"Just shut the hell up! I'm serious. ... F--- you!"
The 21-year-old, whose real name is Nicole Polizzi, openly refers to herself as a "guidette" on the program featuring eight roommates sharing a Seaside Heights, N.J., summer house and is shown guzzling suds and throwing down booze-addled dance moves on the floor at clubs.
Earlier this season, MTV pulled footage featuring Snooki being socked in the face by a man at a bar in a video clip that went viral.
Italian-American organization UNICO has been putting pressure on companies to yank their ads from the MTV program, referring to the eight castmates as "bimbos and buffoons" and taking aim at Snooki in particular.
"She is not an embarrassment to Italian Americans -- she is actually an embarrassment to the entire human race!" the group said in a statement, according to Usmagazine.com.
