'Jersey Shore' Sparks Controversy, Death Threats

'Jersey Shore' Sparks Controversy, Death Threats

The cast of Jersey Shore shows off their assets during a party at The Quarter in the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The new MTV reality show only pulled in 1.4 million viewers (compared to 2.1 million this past premiere of The Hills) but with the buzz currently surrounding the show, viewership should start to soar. Protests have already started, death threats reportedly have been received and advertisers are starting to pull out. All the more reason to watch these train wrecks on TV!

And for a bit of fun, try the fun Name Generator to see if you can beat out Mike’s “The Situation” at UnlikelyWords.com.

A new episode of Jersey Shore airs TOMORROW (December 10) @ 10PM ET/PT on MTV.

BTW, is anyone else obsessed with The Situation and Snookie? Can’t wait to see her get sucker punched!

  • dundies

    who’s the orangest of them all? i think the chick on the far right

  • Elliot

    I bet this will be one of America’s shows that gets broadcast on some channel in Europe like Rock of Love and Tool Academy, so our neighbors across the pond can have more great perceptions of what the U.S. is “really like.”

  • rona

    stuff like this should be cancelled away

  • http://singleparentlovematch.com/ Beth Bubbles

    I luv this show, more please!

  • ck

    This show has made me change my opinion on Abortion.

  • Sam

    why would you add the last line? you want to see a girl get punched? that is messed up.

  • xxx

    I don’t watch this cr*p but wow… just look at the picture. They seem like a group of well educated, classy, talented, level minded individuals!!

  • camie

    okayy. I’m from New Jersey, and i go to seaside almost every summer…and no one behave like that…there might be one or two but they are always riduculed. This is an inaccuarate presentation of the Jersey Shore, and it is also stereotypical. They are a disgrace. I’m kinda happy they’re deserving death threats…they should cancel this show.

  • camie

    an it is a disgrace to people from Italian families…like me. Cause i don’t behave like those idiots, they’re not even from jersey they’re from new york.

  • Christina

    I said I would watch the show. But I ended up watching every showing of this show. It’s probably my new obsession.

  • Stef

    @nicole: UMMMM have you watched the show? that girl out of all of them deserves to get punched..if a guy has to..then so be it

  • Stef

    and i agree i have family members living down in new jersey and NOBODY acts like that. but none of them are technically from jersey anyway so there you have it.. trashy/classless people who are hungry for attention and fame…….

  • Sarah

    @ck: That’s so wrong!! I hear you though…just double bag it.

  • yipee!

    all i see is a bunch of tools and sl_ts.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    @camie: you’re fcuking lying. the jersey shore has been lengendary for yearssss for having these douchebags. you can look that shiit up on youtube. you’d find tons of videos.

  • jennifer

    This show is entertaining and I hope it doesn’t get canceled .

    btw-Real World DC looks lame as hell

  • http://seriouslytoo.com happy girl

    i’ve been to jersey and you have not seen trash til you’ve been to jersey. maybe kentucky might be worst. sorry jersey folks, it’s true. but why the death threats, what is going on that makes it get death threats?

  • http://seriouslytoo.com happy girl

    i agree it makes italians look bad just like all those mafia movies and sopranos. not cool. and i’m not even italian but i would be embarrassed to see this portrayal if i was.

  • Cort

    so you’re excited to see a girl get hit in the face by a guy? real nice. yet when it was rhianna it was terrible and scandalous. your pathetic and just lost a visitor to your site for being a pig. i’ll be sure to spread the word.

  • Jayvon

    Heck I’m a brotha and I know that the Jersey shore is just like that MTV show. If you have never been out there you have no business even talking on this thread about a bad portrayal. Some of you on here have not been out there and have no clue what your talking about. This show is an exact portrayal of the jersey shore, Ive been out there twice and the douche bags that come out there to party are not mistakable.

    The show is entertaining, but don’t take it to heart because its life whether you like or not. There are certain jigaboo shows i don’t like on the air yet understand that they have a right to be on.

  • Brandie

    us jersey people does not like this show at all. they’re not real italians whatsoever. fake tans & weird looking hair. they look like douchebags. lol

  • Brandie

    they looks like douchebags. FAKE tans. us jersey people go to the beaches to get our tan. the show is so stupid. mtv needs to take it off. it makes us italian people look bad too

  • Brandie

    @happy girl: we’re not trash. i guess you haven’t been in all of new jersey

  • http://www.youtube.com/jolentini jolentini
  • http://seriouslytoo.com happy girl

    Brandie: you are right. There are nice towns in Jersey – just there is a lot of this Jersey shore kinda trashiness but that is not the entire state I guess.

  • christine


    Why am I not surprised about the death threats?

    ……………………………………………..
    @camie:
    THERE’S ALOT OF CRIMINAL ITALIANS IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY & LONG ISLAND, NY.
    DUNNO MUCH ABOUT JERSEY…. I PERSONALLY, GROWING UP IN NY, DIDNT HEAR MUCH NEGATIVE THINGS ABOUT ITALIANS IN JERSEY, EXCEPT FOR THE WHOLE ORGANIZED CRIME THING…. BUT, HEY THERE’S GAY ORGANIZED CRIME IN AMERICA TOO, I HEARD.
    BUT I DO KNOW FOR A FACT THAT ITALIANS R THEEE WOOORST IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY & MAYBE LONG ILAND, NY……..BY ALL ASPECTS. IT’S TROUBLING TO KNOW THAT ALL THE GOOD IRISH GET TAKEN BY ITALIANS…. PATHETIC.
    AND BY ALL MEANS NEVER EVER DO ANY BUSINESS IN ANY WAY WITH ITALIANS OR EVEN ANY OF LONG ISLAND… THEY’RE COMPLETE FRAUDS!
    THE PARTS OF WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY THAT R SATURATED W/ ITALANS HAVE THE WORST ECONOMIES…. AND WESTCHESTER COUNTY USE TO BE THE RICHEST COUNTY IN NY.
    —————
    DONALD TRUMP, U MADE THE WORST MISTAKE BY CREATING BUILDNGS AT THE SOUTHERN TIP OF WESCHESTER COUNTY WHERE U KNOW THE WORST OF THE WORST DOMINATE… U LISTENED TO THOSE LOSER ITALIANS AND NOW U HAVE NO BUSINESS THERE ……

  • whatever

    WTF color of human being are these “people”…I mean really…really! Nasty!

  • julie

    as an italian-american, this is so embarassing

  • camie

    OKAY for the people sayin that the jersey shore is full of douche bags i really can’t understand it…cause i basically live there and yes i agree there are a couple of them….BUT NO ONE LIKES THEM. The jersey shore is nothing compared to the beaches in florida or in California….not to be mean or anything but there are a lot of “guidos” there too. So, first of get the facts rights. kay. MTV is a load of Sh** and the people who believe this stuff are just ignoraant fools

  • camie

    @Christian
    OKAY YOU KNOW WHAT JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK ITALIANS ARE “PATHETIC” THEY ARE REALLY NOT…JUST BECAUSE MOST OF THEM BEHAVED LIKE THAT IN NY DOESN’T MEAN THEY ALL BEHAVE LIKE THAT. I DON’T BEHAVE LIKE THAT….AND NEITHER DO MY FRIENDS. ALL THE JEWS I KNOW ARE STUCK UP AND B***** BUT I’M NOT GOIN TO SAY ALL OF THE JEWS ARE. AND AS FOR THE IRISH….MOST OF THE “PURE IRISH” PEOPLE…NOT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE MIXED WITH DIFFERENT CULTURES, ARE CONSIDERED TO BE LAZY….EVEN THOUGH THAT’S A STEREOTYPE…I’M JUST STATING WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK. SO DON’T BASH ITALIANS IT’S NOT GOOD FOR YOU….KAY?

    it’s a bunch of douches who think that they look good

  • Bastardus Grull

    Real Housewives of New Jersey was covered in pomade, silicone and sunless tanners. Same f/ucking state. Yet nobody got their azz cheeks in a bunch about it. Sounds like MTV is manufacturing controversy to push ratings.
