"Jersey Shore" star Mike Sorrentino got himself into a real Situation while filming Comedy Central's Roast of Donald Trump on Wednesday. The reality star told jokes that were so offensive that the crowd nearly booed him off stage, reports Us Weekly.
Sorrentino began by taking shots at his fellow presenters, calling Larry King old, Lisa Lampanelli fat and Marlee Matlin ugly. But that was nothing compared to what he had in store for Snoop Dogg.
In a racially insensitive bit, Sorrentino quipped that the rapper had much in common with Trump, since Trump owned a lot of property and Snoop's ancestors had once been property.
The audience failed to see the humor in Sorrentino's remarks and booed until emcee Jeffrey Ross stepped in to smooth things over.
"My whole career people have been hard on me," Sorrentino later told Us Weekly. "But I stood in there. I got through it, and people actually clapped at the end."
The MTV star also insisted that Snoop wasn't offended by his routine. "Snoop is an awesome dude," he said. "Very kind. Me and him got along so well. Between Trump and Snoop, I gained a lot of friendships."
