'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.

to all the douchebags on here trying to compare The Soprano's to Jersey Shore, hmm....one was FICTION and the other is REALITY TV, meaning it shows people that actually exist. I'll let you libtards figure out on your own which is which. You Commies just can't handle the fact someone took an honest shot at your Messiah.

#19, this recession came about under Bush's watch.If you had half a brain this problem wasn't created by this administration. But as usual.. a minority has to come in a clean up a mess. You are probably a Sara Palin fan, someone who's as intelligent as a slug.

Jersey Shore is crap, just like most reality TV, but it doesn't mean that all Italians are like that, or that all are like on the Sopranos - it's TV, so-called entertainment, nothing more. If people choose to watch a bunch of low-class trash, that's their prerogative.



I do agree with Steve though - Obama should be spending more time working on this country's problems instead of going on tv shows and flying all over the place on the taxpayer's dollar. Why is he still campaigning!? I'd like to know how many days of his presidency so far have been spent in Washington. This mistake is going to be very costly for the USA...one term baby!

The recession was caused by the housing bubble, which was orchestrated by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. The fought Bush at every turn. Bush wanted stricter regulation, Frank and Dodd wanted none, end of story. Everything started to decline as soon as the Democrats took over Congress in 2007. Look it up, butt plugs.

Now here's an Italian with a good head on his shoulders. Glad to see some people aren't afraid to say what they think!

Schirripa's kind of Italian is one who smashes his girlfriend's face into his gear shift, never apologizes, and tries to get out of community service at a battered women's shelter saying he wants to work at a cancer center instead. Hey doosh - your victim didn't have cancer, she had a vagina. I hate this woman hater. No wonder Leno loves him so much - he's another woman hater.

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?

He only killed one person and Tony made him do it. His whole character was based on a guy that was not your typical gangster. Next time talk about something you have a CLUE about.
