LOS ANGELES, La (FOX44) - The apocalypse is nigh - yesterday, a "Jersey Shore" cast member gave a guest lecture at an Ivy League school.
It actually makes a lot more sense when you know the full story. Sources tell TMZ, Vinny Guadagnino was invited to speak in a Columbia sociology class on "deviance", a subject on which Vinny is a recognized expert.
Vin spent a lot of time talking about being bullied growing up. It went really well, until he opened the floor up for questions.
We're told one observer bluntly 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?"
Vinny, who wasn't big on speech and debate in high school, was predictably stumped.
