Kelly Ripa is done with fielding trollish comments on her Instagram. A recent photo provoked lots of comments from her subs about how she takes too many vacations. The Live! With Kelly and Ryan co-host responded after reading remarks like these:
"She's the only anchor with the whole summer off. She doesn't work that hard to begin with."
Ripa responded, "I'm not an anchor, I don't have the whole summer off, and I work extremely hard. Anything else?"
The critical remarks come as Ripa is on vacation with her husband Mark Consuelos and their kids in Greece. The comments apparently struck a nerve, as she took time out of her trip to respond to them. The offending photo in question showed her being kissed on the cheek by Consuelos as they admired a beautiful sunset. Controversial stuff.
While some celebrities just ignore their trolls, Ripa has a track record of biting back. In March, one commenter threw shade at Consuelos for being short.
"Too bad he's shorrt when he tries to look taller. It looks funny. Just be who you are."
"He's tall where it counts babe," she quipped back.
Consuelos, in turn, came to his wife's defense when a photo of her wearing a bikini drew derisive snickers from some parts of the internet.
"Yes she's wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come. If that offends you in some way, if it triggers you, or some other psychosis you're suffering from, I suggest you get over it and get used to it."
If there are any other bombs to be dropped on Ripa's social media accounts, she's probably going to be the one dropping them.
