MTV’s Jersey Shore premiered this past Thursday and has taken the world hostage in the subsequent days. In that time, Italian-American groups have cried foul over the series’ stereotypical depiction of their race and, Domino’s has backed out as a sponsor. Cast member Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is taking it all in stride and eating up the attention. Not since The White Rapper Show‘s John Brown, has a reality character sparked such a love him / hate him debate through sheer douchitude. Personally, I love the guy. Somebody hand him an excessively-tanned six-packed Emmy statuette immediately.
Entertainment Weekly has a short interview with The Situation where he talks about his newfound fame, the show’s backlash, and what it truly means to be a "guido." (EW)
