To start with, Ripa says she does not take social media seriously. More than that, she finds it hilarious when a troll with a spelling problem tries to take her down.

God approves

She may be having a laugh when composing an online retort, but she’s incredibly good at it. In fact, in the mean online streets, Ripa is considered the 'Queen of Clapbacks'.
