New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is not a big fan of the stars of the former MTV reality series “Jersey Shore”, specifically Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. As Fox News reports on October 1, JWoww is not a fan of Christie mainly because of his stance on gay marriage.
JWoww was asked her opinion on the New Jersey governor while leaving dinner on Monday night with former cast mate and friend Snooki. JWoww quickly expressed her opinion of Christie.
“He’s retarded. He’s a disgrace to New Jersey, just like we were.”
Jwoww, who is a strong supporter of gay rights and marriage equality, is not a big fan of Christie’s continual opposition of marriage equality in the state. After a Judge Mary Jacobson ruled that the state must allow gay marriage on September 28, Christie’s administration asked New Jersey’s top state court to take an appeal on the judge’s ruling.
Governor Christie’s appeal wasn’t surprising as he made it clear that he feels gay marriage should be left up to the voters. Christie vetoed a gay marriage bill that passed the State Legislature back in 2012 stating the following:
“An issue of this magnitude and importance, which requires a constitutional amendment, should be left to the people of New Jersey to decide.”
But because of the historic Supreme Court ruling back in June which overturned the federal Defense of Marriage Act, Judge Jacobson sided with six same-sex couples who argued that the state of New Jersey was blocking gay and lesbian couples of the benefits now allowed by the federal government.
Christie’s argument is that it is the federal government who should be held accountable for denying the benefits.
In any event, JWoww apologized for her choice of words about Christie, but she still strongly disagrees with him. She took back the “retarded” part, but still finds “him disgusting and judgmental.”
