Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos recently had their vacation interrupted by ignorant, body-shaming trolls. But on Watch What Happens Live Wednesday night, the couple revealed that they were more baffled by the Internet commenters than anything else.
Back in March, Consuelos posted a photo of Ripa wearing a string bikini in the ocean, and captioned it, “Sultry Sundays with the sexy one are my fave.”
But apparently, that was too much for some nasty commenters. Some people criticized Ripa for (gasp!) daring to wear a bikini at age 47, insinuating that she was too old for a piece of swimwear. And it wasn’t the first time the couple had been shamed on Instagram; just a week before that, they hit back at commenters who said Consuelos was short and Ripa’s head was too big.
Ripa and Consuelos were not having it. Consuelos even posted a lengthy response supporting his wife, who looked amazing, obviously. “Yes, she’s wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come,” he wrote on Instagram. “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.”
On Watch What Happens Live, the couple responded to a viewer who called in to ask about that bikini photo. “It was bizarre, it was like, what else are you supposed to wear at the beach?” Consuelos said. “I mean I wasn’t in synagogue, I was at the beach,” Ripa joked. “I mean … if you come up with an option let me know.”
And clearly, they aren’t letting those haters get them down. On Monday, Ripa posted a photo with herself and her “man crush every damn day.”
