'Jersey Shore's' Vinny joins Chaz Bono for anti-bullying PSA

"Dancing With the Stars" competitor Chaz Bono and "Jersey Shore's" Vinny Guadagnino are using their star power for a good cause.

Both appear in the anti-bullying campaign Amplify Your Voice, which launched yesterday.

GLAAD partnered with the American Federation of Teachers to produce the message, designed to fight anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) bullying and encourage acceptance.

"Millions of gay and transgender youth are made to feel like they don't fit in everyday," says a suit-clad Vinny in the video. (Maybe he's wearing The Situation’s formal wear line.) Chaz chimes in, “You have the power to make a difference.”

Other celebs involved with the campaign include Amy Poehler, Shay Mitchell of “Pretty Little Liars,” “Glee” star Naya Rivera, Kristin Chenoweth, Rashida Jones, Tori Spelling and “Modern Family” actress Ariel Winter.

Amplify Your Voice should help students gear up for the second annual Spirit Day, which is October 20. An anti-bullying effort, Spirit Day encourages people to wear purple as a gesture of support for LGBT youth.

    How can Vinny from the "jersey shore" be a spokesperson for an anti-bullying campaign? On that "show" he makes fun of women all the time for their appearance, weight, and calls them "grenades" because you have to sometimes sacrifice your time with them so your bro can hook up. He is a horrible person and should not be what teens and young adults try and emulate.

    Whosoever of ye raises me a white-headed whale with a wrinkled brow and a crooked jaw; whosoever of ye raises me that white-headed whale, with three holes punctured in his starboard fluke- look you, whosoever of ye raises me that same white whale, he shall have this gold ounce, my boys

    Once all the glamor and attentions fades from the life of Chaz she will realize what a mistake she made, what a fool she has made of herself and then probably put a gun into her mouth and pull the trigger.

    My child was bullied to the point of torture at school. The "no tolerance" policy was not enforced and the way it is worded it protects the bully kids. Schools and parents have to get serious about this problem and ensure the bully kids face consequences for their behavior.

    Surely he isnt sleeping with snooki. That is just way gross. He is yucky but she is just horrible. She looks like a walking STD. It makes my stomach hurt just considering it.

    I can see why these two freak shows would want to do this. Maybe if "IT" stayed in the body "IT" was born in, "IT" won't be bullied. If Vinny wasn't making a fool of himself on tv and wh0*ing around sleeping with Snooki and everyone else, he won't be bullied as well.

      How come Chaz Bono is a freak show? You're close minded. Vinny does what he does on the Jersey Shore because people watch it. For someone who has a lot of hate to say about Vinny you know enough to have watched the show. Jealousy is ugly and my guess is so are you. Freak show.
