"Jersey Shore" has officially lost another sponsor -- Dell Computers -- and this time, the PC Company is accusing the show of "ethnic bashing."

Dell Pulls Ads from 'Jersey Shore' Over PC Claim

Dell -- the 3rd sponsor to run from the 'Shore' -- tells us they will "block" their commercials from running in future episodes of the show, claiming they don't "condone or support ethnic bashing in any form."

This once again opens up prime advertising space for 8-Minute Abs, "Cheaters," bedazzled mensware distributors, Supercuts, 7-Minute Abs, Chaser hangover prevention pills, K-Swiss, chest wax, anger management instructional DVDs, 6-Minute Abs...

How far have we deteriorated as a society that this stupid show with these ignorant fools is such a hit. If it wasn't bad enough that the Kardashian sisters and Paris Hilton are considered "stars' today. Now we've been given these idiots and are led to believe that these are the prototypes for our young Italian American? It's really insulting to our collective intelligence that these people are made out to be celebrities. The scene that had the guy punch out the girl was disgusting to watch. He should be arrested, but then again, it was probably just what the producer's wanted. Disgusting indeed.

Wait a Minute    

They don't represent anybody but themselves. This is what goes on down there and has been for years. You're just seeing it for the first time. Go there yourself, and have a good time.

dell sucks anyway, i bought a computer off them, thinking i was getting a video card with dual dvi outputs for dual monitors. they give me a splitter and tell me they don't sell that card for that model. but it was on my invoice for that model. i wasted a whole day with customer service complaining about why on my invoice it says dual dvi and i get 1 dvi and a splitter, Dell sucks ass.
