'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.

Hopefully they'll be FURIOUS enough to frame them all for murder and lock the juiceheads up in the same prison as Amanda Knox.

They will learn very quickly there is quite a difference between being an Italian from Italy and being born Italian in new jersey. It is a whole different world. I don't follow the show. Do any of them even speak Italian?

SERIOUSLY !!!!!    

UNICO National is SPOT ON with this!

Also ... they're an embarrassing representation of American "youth"!

Let us pray:
"God, I plead with you, don't let them go! Don't let them act like bimbos, HIMbo and drunkards! And if for some reason they DO go! Please God, don't let Snooki get snockered on vino! God, if you see that they need to to go to Italy, PLEASE! Don't let them open their mouths and utter sentences of stupidity. Amen"

I'm sending the Italian government an apology letter BEFORE they go over there. I mean, SERIOUSLY!!!!

Come on America, why you have to go to Italy to hide your own humiliation? Leave Italy out of this, especially those jersey shore bimbos. I will never understand America's stupidity.

Bravo already sent the Real Housewives of New Jersey and that was embarrassing enough. Need we send more Ugly Americans via MTV's Jersey Shore?

Calm down veryone knows they are just morons in their own right. We know they don't represent Italian-Americans. I think people around the world are bright enough to know that reality TV is pretty ridiculous as a whole. I hardly think they have enough of anything to represent the US as a whole. Come on people!
