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."

Normally, I would never comment in here, but after seeing that something like 49% of the people who voted, don't see him as being homophobic, I needed to respond. I'm so sick of people throwing out the word fa**ot, as if they're calling someone an ass*ole, jerk or whatever and then saying they're not homophobic, because they didn't intend it as anything gay-related. I'd ask the same people why then do they not say the n-word instead? I'm sure they'd say because it's disrespectful to black people and a terrible word. Why then do they feel it's so okay to use fa**ot when it's so disrespectful toward gays? plain and simple, if you use Fa**ot, you're homophobic, just as if you use the n-word, you're racist.

Christopher Alan,

Using your logic then isn't someone who calls a person an a$$hole being bigoted towards actual a$$holes? What if I'm proud of my a$$hole and you insult it by calling me an a$$hole? There are many illnesses and diseases that cause the body to jerk and twitch. So by calling someone a "jerk" you are in fact being a bigot towards people with these disabilities, correct? The examples of absurdities and hypocrisies goes on and on.

And fyi, people don't say the "N" word out of respect for blacks, they don't say it because our hypocritical PC crazed Nazi media will tar and feather you and destroy your life and career if you say it. Even though blacks call each other that daily.

Jags, I disagree. I think Kellie made a great point. Society is so insanely sensitive to the gay movement that we're basically labeling anyone that doesn't agree with gay marriage as a bigot, ie; Carrie Prejean, even though Obama has for whatever reason escaped this same title.

But her point in not liking a particular restaurant and being insulted for it is a great example of how ludicrous society has become.

Harvey,

Dude, we get it. You are pissed off that the President you voted for, and the voters of California, don't want you and your fellow buttpirating partner to get married. But just because we don't want you to rewrite the bible doesn't mean we are "homophobic." And why are you constantly attacking people (minus Democrats) that disagree with you? Aren't you supposed to be the party of open arms, forgiveness and intolerance??

Homophobic, obnoxious and (usually) drunk jerks like this are not exactly uncommon in New Jersey, and the Boardwalk is the New Jersiest place there is.

Whatever, I can see why a striaght person wouldn't understand that homosexuality isn't a choice. I mean, yes you can choose to have sex or not. But the attraction, the raw pull you str8ies feel when you look at the opposite sex, that's what I feel when I look at the same sex... I spent years trying to feel that for the opposite sex and couldn't. I kind of get upset when I post on these comments cause it's not me to be so weird and narcisistic or whatever else the problem is. But it's annoying that people don't understand the first part of this post, because it really wasn't a choice for me, at first it was my worst nightmare. But after a decade or so and the (most) of the world seeming to understand it got better. I guess reading these posts kind of sent me back to the feeling I used to feel when I was younger. I don't know what part of the country these haters are from, but I can garauntee theyre putting gay people in their real lives through hell, and that upsets me.

Nonametoday,

I'm one of those "evil, homophobic hillbillies" that doesn't support gay marriage. I'm so evil that I wish you all the best in your life and in your career and I support your right to have a civil union where you receive every single financial and legal benefit of a married couple. I'm so evil and bigoted that I just ooze with hate, as you can tell.

Nonametoday... Excellent post. Sadly, it seems the majority of the posters in here are too stupid to grasp a word of it.

Really Pissed    

I have been reading these post and most of you keep saying that he was just saying those things "to piss that dude off". So I guess Ronnie was tring to piss off that dude enough to fight him. Or maybe Mtv set that up so it would make good tv. Seems to me that dude was on the other side of the Boardwalk tring to walk away.Its just crazy how Ronnie played the bi**h card for tv, like he had no involvement. I think Ronnie is Gay. What kind of Grown man goes by Ronnie, That works for an 8 year old. a stright man goes by Ron.

Shock! Jersey trash = homophobic?

I never would have guessed. The language and threats expressed could have resulted in hate crime charges. I understand why MTV hid this footage because it would them in a LOT of trouble.

Sugarpants, yeah I realize it's a bit much. I don't think I made it seem like just because you don't support gay marriage youre like that, maybe I did. Thanks, and it is a bit suprising, and I've already been thinking about how I need to lighten up. But you can't quite get around the fact the fact that the people that really are hatefully homophobic agree with you and tout your points as well. But yeah I need to lighten up, I've had too much free time or something.

Geez    

When straight men go around talking on the phone all the time like they are girls...then...

When straight men act lame... then...

When straight men drive big trucks and think they are bad...perhaps...

When straight men don't catch a football correctly... you could be...

When straight men GOSSIP... you ARE a...

When straight men are racists ... you's ah...

When straight men hit women... you're one.

When straight men complain about hard work...

When straight men wear flip flops...

When straight men do up in the latest fashion and basically look like fashion victims...

When straight men.

But if you are homosexual, and you're a good person, a great fair, un-elitist, un-racist, beautiful person, you're then - fantastic! Keep on keeping!

I wouldn't consider it homophobic. However, I do think its ignorant and hateful. Unfortunately these words are used too freely these days, as in this case, as an insult to a straight man.Guys need to start becoming more aware of the terms they use..

Is it safe to say .. the steroids caused his ignorance
