Vinny From 'Jersey Shore'

Ivy League Deviance Expert

11/3/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vinny Guadagnino speaks at Columbia
The apocalypse is nigh -- yesterday, a "Jersey Shore" cast member gave a guest lecture at an Ivy League school ...

It actually makes a lot more sense when you know the full story -- sources tell TMZ, Vinny Guadagnino was invited to speak in a Columbia sociology class on "deviance" ... a subject on which Vinny is a recognized expert.

Vin spent a lot of time talking about being bullied growing up. It went really well -- we're told students even applauded at the end -- but crap got real when Vinny opened the floor up for questions.

We're told one observer bluntly asked, "What gives you, as a cast member of 'Jersey Shore,' the right to interrupt this class and then lecture us on setting a good example?"

Vinny -- who wasn't big on speech and debate in high school -- was predictably stumped.

He's so smart: "My score was decent. I had a plan that if my score was really well [sic], then I might of just went to Yale or Harvard... But it was just mediocre. I can get into law school,"

I dont understand any of you people. why do you feel the need to jump on the bandwagon of negativism and insult people for being famous? dont you see that simply by looking on this website you are indirectly supporting all pop culture? The real people you should look to criticize is yourselves and ask what you are doing to make our society a better place. dont just complain, come up with ideas and apply them to your own lives. My point is, stop criticizing these people for being self-absorbed if most of you apply these same egotistical and selfi*****titudes in your own lives on a daily basis. change yourself and you wont find the need to insult other people to raise your own self-esteem.

I don't see much difference between Columbia students and Jersey Shore cast members. Too much hype for nothing.
