Jersey Shore

Hates 'Jersey Shore'

12/28/2009 6:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The real Jersey Shore wants nothing to do with the real trashy "Jersey Shore" -- and now, an entire NJ beach community is banding together to deflect blame for the MTV reality show.

The Borough of Seaside Heights -- yes, the entire borough -- has issued a statement informing people they did not "solicit, promote or participate" in the making of "Jersey Shore" .. even though that's where the majority of the show was taped.

Translation: Don't blame us!

As TMZ first and often reported ... anyone with a connection to New Jersey, Italian heritage or a moral compass has lashed out at the show for being offensive.

Some sponsors have bailed, but just like Pauly D's hair -- MTV is standing firm behind the show.

I am not from that area, but I watched the show one time and i felt so sorry for the people who live around there because I am pretty sure it does not represent the hard working people who live and play in that community. This show is soooo trashy and tastless. I love reality tv but this show is the worst. No class at all. I hope they get taken off the air and then consult with the people who live in that area so that they can portray the community in the right way!

I find it truly disheartening that television has turned into a peepshow for us to watch just how nasty Americans really are. We watch these idiotic reality shows and make rude, immature, no talent crybabies into stars. For all of you who have grew up watching these shows and think this is entertainment, try watching something else. A written TV show. A movie. Read a damn book for Christ's sake. Quit watching these nutty reality shows and get a clear vision of what entertainment really is.

"keepin it real"    

All these lowlives are just a bunch of tools this show is for simple minded morons it couldnt appeal to anybody higher in evolution its amazing that these 4 or 5 nobodies would put an entire state in such a commotion i think its all media hype and the fact of the matter is nobodys eiven thinking for more then a second of these deadbeats then being anymore influential then a piece of sandpaper. Its truly insane that anybody would think that these 4 geeks would or could possibly represent an entire heritage and culture. If anything they give a bad name to human beings more so then italian americans.

I have seen several episodes of this program and cannot believe how shallow these people are. I know they are young (although "situation" looks like he is in his forties) but come on! My entire neighborhood was Italian when I was growing up (not in New Jersey, but Texas). I cannot even imagine those Italian mothers, and especially, fathers raising kids who acted like this. They all grew up, married and had children and grandparents were a part of the influence on their grandchildren. No one obsessed on fixing (jelling up) their hair, their tan and their muscles because the men were too busy actually working at a job and their wives were working and raising children, many times with the help of their husbands. Somehow I don't see that happening with this group. They are all too selfish.

it's entertaining. if you don't like it, don't watch it. South Park is degrading. blame south park or sarah palin for inhumane treatment of wild endangered animals that are hunted.

Let's see...How would I describe the members of MTV's FakeReality show, Jersey Shore?

I know! UGLY, FAT and ILLITERATE. I have NEVER watched an episode, the promos for the show were nauseating enough. It grosses me out to think anyone of these f'ing idiots were Italian.

I have live at the "Jersey shore" my entire life and I can assure you we DO NOT act, talk, or look like these people. We actually hate when these kinda people (BENNYS) show up at our shore.

I am from NJ and sorry to say these characters are not far from many of those who go to the Jersey Shore. I spent a few weekends with this type of crowd and this IS how they act.
