“There needs to be a special word for the combination of a cheap fake tan and fat thighs.”
I expressed that view on Twitter early this evening. Thanks to @SophieAG I now know there’s already such a word: Snooki.
This class act’s name is Nicole Polizzi (pictured), though she goes by the nickname “Snooki” and “stars” in an MTV reality TV program called Jersey Shore.
Watching the trailer tells you everything you need to know.
According to The Hollywood Gossip:
She fake-tans and acts like a bit of a skank. Then again that sums up the whole cast, so what are you really gonna do. That’s just what she does…
Nicole has made headlines already … for having brown skin. Like for real brown. Not tanned, like she’s been rolling in the mud or something. Yech.
Apparently Snooki is such a skank that advertisers have pulled out of the series.
“I just have one thing to say to Domino’s, Dell, UNICO and all the other haters out there: Fuck you! If you don’t want to watch, then don’t watch.”
Snooki added: “Just shut the hell up! I’m serious… Fuck you!”
UNICO, the Italian-American organisation that claims the show perpetuates negative stereotypes, plans to keep pressuring sponsors to boycott the show.
“She is not an embarrassment to Italian Americans. She is actually an embarrassment to the entire human race!!!!” UNICO said of Snooki in a statement.
Apparently Snooki’s idea of the ideal man is the Guido stereotype.
Given the monumental appropriateness of naming an entire sub-class of humanity after this woman — and I do mean sub-class — other suggestion faded in comparison.
