UNICO: Snooki's an Embarrassment to Humans

12/30/2009 12:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Snooki is an "embarrassment to the human race" -- at least according to one pissed off group of Italian-Americans.

It's the latest insult in a furious back-and-forth between the "Jersey Shore" star and UNICO -- the Italian American organization pressuring sponsors to bail from the MTV show.

Snooki had lashed out at the group during an interview with Steppin' Out magazine, saying "I just have one thing to say to Domino's, Dell, UNICO and all the other haters out there ... F**K YOU! If you don't want to watch, don't watch. Just shut the hell up! I'm serious. F**K YOU!"

Re-enter UNICO, who proclaimed, "She is not an embarrassment to Italian Americans -- she is actually an embarrassment to the entire human race!!!!"

Your move, Snooks.

All of this criticism is too much! Jesus, they're just people. Yah, over the top, but most 20-somethings are anyway. These organizations just need to lay off and let the kids live the way they want to. I don't find them offensive at all. Stupid, sure, but offensive, no.

If a TV show was making African-Americans look like buffoons, Al Sharpton would be at their offices with a mob of protesters. The country would be outraged. Obama might even speak out against it. Well, because they are Italian-Americans it is fine, right?

All this attention is the only reason I even watched the show! However, it is not offensive to anyone. This is no worse than the Real World or Big Brother. These folks need to get over it.

I agree with her. Piss right off UNICO. I'm pretty sure this girl was born in America so she isn't even Italian-American! She's just American. Why doesn't anyone understand how this hypenating of your Americanism works?

I think most of the people who complain about Jersey Shore have actually never seen it. It's not nearly as bad as all of the hype surrounding it.

How horribly unprofessional for UNICO to make such an awful disaparaging remark about Snooki. I don't mind if they object to stereotyping, but to say she's an embarrassment to the human race is totally out of line! I'm going to write a complaint to UNICO.

Other poster is right, Jersey Shore is no worse than Real World or any other show on MTV.

@Buster - Get over yourself. Did you not watch Flavor Flav on Flavor of Love? I didn't see anyone protesting that. Or how about 'I love new york'.
