Given the fact that Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos are public personalities, they deal with hate on social media just like many other celebs. That being said, they are also well known for often firing back at the trolls, especially when they dare to diss their family.
But that does not mean the Live! co-host takes the haters seriously.
While chatting with InStyle for a new interview, Kelly revealed that in her opinion, social media is just ‘incredibly silly.’
She explained that ‘For me, I look at social media just like I look at most parts of my life – it is incredibly silly. It is an indulgence I tend to have when I am really either sitting in traffic, going to an airport, at the dentist, or when I just have some down time.’
‘When I clap back, I’m very bored, and I have a lot of time on my hands. I mean, people insult me all the time. I actually do not take it personally. My whole thing, I think it is funny when people insult me, and they cannot spell. So that is the only time you will see me weighing in. That is the only time because I am like, if you are going to insult someone, at least have a basic understanding of punctuation or spelling,’ Ripa went on to tell the outlet.
‘While insulting, just try not to look like a stooge. But for me it is all like, I really do not take it personally, and I do not think the trolls take it personally. Although I’ve been blocked by trolls, who insult me and preemptively block me, which I find very funny.’
