Rutgers Pays Trashy Snooki $32,000 To Lecture
She's loud. She's foul-mouthed. She's dumb. She's trashy.
So, she belongs on a university campus as a key speaker, right?
Apparently New Jersey's Rutgers University seems to think so.
Because the university's Programming Association paid the "Jersey Shore" star to talk about her hairstyle, fist pumps, and the Jersey Shore lifestyle (Including "gym, tanning, laundry") on Thursday.
Money for Polizzi's appearance came out of the mandatory student activity fee.
And, get this: Rutgers actually paid this dumb broad more than they paid a much more prominent speaker -- Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison.
This is a disgrace.
Rutgers is the state university and the state ought to look into this. It's wrong.

Snooki doesn’t even deserve the right or privilege to have her name in the same sentence with Toni Morrison!! And never thought in my entire life that I would read anything that included both Snooki and Toni Morrison in the same vein of discussion, but props to Rutgers for making it.
