Every Hilarious Clapback Kelly Ripa Has Had For Her Haters

For almost 30 years, Kelly Ripa has been doing her thing in the entertainment industry. From her role on All My Children to her current position as a talk show host on Live! with Kelly and Ryan, she’s been a boss. Therefore, the mother of three probably thought nothing of taking some pics during a family getaway.

When Ripa’s husband, Riverdale actor Mark Consuelos, posted a photo of his beautiful bikini-clad wife, the internet was immediately abuzz. Apparently, some haters were offended by a 47-year-old woman wearing a bikini, while others simply just had nasty things to say. Luckily Ripa and Consuelos are the queen and king of clapbacks.

From the controversial bikini shot (page 5) to their family’s antics on social media (page 7) and everything in between, here are all of the hilarious times they let trolls have it.

Trolling the trolls

While many celebritiess simply ignore any negative comments on their social media pages, Ripa delights in making her trolls feel uncomfortable. In fact, it’s one of her favorite activities.

In an Instagram video, she revealed, “I like trolling. I love trolling a troll. It is my favorite thing to do.”

Don’t come for her man

Recently, Ripa shared a cute throwback photo of herself and Consuelos with the caption, “That other time we got fancy.” Unfortunately, some poor troll was deeply offended by the photo and rudely responded by saying, “Too bad he’s short when he tries to look taller. It looks funny. Just be who you are.”

Ever quick with the comeback, Ripa responded cheekily, “He’s tall where it counts, babe.” Meanwhile, Consuelos asked the important questions, “Please tell me how it is I can try to look taller? I’m dying to know.”

Just because you’re a public figure, people think it’s OK to say any rude thing to you. Luckily, Ripa won’t let anyone walk over her. In an Instagram video captioned, “Kelly reads mean IG comments,” an IG user said, “Her head looks [sic]to big for her tiny body.”

Per usual, Ripa was quick to quip, “to is spelled too FYI.” Grammer and spelling are fundamental.

It seems scary to be in the public eye, especially when people think they know who you are. In fact, one bold troll tried to claim that Ripa lies about her husband’s heritage. The rude hater claimed that she “lies about her husband being Italian.”

Ripa was having none of it. She quickly clapped back saying,

OMG, please get help, you are making yourself look like a complete fool. Please stop shouting and do your research. A quick google search is all you need. @instasuelous father is from Mexico (Oaxaca) his mother is from Lago Majorie, Italy. Not that I feel the need to justify this to you, but since you called me a liar and I’m bored I felt the need to straighten you out.

Next: The bikini photo that broke the internet 

Bikini drama

Still, Consuelos and Ripa’s most recent snappy reply to IG trolls has to be our favorite. Consuelos posted a stunning photo of his bikini-clad wife in crystal blue waters with the caption “Sultry Sundays with the sexy one are my fave…”

The innocent photo sent haters into a tizzy, and many of them suggested that at her age, Ripa shouldn’t be caught dead in a bikini. Consuelos wasn’t having it. In a lengthy response, he said,

I wanted to take a couple of days to weigh in. Probably should’ve earlier arguably. But I wanted to be above it. Well, not I’m not. I posted this pic of the women I most admire As a playful tribute to my wife who I’m proud of in endless ways. She works extremely hard in her professional life and her commitment to exercise, a healthy diet is admirable and the benefits show. 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. To all the males that had something negative to say. I suggest you bring it up with me if ever I’m lucky enough to run into you. I’m going to get back to my vacation now.. thanks for allowing me to express myself. I love you @kellyripa… keep killing it.

Showing them better than she can tell them

Ripa also dragged her bikini haters across the internet, and she did it all without saying anything at all. Instead of a witty remark, Ripa posted her workout routine on IG. In the video, Ripa is wearing workout gear and running as fast as she can while her husband holds a resistance band around her waist.

In a brilliant and hilarious clap back, Ripa suggested that instead of sitting around hating people ought to get healthy and active.

Keeping it in the family

It looks like Ripa and Consuelos aren’t the only clapback masters in their family. Their teenage daughter, Lola, also knows a thing or two about a snarky remark. Ripa posted a photo of Consuelos in a scene from Riverdale with the caption, “Where’s the beef? #daddy knows. Find out tonight on all new #Riverdale on the CW 8 EST.”

Lola was probably horrified by the suggestive caption and quickly replied on her mother’s page, “Stop posting Riverdale photos, we get it.” Ripa quickly quipped back, “Imma block you in a minute.”

Basically just don’t come for the Ripa/Consuelos clan.
