Apparently, Jersey Shore star Nicole Polizzi (a.k.a. "Snooki") isn't worried about those negative stereotypes.
When Steppin' Out magazine asked her what she would say to all the companies -- including Domino's and Dell -- who have pulled advertising from the controversial MTV reality show about Italian-American 20-something "guidos," she had a simple reply.
"I just have one thing to say to Domino's, Dell, UNICO and all the other haters out there," she yelled. "F*** you! If you don't want to watch, don't watch. Just shut the hell up! I'm serious... F*** you!"
UNICO, the Italian-American organization that first claimed the show perpetuates negative stereotypes, has no plans to stop pressuring sponsors to boycott the series.
"She is not an embarrassment to Italian Americans -- she is actually an embarrassment to the entire human race!!!!" UNICO said in a statement.
Italian-American civic groups and advertisers aren't the only ones bashing MTV's series. Even the New Jersey beach town that is home to the series said this week that it doesn't "solicit" or "promote" the filming of Jersey Shore.
