'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.

Its really sad when people feel the need to put down your own kind (Italians against Italians). There are different stereo types of Italians as most other countries. Just because these kids like to tan, go to the gym and do their laundry does not make them bad people. These are young adults we are talking about here...they will most likely change as they mature. For all of you hating the cast of Jersey Shore, you spend a lot of your time reading and writing about them. STOP HATING....

Omg, someone wrote Obama's jokes just like someone wrote the script for that fat-ass to cash in on his show..."Sopranos"...full of crooks..yep, that is why this country is failing..people like him.
How long did it take Bush to tear apart this country? How long does it take to fix it? Repeal the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act! And cancel all reality shows! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gramm-Leach-Bliley_Act

I highly doubt the president is watching Jersey Shore. Does Mr. Schirripa realize that all of his jokes were written by a team of speech writers?

8. 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?

Ok Ok ok so if we would of had a show of fat italians like Steve losing weight maybe he would of been happy because it would given him the chance to try out for the show. Dammm lard ass he is huffing and puffing on a simple walk down the street. What a lard ass. Yeah and the sopranos really gave the italians something to be proud of.

HELLO!!! J-Wowww and Snookie AREN'T EVEN ITALIAN!! This show is so bogus and stereo-typed. My Sicilian ex-husband and two generations of his family lived in Jersey and act nothing like them, or the Real Housewives of New Jersey. I think the producers take liberties with these so-called "reality" shows. People can't really be that stupid and want to reveal it to millions of viewers, can they?

Jersey Shore are who they are period. They give Italians a WAYYY better name than this idiot who starred as a killing mobster! How is that a good image for Italians??

Does everyone who watches Real Housewives think ALL California women are like that or ALL New York women are like that. No they are shows showing a particular group of people. Anyone bothered by the "image" they think the Jersey Shore kids are giving to Italians is prejudice because all it is showing is how SOME Italians live not all Italians. Its a reality show people - get over it!
