A remark from radio jockey Adam Schein that turned into a war-of-words between him and Snooki has erupted with the pint-sized reality television personality reportedly seeking to get him fired.
Adam Schein, who hosts satellite radio show Loudmouths, is apparently subject of a complaint filed with executives at Sirius XM after he tweeted about Snooki needing to shower after walking by her.
Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, was at the company’s New York City office to promote the latest season of MTV’s Jersey Shore spin-off Snooki & JWOWW, co-starring her Jersey Shore castmate and best friend Jenni Farley.
After a brush by SportsNet New York’s Loudmouths co-host Adam Schein, he tried to be clever with a cruel tweet.
“Just walked by Snooki at SiriusXM. I feel like I need a shower,” Adam Schein wrote, beckoning an almost instant reply from the Jersey Shore star, who rose to fame as MTV documented her wild antics in Seaside Heights with the rest of the cast.
“Why can’t you say that to my face though? #toughguy,” she responded.
The tweets sparked outrage as Snooki and Adam Shein’s followers came out of their respective corners with vitriolic insults for each other and the TV and radio personalities.
RadarOnline credited a popular Twitter source, @IncarceratedBob, who calls himself the “#1 Underground *Breaking Sports News*” with announcing Snooki had taken their argument to higher-ups.
“**UPDATED RADIO NEWS**Source: @snooki just went to #XM management trying to get @Adamschein fired for his comments.. she’s having a tantrum,” he wrote on Monday.
Snooki, 25, appears to have ignored Adam Schein on Twitter since the incident, while thanking fans for offering their support.
Her profile makes one thing clear.
Snooki describes herself as a “Proud Mommy & Fiance 3 Devoted Animal Print Lover” – but only after writing a message to her critics: “Ignorance & Bullies don’t phase this b****.”
Adam Schein was tweeting from the same handle on Wednesday afternoon and appeared to have retained his position at SiriusXM despite his remark and Snooki’s alleged complaint.
