Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi isn’t afraid of a little controversy. In fact, we think she quite enjoys it. The Jersey Shore star posted a photo of her bottle feeding 8-week-old son Angelo while sipping a glass of red wine, along with the caption, “What’s mom life like with 2 kids and a newborn?” THIS. #MomJuice #ImAGoodMomISwear.” Cue the mom-shamers.
Most fans applauded her candor, while some were quick to express judgment about her consuming alcohol while caring for a child. Snooki quickly clapped back at one troll, writing, “I allow myself to have a few glasses once a week to stay sane with 3 kids. I do what’s necessary to clean my milk for my baby. Let a mawma live.”
During a recent interview with Women on Top, Snooki assured her fans that the mom-shamers won’t stop her from sharing adorable moments with her kiddos. “I want my babies to always be protected and in this little bubble, but at the same time, they are just such amazing little creatures and I want to share them.”
Further proving that the online community can be brutal, Snooki received major shade from a follower after simply sharing a selfie. “Your kids are so ashamed you’re their mother,” wrote the hater. To which Snooki shut down with a simple, “That’s fake news. They’re obsessed with their mawma.”
Clearly, Snooki is paying the haters no mind while continuing to enjoy her mom life (and her wine). And that’s exactly the way it should be! Keep doing your thang, mama!
