When you think of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi you might think: “Jersey Shore.” Star of her namesake reality TV show. “Dancing With The Stars” contestant. Soon-to-be-wifey. Mom. Entrepreneur. But did you know she’s also an anti-hate advocate?
I have NO IDEA how Snooki does it all, but props to her for spreading the love far and wide, especially to those who have experienced hate — whether it be a racial slur, a nasty comment online or discrimination simply because they’re gay.

You see, Snooki took time out of her busy schedule to do a photo shoot for the NOH8 campaign, an org “whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality.” Snooki is in good company, as other MTV stars have also posed for the campaign, such as her BFF, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino and Nev Schulman.

I was lucky enough to tag along with Snooki for the shoot. True story, guys, she’s as funny IRL as she is on-camera. We sat down and talked about how the NOH8 campaign is a personal mission for her, as she’s battling haters every day, whether it be on Twitter or in person. We also talked about the new season of “Snooki & JWOWW,” which airs on Tuesdays at 10/9c. She explains why this is the ” funnest season” of “Snooki & JWOWW” or “Jersey Shore” that she’s ever filmed! And I didn’t think anything could top Season 2 of “Jersey Shore” in Miami!
In honor of this awesome partnership between Snooki and NOH8, we’re running a T-shirt giveaway on Twitter. Win a signed MTV Act or NOH8 t-shirt signed by Snooki! All you have to do is Tweet at us @MTVact with the hashtag #NOH8 and let us know what you’re showing no hate to. For example: “@MTVact I’m showing #NOH8 to racism.” Rules are here, and the contest ends on November 11. Good luck!
