Emilio Masella: just please go away.

Snooki’s nightmare ex-boyfriend Emilio told TMZ earlier today that he “hopes [Snooki] has a miscarriage” and then backtracked by explaining that he misspoke and that this is all just part of his terrible, ill-advised plan to win Snooki back. (To be fair, Emilio prefaced his nasty miscarriage comment with “not to be rude,” aka the fool-proof way to have your nasty comments not come out offensive on opposite day.)

Now, Emilio is making the rounds trying to cover up for his hurtful comments about Snooki.

“What I meant by the statement was that I hope she doesn’t have the child,” Emilio told TMZ in another interview. “I just hope the test was wrong ... I think she's too young. I don’t think this kid is in it for her.”

"If she's pregnant with this kid I guess I can't associate with her,” Emilio added.

We’re sure Snooki is heartbroken...
