'Princesses Long Island' slammed by the Twitterverse during, after premiere

There's nothing like social media to pile on the abuse and "Princesses: Long Island," which bowed Sunday night,  is enduring its fair share of pile-on. The Twitter reaction during the broadcast Sunday night was harsh enough, but it's continued Monday after Bravo posted the show online.

The general sentiment is all over the map. Clearly, a handful of viewers love the show -- I counted three in the Twitter stream, not including Bravo's own cheery upbeat tweets. A few viewers seemed fixated on Jeff Hoffman's sexuality (Jeff is the one who dates Amanda, and refers to her as "Babe;" a bit confusing insofar as Amanda's mom is "Babs" ).

Here's a sampling. I'll add to this as more amusing ones come my way -- and I'm awaiting ratings that should add a little more context to this...

lbandj 1h pretty much the only thing these deluded girls on Long Island Princesses get right is the amount of wine people drink. #princesses

Reservation 2h . @BravoAndy My suspicion of you being a misogynist has been confirmed w/ #princesses. Good Luck LI for having to live w/this atrocity.

MADinNYC 33m @BravoAndy As a Jewish girl who was raised in an "affluent suburb" of LI. #Princesses is an embarrassment to Bravo, LI & your own tribe!

Miz_Rosenberg 2h So when @Bravotv airs the #Princesses garbage, it's perpetuating old hatefulness that most of us fight against our whole lives.

 Miz_Rosenberg 2h Repeat: The term "Jewish American Princess" is racist. #princesses @Bravotv

melindajj06 9m Absolutely loving @Bravotv Long Island #princesses! These girls are fun, real & fabulous!!!

 The_RHHG 2h @bitterjim2u @sarahjane817 @monz88 I think @bravotv may have struck out with #princesses. I caved about 20 min in.#washoutbrain&eyesnow

TeeveeTalk 12m #princesses of Long Island is the most annoying thing I've seen in a minute

CLedgin 2h #Princesses Long Island / Princesses of Darkness is a tiny thoughtless group who represent LI tendencies we despise & want to get away from
