Jersey Shore: Snooki Gets Punched

There are limits to what is publicly acceptable behavior, even in the realm of reality television. Even if you don’t particularly care for her, most people couldn’t help but agree that this episode just went too far. While attending a bar, Snooki herself was punched in the face.

The situation was quickly resolved, and thankfully Snooki suffered only minor injuries. However, the incident did spur on public discussion of violence against women. It also created plenty of buzz about just how far reality television shows are willing to go and made us wonder how much is actually set up and how much is actually real. In any case, many fans thought the staff should have gotten involved in order to protect Snooki.
