Jersey Shore - SnookiDomino’s Pizza isn’t the first sponsor to back out of supporting MTV’s controversial …but they are the first sponsor to release direct statements regarding one of the reality show’s cast members. After Nicole (“Snooki”) Polizzi waxed poetic about their decision (“F—- you! If you don’t want to watch, don’t watch.

“We have no issue with MTV or the programming it airs,” a spokesperson stated. “Just like viewers have a choice of what they want to watch, advertisers have a choice on what shows they want to advertise.” Domino’s Pizza has no problems with MTV, but that doesn’t mean they care for the Shore’s Snooki. “There’s no need to get into a war with this young girl, because tick tock, her fifteen minutes are almost up.”

Jersey Shore has been dubbed as “wildly offensive” by the New Jersey Italian American Legislative Caucus.

MTV maintains that the cable network does not intend to stereotype or offend in any way.
