Do not come for Kelly !
It’s a time-honored internet tradition to troll women for being…of a certain age. It never goes out of style because trolls never stop being generic clichés! And the trolls were out in force this weekend to make sure Live With Kelly and Ryan‘s Kelly Ripa was kept abreast of the fact that she is apparently entirely too much of an old crone for her husband, Mark Consuelos, who’s 47.
Never mind that, first of all, when wizened, ancient TV host Kelly Ripa dares to hobble out of her crypt she looks like this:
And never mind that many men in Hollywood are married to much younger women. The real point is that 47 years of age is entirely too old a woman for a man of *checks notes* 47 YEARS OF AGE!
When Consuelos posted a picture to Instagram of himself supporting the #HeForShe movement, Ripa applauded him for standing up for the gender equality campaign, commenting, “You make me proud @instasuelos.”
Lovely, right? Hooray for women and men being supportive of women! Hooray for husband-and-wife teams being supportive of each other and women! Except…not so much.
One Instagram user replied in a now deleted comment:
@KellyRipa yes he is so handsome but you need to go Kelly you look to old for him sorry but you do.
This troll messed with the wrong celeb. Ripa clapped right back with her own withering comments:
You need to learn how to spell the word too sweetie. As in you’re too stupid to be with my young, handsome husband. Ps, he likes proper grammar as well you dope.
Ripa is no stranger to putting trolls all the way in their place. She wasted no time in snarking back at a troll who suggested she had a nose job and veneers, and when a social media user made fun of Consuelos for being short, she simply replied, “He’s tall where it counts babe.”
Get ’em, Kelly.
Folks on social media were pretty much unanimously #TeamKelly:
In the immortal words of a certain Real Housewife, don’t come for Kelly Ripa unless she sends for you!
