If you thought Caroline Manzo was a protective mama bear well she’s an even more protective grandma.
The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star slammed haters who criticized her 1-year-old granddaughter Markie‘s outfit.
The drama started when Caroline posted a picture of Markie rocking shorts and a striped cropped top.
Haters quickly bashed Markie’s outfit; claiming it was inappropriate. Some said the outfit sexualized the toddler while others said the 1-year-old looked like a stripper!
Not surprisingly, Caroline wasn’t having any of that and took to the comment section to set EVERYONE straight.
“Dear Everyone, If we are going to have a full-on breakdown over a child wearing a crop top I think it’s time to remove yourself from social media. Or, more specifically, my social media. I’m really amazed at the courage you have under the protection of a computer or smartphone. I have read some of the most ridiculous comments regarding Markie’s outfit, my favorite being that we should follow Princess Charlotte’s example how to present ourselves. Do you realize how foolish that sounds? For those who’ve made remarks about her dressing like a stripper, etc…. I have only one thing to say… you are disgusting. So to put myself in your world and mind, GO FUCK YOURSELVES. For those that took the photo as it should be, a sweet little girl, wearing a sweet little outfit, many thanks. Have a great day,” Caroline vented.
Meanwhile, Caroline’s oldest son Albie posted a photo of him holding Markie in the same outfit and poked fun at the controversy, telling fans, “When you drop a “you left the house wearing that?” before she’s 2…”
Albie and Lauren, Markie’s mom, also took to the comments of Caroline’s post and told the trolls where to shove it.
Despite all the drama surrounding a toddlers outfit, most fans thought Markie’s outfit was quite adorable and very appropriate.
I’m so happy Caroline shut down the trolls. Who the hell says such things about a toddlers outfit? She’s 1 – she doesn’t know what she’s wearing and looks perfectly content. Markie’s outfit is so cute and very festive for this time of year. I live in Jersey and it’s ungodly hot this week. The temps are in the high 90’s with lots of humidity. Today it’s 100 degrees with a heat index of 111 degrees – so the less you wear the better. People need to find hobbies instead of criticizing a little girl’s outfit.
