Outraged at MTV: Buckwild Trailer

Yesterday, MTV premiered the trailer for its new reality show that will replace Jersey Shore.  Here’s the official summary from MTV:

BUCKWILD is an authentic comedic series following an outrageous group of childhood friends from the rural foothills of West Virginia who love to dodge grown-up responsibilities and always live life with the carefree motto, “whatever happens, happens.” 

Money might be tight in their neck of the woods, but whether they’re throwing a dump truck pool party or building their own human slingshot, nothing stops them from making their own entertainment. Love and relationships come and go, but their bond with family and friends is always at the core for this eccentric group where anything goes!

And here’s what the trailer shows:

Having grown up in West Virginia, I can say that not everything shown in this trailer is how it is being young in West Virginia.  Once again, MTV is reinforcing a stereotype and this time I have to say they have gone too far.  These kids that are on this show should be ashamed of themselves for being a part of this ignorant show.
