She’s not here for the hate! Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi of Jersey Shore fame shared a video of her baby son, Angelo, waving to her on Instagram on November 17, and almost immediately got fan comments about the interaction — both good and bad. “HE JUST WAVED,” she captioned the clip before adding, “(He smacked me at the end because I’m annoying).” LOL.

The little guy was drooling a bit in the video, and that led a fan to comment, “Dude, get a bib on the boy LOL.” That made Snooki, 31, epically clap back, “He’s fine, let him be a hot mess.” Way to go, mama!

Other fans joined in on defending the baby boy, with one person commenting, “He is living his best life!!!” Another person wrote, “Hey little miss perfect, he is fine and stop worrying about it.” Basically, people should know better than to come for baby Angelo, because Snooki’s people won’t let that slide.

In fact, this is far from the first time the Jersey Shore star has clapped back at someone on social media. Back in October, the reality star posted a photo of two of her kids playing outside their house, writing, “Hot messes out in nature💙❤️🌲.” A troll then responded, “It’s at the end of a driveway, LOL, not ‘in nature.’” Snooki replied, “Sarcasm, Karen.”

People have also come for Snooki’s daughter, Giovanna, in the past too, and it didn’t go well for them. In late July, the reality TV star posted an image of herself with her daughter where both of them are smiling at the camera, and someone commented, “I hope she’s not a hot mess in her prime like Snooki was.” What gives?!

Thankfully, Snooki was primed and ready to clap back that time, too. “Let us live,” the Jersey Shore star responded, along with an eye-roll emoji. Fortunately, most fans had only good things to say on that post. One person commented, “So darn adorable! Looks just like her mommy for sure!!!!!! ❤️” and another said, “She’s gorgeous. ❤️She is a spitting image of you.”

Are you a fan of Snooki’s clapbacks? Because honestly? We’re here for them.
