Oh man, it doesn't look like anyone but the Italian club scene wants the cast of Jersey Shore anywhere near their country!
The guidos and guidettes of the Jersey Shore have been getting less than stellar thoughts from a lot of sources across the board (we can only guess what the POPE is thinking!) in ol' Italia, but it doesn't seem to be affecting the cast's positive outlook on going.
Here's what's being said about the cast:
"They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized."
"[S]licked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity."
Grasso, a prominent TV critic for the same paper told the Wall Street Journal that he's "afraid" and that "the image if Italy abroad is already weakened."
"The last thing we need."
Wow, not so positive.
And that's not it. This extremely offensive comment was also made:
"When I see this, I wonder whether Osama Bin Laden had a point."
Really?? We can understand some of the other things said (specifically the 'outlandish eccentricity' one), but that's not cool. If anything, they're absolutely harmless distractions for most people, not terrorists. That's inarguably uncalled for.
Be a little more respectful of such a huge tragedy. Plus it's not like they'll be there forever.
Do U think they crossed the line, or are they right on??
