Whether you like it or not, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is a household name nowadays. And to be honest, ever since she exploded onto the reality television scene a la Jersey Shore circa 2009, she’s been making headlines for unapologetically being herself.
And even though her crazy partying days are pretty much over, the 30-year-old mom of two manages to stay in the spotlight with her super-honest parenting posts, giving fans from all over the world an inside look at her life raising her 4-year-old daughter, Giovanna, and her 5-year-old son, Lorenzo.
Snooki is also no stranger to controversy and has no problem speaking her mind and giving her opinion — especially when it comes to her children. The fierce mama bear regularly defends her parenting style (you’re doing amazing, sweetie!) and, in turn, never backs down from internet trolls who criticize both her and her children — which is exactly what happened when she posted a photo of Giovanna and Jenni “JWoww” Farley’s daughter, Meilani, at fellow Jersey Shore castmate Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s wedding shower over the weekend.
Let's get one thing straight: Snooki straight up ADORES her children.
Just look at those smiles!
Her 5-year-old son, Lorenzo, is the spitting image of husband Jionni.
And her 4-year-old daughter, Giovanna, is literally Snooki’s mini-me.
Seriously, they are IDENTICAL!
Last weekend, the crew got back together to celebrate The Situation's wedding shower.
Snooki posted this photo of Giovanna and Meilani, JWoww’s daughter, and joked, “Here’s a pic of us at our first red carpet event. We were so young.”
Comments like these flooded the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star’s Instagram.
However, because we can never have just nice things nor can we just appreciate a cute photo for what it is — a cute photo of LITERAL CHILDREN — a troll felt the need to comment on Snooki’s daughter’s appearance, calling her hair “crazy.”
To which Snooki rightfully replied, “Let her live.”
Snooki then elaborated on her original comment, to which we say, “GET. IT. MAMA!”
Some people had nothing but love to give.
While others continued to criticize both Snooki’s daughter and her parenting skills.
In the words of Snooki, LET HER LIVE.
