Jersey Shore star Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may share a love for the Garden State—but their differences seem to end there.
The reality TV starlet found herself in a bit of hot water after she called Gov. Christie “retarded” for his views on marriage equality.
The drama unfolded when a TMZ cameraman caught up with JWOWW and she shared how she felt about Gov. Christie’s views on gay marriage in light of the state’s recent decision that banning gay marriage was unconstitutional.
“He’s retarded,” Jenni told the paparazzo. “He’s a disgrace to Jersey just like we were!”
Jenni since took to Twitter to apologize for her words—but not her views.
After explaining that she was “caught of guard” and briefing fans on her views on marriage equality she wrote, “So I apologize for my choice of words but I do not apologize for how I feel towards him.
Caught off guard last night and said things I normally don't say. I find it disgusting people are still against gay marriage...— JWOWW (@JENNIWOWW) October 1, 2013
So because of that I called chris Christie a name which wasn't appropriate. I do find him disgusting and judgmental. I'm for gay equality— JWOWW (@JENNIWOWW) October 1, 2013
