Mike Defends Smacking Snooki

Thrown punches and ripped extensions are perfectly normal occurences on Jersey Shore, but what about Mike slapping Snooki in the mouth? In an attempt to round up the posse and leave the club, The Situation raised a hand against the stubborn Snooks. But critics say he was getting far too physical with the teeny Guidette.

Mike must have felt the haterade because he immediately went on the defense for his actions. He says, "Snooki sometimes drinks a little too much. She is unaware of her surroundings and unaware of what's going on. Everybody was leaving, and she was the only one staying there. We usually go as a group and stay as a group. To avoid what happened in season one, I really wanted to try and keep an eye on her and not necessarily slap some sense into her, but let her know, 'Hey, you can't be here by yourself. You're a little girl, and the whole group was leaving.' It was a little love tap." He says he doesn’t regret doing it, but admits that he may have gone about getting Snookers out of the club the wrong way.

He continued, "It's not like I punched somebody in the face. It's not like I did a full smack, a hard smack. It was a little tap to her cheek. Like, 'Wake up, you're going to get hurt.' And if you care for somebody, that is definitely acceptable, because you're looking out for somebody."

Mike swears he had the best intentions but we’re not so quick to switch to Team Sitch. But what do you think? Was his slap out of line? Take our poll and sound off in the comments below!
