Pop Eater reports that Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino has teamed up with MTV’s “A Thin Line” campaign, a program that speaks out against LGBT bullying.
Guadagnino posted a video online announcing his support, stating “you’ll never see [Jersey Shore cast members] making fun of somebody for who they are or who they choose to love, especially if they’re lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.”
MTV’s “A Thin Line” campaign is a join effort with Facebook’s Network of Support that aims to raise awareness for LGBT teens and put a stop to anti-LGBT hate speak.
“There’s a thin line between free speech and hate speech,” Guadagnino explained. “No one should ever be made fun of, especially for being brave enough to be who they are. If there is one thing in the world that I hate on, it’s a bully.”
Hmm…we hate to be Debbie Downer here, but we’re pretty sure we’ve heard some f-bombs dropped on Jersey Shore… and not just of the four-letter variety, either. We love to see Vinny supporting this very noble cause, but hopefully this also means the cast has put an end to the occasional anti-LGBT name calling that happened during seasons one and two!
