"Jersey Shore" Girl Punched (VIDEO): Snooki Hit On MTV Reality Show

Posted: Updated:

MTV knew it was courting controversy with its new reality show Jersey Shore, which stars eight of the "hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos" who live and party together for a summer, but a whole new level of criticism is sure to come when they air the epsiode in which one of the stars, Snookie, gets punched in the face by a random man at a bar. (Click HERE for more information on the assailant, a New York gym teacher.)

At the end of the episode tonight MTV shows a teaser clip of Snookie getting punched out and then lying on the floor of the bar. The next shot is of a man in handcuffs being escorted to a police car.

MTV is attempting to defuse the growing storm by showing an anti-violence PSA after next week's episode.
