Kelly Ripa had the most brutally perfect response to a troll who said she was 'too old' for her husband
If I referred to a "clapback queen", you'd probably picture Chrissy Teigen or Blake Lively. And you'd be right too, as those are two ladies who know how to handle themselves. Nonetheless, it's time for them to move aside, and welcome the new queen of throwing shade: Kelly Ripa.
The Live! with Kelly and Ryan co-host was recently attacked by a troll on social media and showed everyone watching that it's not wise to mess with her.
It all started when her husband Mark Consuelos published a picture on Instagram of him holding up a #HeForShe sign, announcing in the caption that he would be partnering with the solidarity campaign for the advancement of gender equality, initiated by UN.
"Now more than ever...We should want to live in a world where we’re all equal," he wrote in the caption. "That’s why I’m partnering with @HeForShe - to champion real change in gender equality. I am #HeForShe. Are you? Show your support at www.HeForShe.org/COMMIT. Because we’re #MorePowerfulTogether".
In the comment section, Kelly expressed how proud she was of her husband for supporting the worthy cause, writing: "You make me proud @instasuelos".
However, not everyone was focusing on the important message that the American actor was sending out. In fact, one person missed the point completely, instead choosing to tag Kelly and be outrageously offensive.
"@KellyRipa yes he is so handsome but you need to go Kelly you look to old for him, sorry but you do," they wrote.
Luckily though, the 47-year-old television producer doesn't offend easy - and if you do insult her, you best be prepared for the mammoth amount of shade that is destined to come your way after.
Rather than get mad, Kelly took the time to point out that the internet troll had some major issues with their grammar.
She replied: "You need to learn how to spell the word too sweetie. As in you're too stupid to be with my young, handsome husband."
Ohhh the sass! Her point stands though: if you're going to try to offend someone, make sure you've at least got the grammar to back yourself up. Or, how about just don't be rude?
It turns out Kelly isn't the only one in the family who can give as good as she gets. On the same post, her 47-year-old husband Mark got himself in the clapback game too when a different commenter claimed she was "done" following him because of the feminist post.
Replying in the way that everyone in this situation should do, he wrote: "You don't support equal pay for women? I think, by your profile pic that you are a woman. I assume you have a daughter or granddaughters? Do you think they should be paid equally?" Boom!
Is this TV couple a clapback dream team? I think so! We bow down to them.
