Jersey Shore double standard
Jersey Shore Season 3 Episode 5 (Drunk Punch Love) which aired Thursday night has not only been the season's most emotional and heated, but also the most controversial episode. In a clip that MTV has been promoting for weeks now, Sammi punches Ronnie in the face. In an after show interview released today (Friday) Ronnie admitted he deserved the punch for "what he put [Sam] through in Miami."
But the fact that MTV aired the clear act of violence against Ronnie raises the double standard question. It was only a year ago that MTV decided after outrage from viewers and critics to edit out the infamous punch Snooki took from a Queens gym teacher in a Seaside Heights bars. Previews of that clip caused so much controversey MTV released a statement saying, in part, "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. MTV has decided not to air Snooki being physically punched in next week's episode." What then is the difference between airing Sammi punching Ronnie and Snooki's punch from some random shmuck who just wanted 15 minutes of fame? Was Sammi's punch to Ronnie somehow not considered an cheap jerseys act of violence because she's a girl hitting a guy? Is it because they're both paid members of the Jersey Shore cast? Is it because Ronnie later said he somehow deserved it? Furthermore, why has the most recent incident of violence on Jersey Shore not caused more viewers to become outraged? I'd argue it's not a Ronnie or Sammi relationship problem or a Jersey Shore problem and it's not even an MTV problem. It's a problem that society has established this as a double standard that it is somehow acceptable for a girl to punch a guy for something she's enraged over, but yet it's criminally unlawful when it's the other way around. A request to MTV for a comment on why the network opted to air Sammi's punch to Ronnie rather than edit it out was not immediately answered. Jersey Shore Season 3 airs Thursdays on MTV at 10pm ET/PT. What are your thoughts is there a double standard or is there a difference between Sammi punching Ronnie and Snooki being punched by a guy? Leave a comment below.
