'Jersey Shore's Snooki To Boycotters: 'F--k You!'

'Jersey Shore' star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi says she doesn't care about viewers and advertisers who complain that the show promotes negative stereotypes.

I just have one thing to say to Domino's, Dell, UNICO and all the other haters out there," she says to 'Steppin' Out' magazine.

"F--k you! If you don't want to watch, don't watch. Just shut the hell up! I'm serious... F--k you!"

Domino's, Dell and UNICO have all pulled out of advertising the controversial MTV reality show about Italian-American 20-something 'guidos'.

Italian-American brand UNICO, which has been the most vocal about the show, even blasted other companies who continued to support the program last week for funding "such a discriminatory, insulting and Italian-bashing program."

"I am urging our supporters to call these sponsors and demand they pull their advertising from Jersey Shore," said UNICO president Andre DiMino.

As for their response to Snooki's latest rant, UNICO says it has no plans to stop pressuring sponsors to boycott the series and puts out a classic one-liner.

"She is not an embarrassment to Italian Americans -- she is actually an embarrassment to the entire human race," says the company.

Domino's takes a different tact, but with much the same message: "Our first response was, 'What a classy young lady -- her parents must be so proud,'" a spokesperson tells 'E! News'. "There's no need to get into a war with this young girl, because tick-tock, her fifteen minutes are almost up."

The backlash has even prompted the New Jersey beach town that is home to the series to release a statement announcing that it doesn't "solicit" or "promote" the filming of Jersey Shore.
