A Facebook page promoting the appearance of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” star, Snooki, at James Madison University March 3 featured racist and violent comments from students on its wall.
The comments were regarding an incident on the show where Snooki was punched in the face.
“The Facebook page became a place where students wrote positive comments about the violent guy that punched Snooki and how she deserved it,” Steven Eure, director of public relations of the University Board, which arranged the event, said to RadarOnline.com. “Their comments were cruel not only about Snooki but also directed toward the students that were excited that Snooki was coming.”
