Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is apparently being "harassed" in clubs for giving up drinking.
The Jersey Shore star spent a few weeks in rehab earlier this year battling a prescription pill addiction and has also now sworn off alcohol.
But RadarOnline claims that Mike's new clean living lifestyle is putting him at the brunt of insensitive hecklers.
"Mike has been consistently taunted by other club goers for not drinking," a show insider told the site.
"He has been handling it pretty well but it can get embarrassing and awkward for him to consistently be harassed for it.
"Mike was being heckled on Friday night before the fight broke out. It has been hard for him to deal with at times because his sobriety is still rather new.
"However, Mike absolutely hasn't been drinking or taking pills and is committed to staying sober. He isn't going to stay home and not go to clubs, he doesn't think that going out will harm his recovery."
Several cast members got into a huge brawl on Friday night and co-star Deena Cortese was arrested for disorderly conduct on Sunday.
