'Jersey Shore' punch: Culprit is NYC school teacher

The man who sucker-punched Jersey Shore‘s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi in promotional clip that quickly went viral, it turns out, is a New York City public school teacher, according to The New York Post. Queens gym teacher Brad Ferro, 24, is the culprit and has subsequently been moved out of the classroom and into one of the system’s reassignment centers, agency officials said. Police said that Ferro and “Snooki” began a verbal altercation at Beachcomber Bar & Grill in Seaside Heights, N.J., which led to him striking her in the face. He was subsequently arrested, which New York City education officials claim they hadn’t heard about sooner because it was out of state.

    Any guy that puts his hands on a woman deserves to get his ass whooped. Douche bag

    • scandolous

      Now what he did was WRONG completely. Because she didn’t assault him. But are you saying that if a woman is kicking and punching at slashing at a guy, he SHOULD NEVER STRIKE back…even in self defense. I say HELL TO THE NO!!

  • Marvelous

    Any man that puts his hands on a woman like that deserves to get his a** handed to him.

  • versionthirteen

    “Gym” teacher huh. Bet the steroid abuse has shrunk his lil balls up and turned him into a psycho. Take ‘em to the town dump and put him down like a yard rat.

  • robert

    can anyone spelled ” S T A G E D”

    • Lizzie

      Uh….staged?? seriously? lol – what girl in their right mind would be willing to take a hit like that? no, i don’t belive that was staged at all.

      • AcaseofGeo

        LOLOL. This show just gets worse and worse (as in, unfortunately MUST WATCH)…..Who needs to stage a fake punch with all the other trash going on? Its just gratuitous trash upon trash.

    • metal

      i couldnt agree more i think she would have been hurt a lot more than that after a punch to the face..and has anyone seen her since does she even have a bruise

  • wakeforce

    Put him in a tough inner-city school and he wouldn’t be so tough.

    • Nathan

      What does that even mean? The inner city kids will whoop his ass? Or just call him names so he gets upset? Doesn’t sound too scary to me.

      • sinister sister

        You’ve OBVIOUSLY never been in an inner city school.

      • Chris

        Ya you obviously never been in an inner city school… Actually yes the inner city kids may just whoopp his ass or worse….

      • MT

        Nathan probably went to the kind of school where the worst anyone did was spread rumors about someone’s Prada handbag being a fake.

      • dgh

        yeah inner city kids are pretty stupid look at how many inner city kids kill each other everynight over stupid stuff!!

    • theJuanStar

      I went to suburban and urban schools and will tell you my experience in the suburban school was far worse.

  • Jack

    Notice, in the clip he’s shorter than the girl he punched. Methinks he’s got some internal “vertical issues” to work out.

    • lollylollylolly

      Impossible, Snooki’s only 4’9 LOL

    • Lyndsey

      She’s standing on a bar chair and leaning over.

  • Drewww

    Staged?? Did you see that poor girls head snap back? You couldn’t fake that. And PS i think he only seemed shorter ’cause she was on a barstool when she got hit.

  • Mal

    The guy is not shorter than the girl, she is tiny. I don’t even think she’s 5′ tall. She must be up on the stool as someone else mentioned.

    • Fatima

      She said on Wendy Williams today that she’s 4 foot 9!

  • NotSmart

    Not too smart to punch a goon’s daughter. He’ll be feeding the fish sooner than later.

    • alex

      her father is made?

      • JB

        Safe to assume. She’s italian, after all.

      • anna

        shes not italian!
        none of them are their a disgrace to all us italians !

  • alex

    that was NOT STAGED..so sick of people saying that kind of stuff…these are real people put in a real situation just with cameras…

    what that guy did…horrible…HORRIBLE…but if you want proof that this stuff isnt staged, look at brady from rw/rr ruins…tell me that was makeup….

  • John A

    “reassignment centers”

    LOL so basically he gets to just hang out in a room all day surfing the internet and playing cards while collecting a pay check.

    Hitting that girl was the best thing he could have ever done.

  • Lizzie

    that was rediculous. Wow, he just hauled off and punched. He better watch out, I think some folks will be coming for his ass, even if she is annoying that was horrible.

  • Danno

    Haven’t seen the clip. Is the guy’s face blurred? If not then STAGED in the sense that the producers set up to have the altercation take place but it went farther than they expected.

    • a/c

      Then you haven’t seen the clip. I don’t remember if his face was blurred or not but he PUNCHED this girl in the face. He punched her harder than one of the male castmates punched someone else in the premier episode.

      I rewound that clip several times b/c I can’t believe MTV showed it at all.

  • qjersey

    He may be wrong, but I have seen too many tacky Jersey and New York girls get all up in a man’s face under the “protection” that “men don’t hit women.”

    • wakeforce

      Getting in a man’s face is not enough reason. If she had thrown a punch first or slapped him, I would understand. But the guy clearly was WRONG, no maybe about that.

  • CraftySabine

    Violence against women should NEVER be tolerated. That kind of violence, punching,always escalates into something even worse. These MTV and VH1 reality shows are getting out of control.

    • TellyB

      violence against PEOPLE should never be tolerated. Why is it ok to hit a man, but not a woman? Both things are wrong… Violence is NEVER the answer…

      • Jane

        Tell’em TellyB. If women demand equal rights, it only fair we should have equal responsiblities and equal consequences for our action. No one should hit anyone.

    • JimB

      I think men should NEVER hit women. But I also think women should be at home, fixing the mans dinner and taking care of the children. If you want to be equal then accept the consequences and quit whining about it. Maybe it taught her a lesson about being a skanky ho and getting all mouthy up in a mans face. But i doubt it. Skanks never learn.

      • cindi

        JimB…….You are an idiot!!

      • dave

        agreed jimb agreed, women wanna be equal in every aspect except gettin hit

    • gigi

      So if it was 2 chicks or 2 dudes fighting it out over something stupid that’s okay. Please! Keep your hands to yourself!!

      • JimB

        A dude gets all up in my face and yelling $hit, then yes, dude’s gonna get punched. And you whiney little women will complain all the while you’re thinking the guy’s hot. Don’t lie. Your nips’ll be gettin hard.
