'Jersey Shore' Italy Trip --

Italian Group FURIOUS!

1/25/2011 3:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The "Jersey Shore" road trip to Italy will only serve to make the locals look like "buffoons and bimbos" ... this according to a very pissed off Italian-American organization.

TMZ spoke to a rep for UNICO -- a massive Italian American interest group -- who tells us they're furious with MTV's decision to shoot Season 4 in the old country ... saying, "People used to go to the circus to see the freak show – that is what this will be."

The rep adds, "It will not only hurt Italians but all Americans … their outrageous, reprehensible behavior will make us look like buffoons and bimbos."

As TMZ first reported, UNICO was the first group to call for a boycott of the show -- claiming it's a "denigration" of Italian Americans.

In total agreement with UNICO. The Jersey Shore sideshow should be set adrift on a raft with a heavy enough supply of hair gel and spray-on tan to slowly allow them to sink into oblivion.

this is going to backfire on the jersey shore....the real italians don't consider these so called 'italian-americans', italian at all..or any other 'italian-americans' for that matter.

they are going to be so out of their element, its going to be embarrassing.

this group can't control what another group does. that's not what this country is about. doesn't matter if you like what they stand for or not, they have the right to do as they please.

What these people fail to realize is that not all of the Jersey Shore cast are even Italian! lol Also, the fact that they are going to Italy to shoot season 4, wouldn't that bring more money to that area of Italy with tourism? These people need to think before they open their mouths.

Would it be wrong to hope that they crash in the Alps and have to eat each other?

As an Italian American from the beautiful boroughs of New York, we do not own those people. Expecially Vinnie's uncle.

I have to agree with them. As much as I love to watch them do ridiculous things in the US. This will just make all American's look stupid.
