Jersey Shore's Ronnie -- The Homophobic Tirade

2/15/2010 6:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

WARNING: Video contains explicit language.

Ronnie Magro from "Jersey Shore" didn't just fight in front of the cameras -- he also spewed some disgusting homophobic slurs during a violent altercation on the boardwalk ... and the footage has finally come to light.

It all went down minutes before Ronnie's first brawl on the show -- in which he and another bar patron could be seen talking trash to each other and then exchanging blows on the shore in front of their girlfriends.

But in the new never-before-seen footage -- Ronnie can also be seen and heard calling the guy a "f**king f**got" and a "f**king queer."

The footage was never aired on MTV.

A source from the production company behind the show who hasn't seen the clip tells us, "There were several gay staff members that worked on the show and Ronnie always respected them and everyone else."

That's nothing to do with homophobia and everything to do with talking smack.

Obviously, it would be a different matter if the guy Ronnie was venting at was gay, but he wasn't, therefore... smack talk.

I think the real issue in the clip was the domesttic violence one. He clearly shoved his girlfriend in the video. Who cares if he was calling someone names. This is the kind of guy that seems to like pushing women around.

Why would he say it in FRONT of a camera? Can anybody be stupid or drunk enough to forget there is a camera in front of them? If he made a mistake and regrets it I guess it's not that offensive, I loved that his voice got flinty when he said the f word... I'm suprised there are only a couple haters that had to come and piss on gay people in general just because this story gave them half an excuse, I figured there would be dozens of them, but just a few.

Isn't it kind of absurd to claim Ronnie is homophobic. If he had gone on a rage using the n-word and calling someone a "dirty black-a#%ed n-word", would anyone ever suspect he is racist? Give me a break.

It's common for people to insult homosexuals and even assault or bash them. Who among us can honestly call that "homophobic" rather than just frat boy hijinks or free speech?

Lets see here , if i were in charge of the usa i'd have a man made island built & tell all the gays & lesbos they won a trip there & nuke it by plane & torpedeo it by submarine & Harvey can join em end of story! Ronnie you da man :-)

Was the guy he was yelling at gay? If so then the comments were homophobic. If the guy wasn't gay then his comments weren't homophobic, just stupid comments from a moronic drunk. I'm sad to say that "gay" and "queer" are common put-downs that don't necessarily have anything to do with someone's sexuality. As a gay man, I don't appreciate having my sexual preference used to mean "stupid" or "jackass". Only Ronnie can truly judge what's in his soul (or if there's anything there at all...)

And this is a surprise?
So many people need more education.

who cares    

someone who is homophobic is AFRAID of gay people. why is this term thrown around so much? it is completely misused, there is a huge difference between a bigot and a homophobe. but, at the end of the day, all that matters is: who cares about ronnie (or anyone for that matter) from "the jersy shore?" stop writing about these fame whores. please.
