(Newser) – Poor Snooki just can't catch a break. The Jersey Shore star is not wanted in Florence, Hoboken, and now you can add one more locale to the list. Dozens of residents of New Jersey's Berkeley Township took to the council meeting last night to protest Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's plan to shoot reality spin-off Snooki and JWoww, starring herself and Jennifer "JWoww" Farley, in the Pelican Island neighborhood, the Star-Ledger reports; they've even hired an attorney for the fight.

Snooki's response, which she posted on Instagram: "Unable how (sic) adults are trying to ban my son, fiancé 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." MTV hasn't officially said the show is looking to film in Pelican Island, but local officials say that's the plan. One resident calls it "a disgrace."
