Don’t mess with this mama! Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi wasn’t going to stand for any shade after trolls criticized the nickname she has for her daughter, Giovanna. The Jersey Shore star, 31, took to her Instagram comments to shut down the haters.

“I think it’s so dumb that you call your daughter ‘Sissy,’ like just call her by her real name,” wrote the salty user. “I can call MY daughter whatever I please,” the reality star hit back, adding, “Kindly f—k off.”

Many fans took to the comments to defend their favorite guidette. “I call my daughters Sugar Foot and Chicken Nugget. Some days I think Sissy is MUCH better than what I came up with,” read one reply. “Ever heard of nicknames?! My daughter is called Boo since she looks like her and Sissy just as her brother is called Bubba,” another user added.


Snook’s epic clapback was posted in the comments of a recent selfie she uploaded to her grid. The brunette beauty was all smiles as she posed with a bag that read, “Giovanna’s Cheer Mom” and a hat that said, “Cheer Mom.”

Some fans took aim at the proud mom for being a little overzealous. “Officially time to unfollow. This is ridiculous. If I ever lose my identity to my children, I hope somebody would tell me,” wrote one user. “Wowwwww,” Snooki replied, paying no attention to the accusation that she has lost her mojo.

This isn’t the first time the reality star has set the record straight on the ‘gram. Recently, she fired back at a troll who called her children “rich kids” on a post of them getting into the Halloween spirit. “I’m raising my kids to know the value of the dollar, hence their dollar store masks,” she responded.

Snooki’s fans were shook someone would say such a thing but told her not to pay any attention to it. “Girl, you don’t need to explain yourself to no one! As long as you know that you’re a good mom and that they are happy, then that’s all that matters,” one person wrote. A second person said, “I love how down to earth you are, girl.” Sissy is a pretty cute nickname if you ask us!
