Oh come on now! This is ridiculous! Calm down, already!
Italian-American group Unico National wants VH1 to axe their new show, My Big Friggin' Wedding. They are accusing the network of once again of perpetuating a stereotype of young
Andre DiMino, chief media executive and past national president of Unico, has come forward to publicly slam Sally Ann Salsano, who acts as executive producer on the show as well as another fave of the organization's, The Jersey Shore.
Miz DiMino released a statement denouncing all of Miz Salsano's contributions to reality television, stating:
"Stereotyping and slurring young Italian Americans means big, big bucks for bottom-feeder networks like MTV and VH1. No one does this better than Salsano, who's done more harm to the perception of young Italian Americans than everyone before her, combined. It's hard to believe, but Salsano actually tops the damage she did to the Italian American community with Jersey Shore with her newest pile of garbage on VH1."
Hey, sticks and stones, lady!
Fact is, Sally's just pointing the camera. These kids are doing all the rest!
Seems to us you're just embarrassed by your own kind! How's about you quit going after the networks for putting on these shows and reach out the actual people on them to ask why they act they way they do?!
Betcha a pickle pizza they say it was just how they were raised though! Salute!
