Snooki Responds To Radio Host Who Called Her Ugly

If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all. Especially, if it's directed at Snooki.

The reality TV star, fresh off her elimination from this week's "Dancing With The Stars," took on some negative criticism Tuesday (Oct. 29).

Colorado Morning News host Steffan Tubbs commented that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was "f--king ugly" on his radio show. Tubbs thought his microphone was turned off at the time he said the crude statement.

No doubt Snooks was ready to give the host a piece of her mind. Surprisingly, the "Jersey Shore" star took the high road (using her Twitter account) instead.

Tubbs' workplace, Newsradio 850KOA, posted a message on its Facebook page two days ago addressing the fiasco:

"We are aware of a recent inappropriate comment that was made on-air by Steffan Tubbs. While Steffan made the comment in what he thought was a private conversation, it was still thoughtless and insensitive and we apologize to anyone whom it offended. We take matters of this nature very seriously and we will take appropriate disciplinary action."

The radio host returned to the air Wednesday -- here's hoping he has reformed his ways.
