MTV pulls Snooki punch out scene from Jersey Shore

December 14, 2009 at 4:54 pm (MTV, News) (, , , , , , , , , , )


I don’t agree with violence against women – or against men & children – but this, is a disappointment of epic proportion. Not because I wanted to see anyone get hurt, but… Okay kind of, but MTV has been using that clip as advertisement for the show, and I think anticipation of that moment is a partial explanation for it’s exceptionally high ratings.
It’s a good thing that most of us have already seen the clip of Jersey Shore resident, “Snooki”, taking a punch straight to the face from some random club Guido. And it’s a seriously a hard punch, he probably knocked the spray tan right off of her.

I'm aiight


“After hearing from our viewers, further consulting with experts on the issue of violence, and seeing how the video footage has been taken out of context to not show the severity of this act or the resulting consequences, MTV has decided not to air Snooki being physically punched in next week’s episode. The show will still make it clear what events transpired, including the full aftermath.”
You can read more (and see the clip!) here.
I was watching Entertainment Tonight , and though it’s not document in that link, Snooki went on record saying she thinks it’s a good thing the clip gets aired, so girls know that something like that can happen to any of them… I don’t know. I think it can probably only happen to Jersey Shore girls.
