DON’T BACK DOWN, MTV, KEEP “JERSEY SHORE” ON THE AIR
We just don’t understand why advertisers are quitting “Jersey Shore,” Italians are objecting to “stereotypes,” and NJ lawmakers are even getting into the act by appealing to MTV to cancel the show. Why is everyone taking this fluffy show so SERIOUSLY? These kids do represent a segment of the population and why shouldn’t it be presented on TV? Appalachians didn’t try to get “The Beverly Hillbillies” booted off the air – and that was a SCRIPTED show. These kids are just living their lives on camera and if they want to call themselves “guidos” – why NOT? A lot of people happen to think “guidos” are very appealing. This political correctness is getting WAY out of hand. Hopefully, MTV is enjoying the controversy.
