My hopefully future employer one day, E! News, has just reported that MTV has decided to pull the footage of Snooki getting socked in the face, allegedly, by gym teacher, Brad Ferro after receiving a ton of negative feedback from viewers, sponsors, Santa Christ, Jesus Claus, and Elian Gonzalez.
MTV issued a statement in which they said, “What happened to Snooki was a crime and obviously extremely disturbing. 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 not to show the severity of this act or resulting consequences, MTV has decided not to air Snooki being physically punched in the face.”
Well, there you have it. I guess I agree with them, but at the same time if we were forced to sit through 2 full seasons of “The Ashlee Simpson Show” back in 2004, surely Americans (sorry Canada) can handle this. Eh, either way sometimes it’s best to take the high road.
However, if it were up to me, I would just edit in the d-bag who hit her hitting a pop up clown instead of Snooki. See? There are ways around this.
What do you guys think about this? The right choice? Sponsor pressure? A Chrismtas miracle?
