATED, OVER-IDOLIZED TOOLS. PERIOD.

@ Sissy
I hate to burst your bubble but yes, most of the cast members all Italian !!!!
Pauly DelVeccio is !!
Mike Sorrentino is !!
Sammi Giancola is !!
And Ronnie Ortiz-Mago is !!
PS. I am 100% Italian. On my Mother's side her maternal Mother is from Northern Italy (hence, blond hair-light eyes) On my Mother's maternal Father side, he was from the central region However, on my Father's side, both of his parents are from Sicily: dark hair, dark eyes.
To insinuate that Sicilians are NOT Italians is a flat out LIE !!!!!!!!!!!!
Get your facts straight & also, when commenting, try to compose a more coherent comment.
WOW!

I am 100% Italian & I am damn proud to be too.
What is wrong with slicked back hair (something my grandfather sported back in the 20's & 30's & boundless love for their families.
Yes, Italians love their families, I don't see that as a bad thing.
As far as being called a Guido - well yes, that is what a lot of Italian are & the rest are like Vinny's family (very traditional)
I am having a hard time trying to understand why the people in Italy are so offended by?
Other than that's what people seem to do now-a-days ... everyone is *offended by something* & the whole politically correct bull crap.
Give me a break!
I am delighted to see these kids proud of their Italian heritage, just as I am -.-

Don't be stupid. The publication is called "New Notizie" and instead of just to think about translating it you actually could have done it. It's more like "The Newest News" or something like that and not what you think.

I'm not defending these abhorrent caricatures of ignorant American culture, but you are quoting a publication called "New Notzie". I don't think the title needs translation and shouldn't be quoted as a widely legitimized publication.
