Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is practically an ambassador for tanning, and even she finds the latest news about a mom taking her five-year-old daughter to a tanning booth outrageous.

The mom-to-be, 24, gave her two cents about New Jersey native (and a media-proclaimed tanorexic) Patricia Krenticil who made headlines after she was charged on April 24 when her child showed up at school with burns. The woman's daughter is now in her father's custody as state law prohibits children under the age of 14 to use tanning booths.

The Jersey Shore star and tanning enthusiast lashed out at the mother, telling EXTRA's Mario Lopez:

"That b*** is crazy… you are not supposed to take kids there. Everyone knows you are NOT supposed to take kids there."
