Mark Consuelos has had enough of all the social media haters. The Riverdale star recently posted a bikini pic of his wife, Kelly Ripa, which sparked negative comments about her appearance. Consuelos waited a few days to cool off before defending his wife’s bikini body and basically telling fans to grow up.
According to People, fans slammed Ripa, 47, on social media after Consuelos snapped a few pics of her amazing bikini body. Although some of the comments were positive, several trolls said that Ripa should not be wearing a bikini at her age. Consuelos didn’t acknowledge the trolls at first, but he eventually caved and hit back pretty hard.
“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,” Consuelos said about Ripa’s decision to rock a bikini.
Consuelos went on to praise Ripa for working hard to maintain a fit body and healthy diet. He also said that Ripa loves wearing bikinis and will probably continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Based on Consuelos’ reaction, fans would be wise not to criticize Ripa about it in the future.
Although Ripa received some negative comments on social media, a lot of fans proudly expressed their support. In fact, the bikini photos got over 70,000 likes, with many people pointing out that the images simply show how much Consuelos loves his wife.
Ripa and Consuelos tied the knot 21 years ago and are still going strong. Apart from the beachside photos, Skeet Ulrich, who stars alongside Consuelos on Riverdale, recently opened up about his co-star’s marriage. Ulrich believes that Consuelos and Ripa were meant to be together and revealed that they shared a deep bond. Ripa and Consuelos share three kids together: Michael, 20, Lola, 16, and Joaquin, 15.
Ripa rose to fame when she starred on All My Children back in 1990. Consuelos joined the cast of the soap opera in 1995 and played Ripa’s romantic interest on the show. Although it has been almost thirty years since Ripa started working on All My Children, her and Consuelos do not look like they have aged a bit.
In fact, it’s hard to tell the difference between pictures of them when they first started dating and photos of them in 2018. Consuelos is as handsome as ever while Ripa is still in remarkable shape, as her recent bikini pics prove.
Kelly Ripa has not commented on Mark Consuelos’ post regarding the social media trolls, but it’s probably a safe bet that she couldn’t be happier about him coming to her defense.
