What Are Italians Saying About Jersey Shore?
With the airing of the Season 3 finale last Thursday, the cast of “Jersey Shore” is now about to hit up Italy to begin filming the show’s fourth season. And not to anyone’s surprise, Italians aren’t exactly thrilled to welcome them, even though the show just started airing there yesterday. Italians seem to be quite familiar with the show and are saying some pretty harsh things… here are a few examples
1. One Italian newspaper columnist wrote: Quote, “They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized.”
2. An Italian TV critic said that he’s “afraid” of what this season may do to the image of Italy abroad, which he described as, quote, “already weakened.”
Although rude… it gets much worse:
3. A commenter on Italy’s MTV page said, quote, “When I see this, I wonder whether Osama Bin Laden had a point.”
