Last week, we learned that Rutgers University paid Jersey Shore's Snooki $2,000 MORE than Nobel/Pulitzer Prize-winner Toni Morrison to appear at the school.
Now, Rutgers is getting some serious backlash from parents for inviting the hard partying, Jersey Shore star to talk at their institution.
Here's what Rutgers parent Nester Delgado had to say about it:
"It's disgusting. Next year, is it going to be J-WOWW or The Situation?"
More from parent Christine Getz:
"I don't think she's a good representation of a role model for my kids."
But why are they so mad, you might ask? Here's some of the advice that Snook gave students during her appearance:
"When you're tan, you feel better about yourself"
"Study hard, but party harder."
And here's what Rutgers University Programming Association's president Ana Castillo had to say about it:
"We're trying to provide different kinds of experiences to students."
Hmm…we could understand why Rutgers parents are upset, but Snooki DID write a book! That's gotta count for something, right?
Do U think Rutgers made a mistake by paying Snooki to appear at their institution?
