Jersey Shore‘s Jwoww Wastes No Time In Calling Ronnie a ‘F*cking Faggot’

It was only through the surreptitious release of unseen footage from the first season of Jersey Shore did we find out cast member Ronnie Magro spit out some anti-gay epithets (sorry to ruin the surprise, but it was “fucking faggot”) at a boardwalk enemy. But on last night’s premiere of the MTV series’ third season, it appears Jenni “Jwoww” Farley got in on the F-bombs. And totally cribbed form his script. (Warning: Spoilers ahead.)

I’ll spare you the episode recap, but let’s just say the cast of guidos and guidettes returned to Seaside Heights for another summer of drunken hook ups. Snooki brought along a friend from home, who promptly got wasted and fought with Sammi, and then all hell broke loose with Sammi and Jwoww throwing down. But not before Jwoww — if our reading-through-MTV’s-bleeping is accurate — called Ronnie a “fucking faggot.” (It comes around the 1:26 mark.)

[flv:http://media.queerty.net/jerseyshorefag.mp4 http://www.queerty.com/wp/docs/2011/01/jwoww00.jpg 650 400]

(NB: Why are we so sure she sad “faggot”? Because there were two words bleeped, and the first was obviously “fucking,” and the second one clearly begins with an “f” and ends with a “git” sound. So unless MTV is now blurring works like “fairy” or “fathead,” it’s definitely “faggot.”)

Isn’t the the same cast of misfits that LOL’d all over national television at the trans woman who hit on The Situation? (You know, the one referred to as a “tra-nade”?) For which MTV eventually apologized? And, yes, it’s also the same group of reality stars who promised they won’t bully other people, what with Vinny’s It Gets Better video and all.

Perhaps equally as terrible as Jwoww’s word choice is what happened afterward: nothing. Not one person, at least not in MTV’s version of editing, told Jenni she was in the wrong, and that she shouldn’t use those words. (Maybe it happened afterward? Hah.) Nope, not even Vinny Guadagnino — who created his own line of t-shirts to fight bullying, and threw a launch party where he told bullies to fuck themselves — said anything. You’ve been living with a bully, Vinny, and you didn’t take any opportunity to confront her. Coward.

I sure am glad to see we’ve learned so much since last summer. Do we at least credit MTV for bleeping the word, while letting “slutty ass bitch” make it through?

Now if I’m wrong about what Jwoww said, and MTV is willing to release the uncensored clip, I’ll eat my words. Otherwise here we are, yet again, peddling this shit to kids.

      Whenever MTV wants to claim that it has helped the gay cause they never cease to use the fact that Pedro was in The Real World. They think that this gives them carte blanche to hire, promote, and push their stars that are overtly homophobic.

      The fact that being called a “faggot” is the worst name a male can be called in society speaks volumes.

      If anyone on Queerty, wants to say that being called a “faggot” is no big deal then you are basically brain dead. My worst memories of high school is whenever a sign up sheet was passed around a class room, always the word “faggot” would be penicled-in next to my name. It was always a great feeling to be passed the sign up sheet and see how highly I was though of.

      It was awful, and we need to hold everyone accountable who uses this slur either gay or straight.

      You’re totally right. Also, let us remember it was Snooki and Jwoww who were spotted dancing all night long with a gay couple on an episode last season, insisting “That’s real love…that’s love.” Jwoww made a mistake in her word choice. But there is real animosity in that house and in the heat of the moment, words fly.

      Hopefully she learns from this encounter, but please don’t insinuate that either of those two girls is homophobic.

      I can guarantee half of the people on this board frequently use the word bitch or cunt or slut, and yet they are not misogynists (and those are EXTREMELY loaded words).

      Well not to defend her using that language at all. But also remember that it was that girl that hung out with gays on one season and had a rainbow flag next to her bed that she got at a pride celebration that she displayed there the entire season. Additionally she said some good things about gays every so often. So what she said, sucks and is fucking idiotic, however, I wouldn’t class her in the gay hater catagory.

      JWOWW IS NOT HOMOPHOBIC. SHE ONLY CALLED RONNIE A FAGGOT BECAUSE SHE KNEW IT WOULD GET UNDER HIS SKIN- THEY WERE FIGHTING AND HE CALLED SNOOKI A LOSER. HE IS THE ONE WHO LIKES TO THROW THE WORD ‘FAGGOT’ AROUND, AS THE WRITER OF THIS ARTICLE POINTED OUT.

      Faggot DOES imply being anti gay. If it doesn’t …WHY SAY FAG? Because being gay is the worst thing one can be? Unless gays stop thinking they DESERVE to be the punching bag, you’ll get nowhere. Gays ARE indeed weak. You’re the only demographic who excuses anti gay gestures, words, even actions and pretend like it’s not anti gay to make yourselves feel better. Fag has a very direct relation to gay men, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

      Yes, there is absolutely no correlation at all between gay teen suicides, bullying, hate crimes, LGBT rights and the fact that gay slurs are the only form of belittling tolerated in society. No correlation at all.

      Face it, gay people have grown all too accustomed to being disrespected. To the point where some of you all don’t even request respect anymore.

      The moment society respects us for who are are, is the day we see full equality. Until then, ignore f*ggot being the worst possible word one can be called (with out consequences) all while you can get fired in dozens of states simply for being gay. No correlation at all, eh?

      if you like being called a faggot, that’s your deal man, but don’t go redefining the word into this term that is completely devoid of gay relations. That’s being weak and delusional.

      I can only imagine those excusing this hate laced figure of speech are impressionable younger generations of gays whom I sincerely hope will brush up on your gay history.

      I was around during stonewall. I heard the fag chants during that era. It was as ugly then as the word is now.

      The word faggot derives from gay men being burned at the stake for who they inherently were. Yes, gay men were killed in the past (and even present) for people even suspecting they were gay. That word was used during which.

      The word faggot was the word used by one of the monsters who killed Matthew Shepperd in a slow, painful, agonizing death for being who he inherently was.

      The word faggot is the daily words of torment that drove gay 12 years olds to take a loaded gun and blow their brains out.

      Many gay, transgender, and yes, even woman have been called fags to their faces while being taunted, harassed, fired, bashed and killed.

      That is the weight that word carries. It’s not a whimsical “stupid” or “ding dong” or “jerk” or “douchebag” it’s a word with HISTORY behind it.

      The moment you use that word, regardless of who you use it to or in what context you use it, you are grouping yourself AND your every day lingo with those past hateful stains on history. No spinning that.

      Those of you excusing this heavy words usage cannot turn and battle gay bullying in the same breath. You simply can’t in one post call for remedies in school systems to combat gay bullying and the high gay suicide rates, all while excusing this word being used in flippant manners. That is a completely counter productive message as the two are very much so related.

      There is a right and wrong in everything in life, and the word faggot has no subtext to it. It is wrong and people using it often know it is wrong, hurtful, and heavy hence their desire to go there. It’s our jobs to educate people to not have to go there, because that is a dark place.

      Why are some of you so defensive about her rightfully being called out for using an offensive word? You may not find it offensive, but a good majority of people do.

      No one is calling her a homophobe for saying what she said, but we are indeed saying her mistake should be addressed and highlighted to her so others, including she herself, can learn from this and not repeat it. Otherwise, why bother educating? evolving? or progressing as a human race if we’re just going to kick rocks everytime someone does or says idiotic things. Change is seen through education. The few of you getting defensive over her being called out for saying the F word make me suspect. You’d rather it go ignored with out it being acknowledged as the crass word it is. Sorry. That’s not gonna happen. As one of the people above said, this word carries more meaning behind it than most other juvenile jabs.

When gay soldiers have people with signs at their funerals saying they deserved their death with this word plastered on those signs. When people have been burned alive with this word in the background being yelled. It’s more than a God damn word. You should be ashamed of yourself and your values. The rest of us will not go silenced. The gay community has been silenced long enough. It’s time for us to own our voice and stand up for our convictions. Your desire to argue for arguments sake by inserting every offensive word that has ever been uttered as a way to JUSTIFY this words usage shows your ignorance for the short sighted ploy it is. You expect the gay community to overlook a foul mouthed person on television screaming the F word because some other gay person once said another offensive word? So that justifies derogatory gay slurs? Let me guess, you also qualify gay activism as an “agenda” right dear? You must have yourself convinced gay folk are a lot weaker than we really are.

It’s usually the PERSON behind the word that causes the real pain. This article is a waste of time, but if you want to spend time on it, PLEASE let me know why you are letting “Davey Wavey Vagina Monoglue” off the hook for using the word “retarded”. There is no such thing as a hierarchy of hurt. Faggot is not less harmful than retarded because there is no way to quantify pain.

      Sandwich, with attitudes like yours, the black community will never see gay struggles for what they are. You probably excuse people around you who use “faggot” then complain “WHY DON’T GAY PEOPLE GET EQUAL RIGHTS?”
      and I’m pretty sure if she said a derogatory word toward blacks you’d be first in line asking for her resignation and demanding her entire family be fired of their jobs. It’s amazing when black gay people suddenly are the first to excuse homophobia because of their own homophobia.

      @Sandwich: Considering how worked up you are over her being called out for using this disrespectful, hateful word, I think you have some personally issues with gays and possibly being gay that you need to resolve. Like others have pointed out, did you really think the gay community would let this slide? Your black, has the black community ever let a negative tone comment toward black people ever slide? No? well guess what, gays have finally found our back bone and we will not be stepped over as we were in years past. I applaud people who call out homophobia for what it is, even in language. Our movement is not at a stand still anymore, it’s at progress and to achieve full equality we must be educating and constantly teaching. We will never let the word f*g slide. Ever. If that’s going to work you up, it is going to be a long, miserable life darling because the gay community finally has some courage behind it’s belt, and that courage to call people out is not going anywhere anytime soon.

      The word is not part of the gay community. It’s a word used by those outside the community and hostile to it. It’s not our word. They can keep it as a symbol of their hatred towards gays.

      @Sandwichisahomophobe: It’s amazing that you are quick to infer that I am a homophobe because I am black. You lump all of the black community together, despite your obvious ignorance on the facts. I am not a homophobe, but most certainly you are a racist. You want to have some backbone…then don’t be afraid to look at your own faults and stop relying on tired stereotypes to fuel your arguments. Jwoww is not a homophobe. She has frequently sited the gay community in interviews and on the show. Like I SAID, she made a mistake but this article is unfair and mislead as it does IMPLY some sort of animosity towards gays.

      The comments on this board alone reveal the true nature of many in the gay community who are willing to lash out at others, despite a lack of introspection and awareness of their own harmful words.

      It is an ugly word. A deep rooted word that those who have personal ties with it will long tell you it is as ugly as it sounds, and forever will be ugly. It’s caused many a pain, turmoil, and agony and has the stench of historical stains on it.

      No manipulative, calculating attempts to sugar coat the word will work for the millions who detest it.

      As of recently, it’s a word with the cold blood of gay children on it’s hands, and for that reason alone, it should never be brushed off as a figure of speech.

      I applaud those who stand up for what is right in our world and for all humanity.

      @Sandwich: Funny I called you a “Ho” and I assume you are a man.

      You seem to be the only one who thinks the word belongs only to females.

      Thanks for making this thread all about race now too, maybe…just maybe if you had shut up the comments wouldn’t have once again devolved into bashing “the black community” whatever that is.

      Stop defending bigots you moron.

      Oh wait I called you another name and now you’ll say that’s a slur too.

      @Kev C: totally agree Kev C. if you use the word f-g, you do have some disdain for gays. whether it’s subconcious or not, it is there. I say this as a lesbian female who had a straight female roomie not long ago who thought the word dyke was totally appropriate to use at every given opportunity. my other straight female friends thought it was vile, even in context of humor and not hostility they found it unnecessary given the multitude of words that could be substituted. well, like some on here, I just figured her saying “what a dyke” jokingly never had meaning behind it until our falling out recently when she certainly used dyke to my face and it most definitely was not in a joking manner. I learned a valuable lesson that day. people’s words are a direct reflection of their thoughts. when someone says dyke or fag, they know it stings and it’s hurtful. that’s why they say it. and I’m really sick of all straight people being lumped up with the small minority who use gay slurs. most self respecting straight people past the age of 18 don’t go around calling people dykes and fags. they don’t. again, the ones who do are not the ones I surround myself with any longer.

      You guys don’t know the half of it. Me and my partner at the time were in Seaside-Heights it was a hot Saturday afternoon the boardwalk was jammed. So we went into a bar on the boardwalk it

      was also jammed it was about 3pm. There happened to be a body building contest going on. Me and my partner whom was white, I am black, we sat at the bar and we had not been seen by the bartender he was extermely busy…

      There were people at the bar, whom knew the bartender, and they were talking, somebody remarked about a black body builder who happened to be on stage, the bartender still had not seen me somebody said “jeez that guys muscles have muscles” ( this was in 1984 I’d like to see him today ) anyway the bartender still not

      having seen me, replied ” oh that nigger, he competes every year he’ll never win in here ” and then he saw me, talk about awkward , I have not been back to the Jersey Shore since, because I live in Canada now, and not because of what he said.

      THANK YOU for posting this video! I seriously thought I was the only person who noticed this!

      I’m trying to bring awareness to this blatant homophobia. I’ve created a video clip which shows exactly what she said – WATCH IT HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsrZkLYEyDQ. I’ve also been tweeting “JWoww” with this video asking for a statement.

      Everyone who is offended by this – FOLLOW me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/LaurenRepson). I’m seeking answers from MTV, and especially JWoww herself, who coincidentally tweeted her “support” for gay marriage recently.

      @Davey Wavey’s Vagina Monologue:

      Hi all, I saw this discussion after watching this episode online and saw two words bleeped (on close captioning) when I thought it weird only one needed to be bleeped out, the one being “f**king” – the second word I thought I heard was “fake”. I caught that discrepancy instantly and rewound the clip to see what I’d missed (I re-watch & try to read their lips). That’s when I realized she must’ve said “f****t” – and that ENTIRE fight instantly took on an entirely new meaning than what I’d thought had the word been “fake”. Ronnie looks totally freaked at that point, like he’s about to bolt or something.

      But my intention of making a comment here is maybe to help provide a perspective from a 100% un-hating, comfortable-among-gays straight man. I can not fathom how a person could hate anything/one to the point they feel the need to destroy it/them.

      I never saw “f*g” or anything of the like written in by anyone’s name or my own growing up – I don’t think it wouldv’e been a “prank” tolerated by any with whom I grew up. Now, I know I was raised in a very rare environment, however even in this environment where everyone respected one another & celebrated differences – “f*g/g*t” was heard as a derogatory insult, used frequently by others; and one that even I am guilty of having used. It was just a word. Yes, true – yet I never realized something until reading these points-of-view of so many emotionally invested people here – of how totally ignorant (literally ignorant) I have been of the weight/magnitude of using this word. It’s an ignorance that I am confident those I grew up with were subjected to equally.

      Someone pointed that out here – that this is a word chosen in the heat of argument, as a “heavy-weight” punch – a kind of, knock out blow to be victorious in clenching that argument’s “last word” & win the argument.
      Ok, now that opened my eyes…and it makes sense now why this is one of those words that are truly damaging to the point of utter destruction.
      So why is this accepted?

      I also am glad to have been educated by the person who posted the belief that this word’s use is the virus that keeps this hate infection spreading throughout our society. I believe the majority of the world is basically ignorant of its ramifications, as I had been. The posterd said something to the effect of: why would we (gays) ever be given full acceptance/rights by anyone who holds zero respect for us?
      Then after that, he pointed gays themselves for allowing this to continue – that it required action from the gay community to end this…and this may be absolutely right on the mark.

      I was taught not to ever fight, but that if I was attacked – to defend myself & my honor by any means. And establish myself respect as well as self-respect.
      If I’d have had the recipient stand up against me when I was guilty in the past of using “f*g” upon them – I’d have thought a good, long second time about doing it again. Out of respect for that person. And out of disgust of myself for stooping below mongrel-level.

      I anxiously await the day our species finds Enlightenment (we do have this ability in each of us).

      You all need to stop. Jenni JWOWW has been very supportive of gay rights,and has vocalized that. We can’t have melt downs everytime someone gets in a verbal confrontation with another person, especially someone that’s not even gay. I think we’re way to ultra sensitive as a community. Can’t you find something else to bitch about?
