Note to self: Don’t piss off Snooki.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, star of MTV’s Jersey Shore , recently got into a tiff with residents of the Pelican Island community over location scouting for the reality star’s upcoming season of Snooki & JWoww. According to NJ.com, over 40 Pelican Island residents gathered to protest the idea of Snooki and JWoww residing on their island. Pelican Island is still recovering from the detrimental effects of Hurricane Sandy, and only about 30 of the 150 households are back. Residents say that the island is not ready to deal with a film crew and the publicized attention in its current state.

Upon hearing the news, the bite-sized guidette took to her Instagram:

“Adults are trying to ban my son, fianc√© and I from enjoying our summer at the shore. Grow up, get over yourself and move on. This is not how we should be treating one another. Absolutely sick and very sad. I pray for you. There’s much bigger things to worry about in life than trying to ban my family from your neighborhood.”

She may be small, but Snooki’s words can certainly pack a mean punch. Do you think the residents are overreacting? Or should Snooki just get over it? And who else wants to see a “Pelican Island vs. Snooki” T-shirt in stores pronto?
