Jersey Shore star Snooki’s appearance at James Madison University is sold out, despite a racist uproar that broke out after students viciously argued over her invitation, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Snooki is scheduled to appear at the Virginia college on March 3, but the Facebook page that was created to promote the appearance quickly filled up with student comments attacking the MTV star and soon progressed to an all-out war, with students spewing racist comments toward each other, as RadarOnline.com first reported.

The page was pulled down by the University Board that arranged the event, but the student interest in Snooki has been overwhelming and there have been 2,999 requests for tickets to a space that only holds 1,000 people.

The sold out event is billed as Snooki’s first university appearance and she is scheduled to be interviewed by a comedian and do a question and answer session.

Many students objected to the frivolity of inviting Snooki and others made comments supporting the guy who famously punched her to the ground in a bar – one of the show’s most controversial moments.

But in the end, the demand for Snooki was high so while some students accused the university of selling out, ultimately it was Snooki who sold out!
