Pink slip on the way for ‘Jersey Shore’ puncher

The Queens gym teacher who threw a haymaker into the face of reality show ‘Jersey Shore’ cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will be fired soon.

Brad Ferro was arrested on Aug. 19 in Seaside Heights after punching Polizzi.

“The Department of Education is in the process of taking termination action against Mr. Ferro,” an agency spokeswoman said yesterday.

Video of the shot heard ’round the Shore went viral on the Internet after MTV used it to promote the guido-rific show. The channel chose not to air the disturbing clip, but only after millions had watched it online.

Ferro has been assigned to the department’s so-called “rubber room” facility for teachers awaiting investigation. The untenured teacher at North Queens Community High School will have 30 days once he receives the letter, which is currently being drafted, to pack his things and go.

The assault occurred after Ferro was reportedly cut off at the Beachcomber Bar & Grill because he was too drunk. He started to grab drinks off the bar that belonged to Polizzi and her friends, then punched her when she told him off.

Ferro was fined $500 and ordered to take an anger management class after a conviction for simple assault. He has said he has no memory of hitting Polizzi.
