More opposition is directed toward MTV's latest reality show "Jersey Shore". This time it came from the real Jersey Shore, a beach community called The Borough of Seaside Heights that wants nothing to do with the show.

"The governing body wants it to be known that they did not solicit, promote or participate in the filming of this show," said John Camera, borough administrator, in a statement. "Furthermore, the Borough does not condone any discriminatory remarks against Italian Americans, domestic violence or the promiscuous and otherwise bad behavior portrayed on the show."

Before the Borough, New Jersey Italian American Legislative Caucus had proclaimed their dislike. In an open letter to Viacom demanding the show to be yanked out of air, the legislators called the show "an offensive, inaccurate portrayal" of Italian Americans and said it's "contrary to New Jersey's efforts to reduce hate and bias-related crime."

Advertisers had started pulling off their commitment, but despite the lack of monetary supply and criticism, MTV has stayed firm behind the show. One of "Jersey" cast, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, even has a future plan for them. He said that it would be "awesome to do The Hills versus Jersey Shore, like Real World/Road Rules Challenge."

Any REAL Italian hates this show on MTV. The kids in the MTV show are so desperate to be "cool" and "hip", when they really just come across as desperate. Greased up and shallow- wow, deep.
