When we last checked in with Jersey Shore, MTV’s newest reality show about horrible young people, the Italian media watchdog group UNICO was complaining that the show reinforced negative Italian stereotypes. Now, MTV is getting threatened with who-knows-what:
The MTV building in Times Square was getting crazy threats and they are in the process of hiring more security [and] bodyguards,” an insider revealed to Fox News. Those involved with the press for the show were particular targets — receiving threatening emails, abusive phone calls and even hurtful Facebook messages, says the insider.
I am shocked. Shocked that the producers of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, Date My Mom, Room Raiders, Next, and A Shot at Love 2 with Tila Tequila remain unthreatened/un-beat-down, while the producers of what sounds like the only entertaining show on MTV right now have to sleep with one eye open. Up is down.
