After posting a picture of her young daughter to Instagram, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi fired back at online trolls when she was mom-shamed for not combing the little girl’s hair. Even though it’s been six whole years since Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was cast member on the Jersey Shore, one of MTV’s most lucrative dumpster fires ever, the criticism stemming from her time in the spotlight is harsh as ever.
Polizzi was actually at the wedding shower for her former Jersey Shore castmate Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino when she snapped the picture of her daughter Giovanna next to the daughter of Jenni “JWoww” Farley, another Jersey Shore alum. It didn’t take long for commenters to hop on the post and leave remarks like “How come you never comb your kids hair?!” and “Dude at least comb the girls hair or something.” That’s when Polizzi stepped in to shut down all of that talk.
“Are we mom shaming? Who gives a fuck. We drove with the windows down singing and enjoying life. Sorry i can’t always brush and braid her hair like you, perfect mom,” Polizzi wrote. “blocking you pain in the ass.”
Kid’s hair seems to be one those touchy subjects that people just love to remark about whether they’re a boy or girl. Earlier this year singer Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel were ignorantly slammed with comments about how their son’s long wavy hair made him look ‘more like a daughter.’ Still, a lot of the folks who elected to not be irritating busybodies in Polizzi’s comments were quick to come to her defense.
“I would much rather have my daughter not give a damn what any judgmental snobs think about her all then to tell her that her appearance and what others think about her is more important than living in the moment and being happy,” wrote one commenter, while another asked “How would you feel if someone talked about your kids that way?” before telling the shamers to chill.
