In the age of the internet, it’s no surprise that people like to spew their negativity toward others. Many individuals are particularly comfortable hating on celebrities. It’s simple enough to stay off the page of a star you aren’t a fan of, and yet the comments section on any of your favorite celeb’s social media would make you think otherwise. While some stars ignore the haters, others clap back just as hard.
Kelly Ripa is one of those stars who makes her opinions known. The TV veteran and daytime host prides herself in being positive and relatable. Her Instagram is filled with antics from Live With Kelly and Ryan; shots of her and hubby of 22 years, Mark Consuelos; and adorable pictures of her kids.
While the wholesome content and mom comments are enough to solicit a giggle from anyone, the haters of the internet leave no one behind. Never fear; Kelly is not one to back down. Her responses to commenters show how fiercely protective she is of her family and her career.
It started with this sweet sunset picture.
Kelly and her family have been in Greece on a family vacation. The star shared a picture of herself and hubby Mark Consuelos enjoying the sunset.
One commenter asked Kelly how they handle vacations on her daytime show, Live With Kelly and Ryan. Innocent enough, right?
Well, then another commenter chimed in and made things a little more dramatic.
While being a daytime TV host might seem like a job you or I would kill for, that doesn’t mean it’s easy. You’re talking seriously early mornings, for one.
Of course, Kelly didn’t hesitate in letting the commenter know that like everyone else, she deserves a break when she works hard.
Fans also stuck up for Kelly.
Many fans told Kelly to ignore the haters and enjoy her well-deserved vacation.
Others pointed out how difficult it is to work a vacation around everyone’s schedules. Kelly and Mark have three children: Michael, 21; Lola, 17; and Joaquin, 15. Mark also continues to act, most recently appearing as Hiram Lodge on the CW hit Riverdale.
This isn't the first time the haters have come for Kelly.
The trolls have been hard at work on Kelly’s page. Recently, she posted this shot of Mark and encouraged followers to vote for him as the Teen Choice 2018 Choice TV Villain.
@CommentsByCelebs captured this nasty response to Kelly’s call for votes.
Once again, Kelly fired back. If you dish it, you better be prepared to take it.
They even hate on her on Mark's Instagram.
When Mark posted this picture of 47-year-old Kelly rocking a gold two-piece, the haters took it upon themselves to try and break her shine. They said that at her age, Kelly has no business wearing a bikini and should cover up.
Mark posted this thoughtful response that shows they are not a couple to be played with!
The photo came up during the couple’s appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, where Kelly joked, “I don’t know what I’m supposed to wear to the beach. I mean, I don’t really know. I wasn’t in synagogue. I was at the beach. I mean, if you come up with an option, let me know.”
We’re happy that Kelly and Mark can continue to enjoy their life with their beautiful family while the trolls troll away.
While it’s unlikely that anything will stop naysayers from their naysaying, at least one thing is clear: If you come for Mark and Kelly, they won’t hesitate to come for you!
