Recently, residents of Pelican Island, New Jersey protested the pending arrival of Snooki and her family to their quiet home town to film the upcoming third season of Snooki and JWOWW, and as you can imagine, Snooks wasn’t amused. What’s a girl gotta do to spend time with her adorable family and film a TV show around here?

Luckily, celebs on twitter are already showing their support. And if anyone can understand Snooki’s feelings, it’s Real Housewives star and fellow New Jersey native Caroline Manzo.

Following the article posted on NJ.com, Snooki tweeted that the protests were “absolutely sick and very sad.” Caroline chimed in soon afterwards: “Good for you, I'm doing same. People should grow up & appreciate your support. Small business down the shore needs help this year.”

Caroline’s got a point — after last fall’s Hurricane Sandy, the shore will need all the tourism dollars it can get to restore itself to its former glory. “Thanks so much for the support mama!” Snooki replied. “Much respect to you!!!!”

We’re glad to know Caroline stands behind Snooki. She’s obviously bummed that so many people are trying to keep her out of their town, so we’re glad she has some back-up.

Would you support Snooki like Caroline has, or are you siding with the Pelican Islanders? Let us know whose side you’re on in the comments!
