Now, brutal comments are flying again thanks to student Joshua Kalaher's new Facebook page called 'Stay Off My Campus Snooki’ which already has almost 800 members and counting, all voicing their mostly negative opinions of the Jersey Shore guidette's  appearance. Here are some highlights:

Joshua Kalaher:  "Snooki is a cast member of the Jersey Shore - a show that glorifies an outrageous stereotype of Italian Americans, depicts a deplorable image for impressionable youth, and essentially provides no redeeming qualities whatsoever."

Kevin Collins: "It's not just that we are angry that Snooki is coming, but that JMU, a well respected University; our University, is bringing her here. This is presumably going to create a negative perception of our school to the rest of the..."

Tory Motherway: "Dear GET OVER IT! There is no reason to be racist or cruel, Nora Claire Sacks I just don't understand how JMU's student body isn't embarrassed by having her come here..We're in Virginia. I came to JMU based on it commitment to 'be the change' and promote well rounded individuals. Personally, and correct me if I'm wrong, but Snooki is NOT a well rounded individual."

Daniel Westbrook: "The biggest issue isn't about just not seeing her, but by inviting her to come here at all it sends the message that her behavior is acceptable. It's offensive because a woman who is famous and has money for being obnoxious, unintelligent, and a poor representation of all people should not be paid more money..."

Dan Piräte Simonsön: "This would be a good time for a picket."

Daniel Westbrook: "So if all 1045 seats were 5 dollars each...when we paid her to come her for 9000...we're short about 3,775 dollars. Nice calculations there UPB."

Michael David Smith: "It's ironic that a university is allowing a speaker with a negative IQ to address its student body."

Kelly McClure: "i don't want the JMU fees i pay that go to UPB to then end up in a skank's wallet. just sayin'."

Corey Gagnon: "I personally can't wait for her to come so I can ask her a couple questions. A few I have in mind: Have you ever been on an actual university campus before?W as it harder for you to accept the fact that you will never be anything more than a glorified ignorant, or the fact that you're ugly and fat?"

However, there were some pro-Snooki comments sprinkled throughout:

Nate Branscome: "go snooooookie"

Chelsea Whitley: "Just wanted to say thanks to all the haters not attending since it means my friends and I can get better seats. Keep sippin' that hater-ade... you're the best!!!"

Camden Layell: "If you all don't want to see her, then simply don't go. She's a celebrity (at least in the reality tv world) and there's plenty of people here who DO want to see her. This show is not a representation of New Jersey as a whole; it's just a representation of the cast of the show."
