Here’s A Lesson For You: Govone Who Punched ‘Snooki’ On MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore’ Is a Queens School Teacher

December 11, 2009

Our last “Jersey Shore” item, we promise, until the show is canceled.

Both theNew York Post and New York Daily News report Friday that the ape who punched tiny Nicole “Snooki” Polizza at the Beachcomber bar in Seaside Heights, N.J., is a school teacher.

The assailant is Brad Ferro, who was teaching at North Queens Community High School in Flushing, Queens. Now, the Post and News report that Ferro has been taken from the classroom and sent to one of the Department of Education’s teacher-reassignment centers, which are nicknamed “rubber rooms.”

A video clip of Ferro whacking Polizza on the controversial MTV reality show went viral.

Ferro got slapped with simple assault charges stemming from the incident. He was fined $500 and ordered to take anger management classes.

MTV ‘Jersey Shore’ Episode Where ‘Snooki’ Gets Punched Adds Fuel To Call For Boycott Of Show, New York Tabloids Report

MTV screen grabs from New York Post report on the punch episode

MTV’s “Jersey Shore” is back tonight, and the debate over the sleazy show continues, at least in the Big Apple media.

The New York Times, New York Daily News and New York Post all have follow-up stories Thursday on the reality show, with the latest rub being that one of the self-proclaimed “guidettes” in the cast, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, gets punched by some jerk at a bar in the Dec. 17 episode.

MTV plans to run a PSA after that installment saying that violence against women is a crime, and providing the number for the National Teen Dating Hotline, according to the News.

UNICO, an Italian American group, is calling for advertisers to boycott the show. So far, Domino’s Pizza and American Family Insurance have pulled their ads from “Jersey Shore,” the Post and Daily News reported Thursday.

The New York Times did a story on “Jersey Shore” in its “Our Towns” column. The piece quotes a guy we’d like to get in touch with, Robert Galinsky, who coaches reality-TV performers at the New York Reality TV School.

He postulates that our beloved Garden State has become “reality central” because of its diverse and feisty population, who’ve “got that chip on their shoulder because of New York,” he tells The Times.
