'Sopranos' Star to Obama:

Turn Off Jersey Shore!

5/7/2010 9:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Sopranos" star Steve Schirripa has a serious bone to pick with Barack Obama -- all because the Prez is watching "Jersey Shore!"

Sopranos star Steve Schirripa's message to Obama -
After ripping the reality cast for being "a different species of Italian," we asked Steve what he thought about Obama giving the "JS" crew a shout-out during the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

Let's just say ... Steve isn't too happy with The Prez -- check out the clip.

relax, Obama is probably watching so he can personally study the effects (post graduate) of the Bush era "No child left behind" and to determine how wide spread social welfare truly is, after all that jersey shore group are the most in need

REALLY? He's anti-Jersey Shore after starring as a murderer in a show that did some of the most unflattering characterizations of Italian-Americans EVER?

Obama has never watched Jersey Shore. And probably has the slightest idea who they are. He has has writers who wrote those jokes for him.

I agree with j05baker and have to add in to the haters - President Obama is very, VERY smart and if you let go of your hate, you just might be able to open your eyes to that.

I agree. Get rid of those fake Italians especially the short one with the big hair who's actually Chilean. They're giving all italians a bad name.

Hey Princess Ginger,



There is a big difference between an ACTOR playing a character and a bunch of idiots being themselves. Even though Obama had the jokes written for him and has probably never seen the show, Schrippa has a point!. Obama shouldn't even be pretending to know who those fools are.

PLEASE cancel Jersey Shore!! These losers don't deserve the attention they are getting! I'd much rather hang with the cast of The Sopranos!
