The talk show host posed in a string bikini for husband Mark Consuelos‘s Instagram shoot from their family’s beach vacation. And while many fans heartily agreed with his assessment that his 47-year-old wife was a “sexy one,” some trolls couldn’t resist posting mean comments about Ripa’s body and age.
“She has the body of a 12-year-old boy,” griped one poster. “Guess ‘sexy’ is a matter of opinion. She is adorable, but … ”
“Kelly’s gorgeous, but isn’t there a cutoff age where age appropriateness comes into play?” read another negative comment. “Just because you can rock a bikini, doesn’t mean you should. When you have teenagers whose friends can ogle pictures, then it’s creepy.”
One troll in particular piled on the criticism with remarks like “she has a guy’s figure” and “her body is nothing to be proud of.” The abuse prompted some Consuelos and Ripa fans to defend their faves.
“It’s 2018 and it’s time to stop shaming on others and stop the sexism,” one supporter wrote.
Of course, the Live with Kelly and Ryan host is pretty good at sticking up for herself when trolls strike. Though she’s yet to remark on this latest round of body shaming, Ripa has recently called out comments mocking her Riverdale star husband’s height and the size of her head.
