Vinny Guadagnino of “Jersey Shore” has been getting in on the “WAP” action – and, seemingly, getting unfollowed over it. The 32-year-old reality face updated his Instagram today with his spin on the viral music video from rappers Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B. Not alone in delivering edits – Lisa Rinna just did it today – Vinny went the whole hog, even using his face to super-impose that of “WAP” cameo’ing Kylie Jenner.
Reviews have been mixed, although many of Vinny’s 3.2 million followers found the whole thing hilarious. Check it out below – including Vinny’s clap-back.
Scroll for the video. It showed the well-known prankster with his face totally replacing those of “Savage” rapper Megan and “Hustlers” star Cardi. The video’s most famous hallway scene that sees the two rappers sashaying around near buttock-shaped doorknobs was used – Vinny and his little tache and mini goatee proved amusing as he kept the ample cleavage seen on both Cardi and Megan.
Cardi’s leopard-print scene was also included. Likewise, the hallway parading seen from 23-year-old Kylie Jenner. A caption kept up the humor.
A caption from Vinny read: “Ahhh!! So excited to finally share my music with you guys ! This video took all day to film but it was so worth it ! I hope you love it.. enjoy !”
Over a quarter of a million views were logged in under an hour for this upload, but responses from Vinny’s followers proved mixed.
“You just been unfollowed,” a fan wrote, with many others agreeing. Another, meanwhile, included a homophobic slur as they wrote:
“Why do you do this gay s-it smh.”

Vinny seems to have been reading the comments. The user telling him he was “unfollowed” took under 30 minutes to get a reply. The Staten Island native quickly fired back, writing: “Bye.”
But there was way more fire as he responded to the “gay sh-t” comment:
“I get more women than you’ll ever dream of.
That was enough to send the fans crazy. “It’s funny, he has a sense of humor. This is actually what girls look for ?,” one wrote. Another agreed with Vinny, writing: “Big facts.
We’ve had the “Tiger King” phase of quarantine, the banana bread, the no toilet roll, and now, seemingly, the “WAP” phase. The controversial hit song has been slammed for its overtly-sexual themes and the inclusion of Kylie Jenner, but no amount of complaints have dampened the song’s success as this week, “WAP” racked up a record-breaking 93 million streams in the week after its release, also entering in at number 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Cardi B even said that she would “die for a couple seconds and come back to life” if the song debuted at no.1.
