Jersey Shore offensive? I'm more disappointed in my 'paisani' than the show's producers. Katelyn Lobascio, paisani /event planner for Jersey Shore's Joe's Bar appearance, thinks their appearance is "Ideal". Are MTV and others a bit disingenuous? A quote from the of paragon journalism, Red Eye: Robt. Thompson, Dir. of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture at Syracuse Univ. notes that all the controversy hasn't negatively affected the popularity of the "Jersey Shore"--just the opposite. He said, "The things the show is being accused of--being politically incorrect, being crude and being offensive--that's what this show is about." He continued, "Just because the cast is saying offensive things or behaving badly doesn't mean viewers are insensitive or condone it. Viewers are watching because the stories are compelling and the show gives them a feeling of superiority." Using his rational, would you patronize or support a bar who had an Amos & Andy festival?
