Four-year-old Siahj Chase has some choice words for mean people, and she's not afraid to share them.

Siahj -- who goes by "Cici," her mom, Sonya, told The Huffington Post -- has "always been quick on her feet." Based on this video Sonya shared on Facebook, wherein Cici recounts her response to a boy in her class who called her "ugly," she also has her priorities straight:

"What happened in school today?" her mom, Sonya, asks in the video. "A little boy said I looked ... ugly," Cici responded.

"And what did you say?" Cici's mom asked.

"I said, 'I didn't come here to make a fashion statement. I came here to learn -- not look pretty,'" Cici replied, adding, "The little boy said I looked 'bad,' and I said, 'Did you look in a mirror lately? Bye bye, see you later, you're making me mad.'"

Here's a quick recap of that conversation in gif form:

"Cici is a gem," Sonya told HuffPost, "she's sharp .... very active, talkative."

"I read lots of the comments that people wrote" she added, "and I just want to say thanks to everyone that said nice and encouraging things to and about her. I read some of them to Cici and she just smiles and giggles."

Haters gonna hate, Cici; keep being awesome.
