TV host Kelly Ripa has the most unusual guilty pleasure. She admits that her favorite pastime is calling out toxic online commenters who have no filter and love to 'tell it as it is'.
The time a fan called her 'too old'
The happy-go-lucky host of Live With Kelly and Ryan has continued to get the short end of the stick with fans who enjoy commenting on her marriage to actor Mark Consuelos a little too much.
Weeks ago, Ripa ripped an offensive commenter apart after the Instagram user suggested that Mark deserved better because Ripa looked too old for him. The TV host and her husband are 48 and 47, respectively, and in addition to holding down an enviable TV job, she is also a mother of three.
Kelly's guidebook to using social media
She recently told InStyle magazine how she and her husband figured out the trick to maintaining a positive presence on social media while also ensuring that their pages are where online trolls go to die.
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.
While insulting, try not to look like a stooge. But for me it's like, I really don't take it personally and I don’t think the trolls take it personally.
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'.
But she doesn't go around looking for trouble.
Her golden rule is 'only the troll gets trolled'. She believes that she's doing God’s work. Do you agree?
