'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.

Im pretty sure the Jersey Shore crew are not the first Americans to take a trip to Italy. So therefore the American reputation has already been soiled by any so called "party animal" American who has been there. They wont be the first and they wont be the last. People need to rethink that they are representing only Italians, they are representing a sub culture of AMERICANS so stop getting your panties in a twist and give it a rest.

Really? You think that a bunch of ADULTS (let's remember that they are pushing 30) acting like they are 19 are going to make people want to visit ITALY, because of the jersey shore show.....you must not be familiar with Italy.

I think it is an excellent idea. Once they get down there and see how real Italians act, it might shame them into changing their ridiculous lives.

They don't even know who they (the Jersey Shore cast) are in Italy- my family was just here for the holidays- no clue. Definitely bad representation of Americans in general- although I hate to admit I'll probably watch that hot mess!
