The Jersey Shore's Vinny Visits Columbia

Posted: Updated:

Gym, tan... class?

Jersey Shore cast-member Vinny Guadagnino made a surprise appearance at Columbia on Wednesday. The subject of his discourse? Bullying.

The Gothamist has more:

Vinny Guadagnino was on campus at Columbia University's Hamilton Hall yesterday to give a quick guest lecture in Professor Diane Vaughan's sociology class, "Mistake, Misconduct, Disaster." Vinny, who was last seen proclaiming "eff the government, I'm part of the 99% right now," gave a lecture on...bullying. (It's not the first time he's talked about it, either.) Apparently, Vinny works with the anti-bullying group Do Something, and was invited to the class by a student who's an intern at the organization.

Vinny discussed his personal experiences with bullying during the lecture.

According to TMZ, the lecture got heated when a Columbia student asked, "What gives you, as a cast member of 'Jersey Shore,' the right to interrupt this class and then lecture us on setting a good example?" Oof.
