Christie Wants NY to Take Back 'Jersey Shore' Cast

Gov Christie -- not a fan of the MTV reality show "The Jersey Shore."

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is still complaining about how his state is represented by MTV's "Jersey Shore."

Christie wants New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to "take back" the stars of the hit show, some of whom are from New York.

The show "parachutes out-of-control New Yorkers into Seaside Heights," Christie said at a town hall meeting on Tuesday.

Christie was apparently referring to Snooki, who is from Poughkeepsie and Mike "the Situation" Sorrentino, who is from Staten Island.

Last July, when asked about the show, Christie said he thought the show portrayed a negative image of the Garden State.

"Negative for New Jersey... It takes a bunch of New Yorkers, drops them on the Jersey Shore and makes them look like they came from (here)," Christie said.

Many Italian-American groups have also panned the show, deeming it offensive and reliant on crude stereotypes.
