Perhaps the most damaging thing to have happened to American-Italian relationships ever has been the decision to shoot an entire series of Jersey Shore in Italy.
The Guidos and Guidettes of that unbearably hideous reality show are, quite possibly, the most horrid people who have ever lived (okay, maybe a slight exaggeration -- Hitler was probably, on balance, a bit worse) and, as you can imagine, the proud natives of Italy aren't exactly happy to be associated with this posse of drunken, vomiting, urinating Noo Joysey Knackers.
But it would appear that they still have plenty of fans -- in their home state.
