Former "Jersey Shore" star Snooki says New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is a bully.
The reality TV star, whose real name is Nicole Polizzi, tweeted on Thursday in reaction to Christie’s press conference where he was asked whether he’s a bully.
In a nearly two-hour-long news conference, Christie addressed issues related to the George Washington Bridge scandal plaguing his administration. Reporters asked him after his initial remarks whether he considers himself to be a bully.
“I am who I am,” he said, “but I am not a bully.”
The bridge controversy, some say, could have political repercussions if he decides to run for president in 2016.
ABCNews.com asked Polizzi if she would support Christie if he enters the race.
“Well it’s obvious he wouldn’t have my vote! Pretty sure he would exile me,” she told the news site.
Christie once called MTV’s “Jersey Shore” “negative for New Jersey.” Polizzi said last year of the governor, “He just doesn’t like us,” ABC News notes.
Most recently, Polizzi has been starring in the show’s spin-off “Snooki & JWoww.”
