Okay, so it’s no surprise that not everyone loves Jersey Shore — we like to think of the show (and its cast members) as an acquired taste. So we weren’t exactly shocked when New Jersey governor Chris Christie mentioned he wasn’t a fan and slammed them for being a misrepresentation of what people from New Jersey are actually like.

But Snooki and JWOWW haven’t gotten over it, and last night, after Snooks’ performance on Dancing With the Stars, JWOWW did not hold back when a TMZ reporter asked her for her thoughts on the governor’s recent appearance on CBS.

“He’s retarded,” Jenni said. “He’s a disgrace to New Jersey, just like we were.” Ouch! But to her credit, JWOWW took to her Twitter to clear up her statement, explaining that her reasons for disliking Chris Christie are less personal and have more to do with his stance on gay marriage.

“Caught off guard last night and said things I normally don’t say,” she explained. “I find it disgusting people are still against gay marriage. So because of that I called Chris Christie a name which wasn’t appropriate. I do find him disgusting and judgmental. I’m for gay equality. So I apologize for my choice of words but I do not apologize for how I feel towards him.” Well said, JWOWW!
