“Geordie Shore Has Made Us A Laughing Stock” Say Geordies
“Absolutely awful. Paints the North East as trash,” one member of the public wrote on The Shields Gazette’s facebook page. “You can’t seriously tell my they didn’t watch it and cringe too. The person who produced the show must hate us up here, to portray us like that.”
“It was even worse than I imagined it would be. Geordie/North East folk have been made a laughing stock,” said another.
One Northern viewer even explained that the show had pushed them to the edge of self-harm. “It made me want to both claw out my eyes and poke things in my ears,” she said.
“It was enough to make most Geordies want to distance themselves from Newcastle and to make the rest of us want to distance ourselves from humanity,”
