It was announced last week that Kim Kardashian will be filling in for Kelly Ripa on Live with Kelly and Ryan on August 28, and fans have been making it known that they’re not exactly impressed with the choice ever since.
Following the announcement that Kim will be taking over Ripa’s seat and sitting alongside Ryan Seacrest on the morning show as Kelly continues her vacation, fans have lashed out on social media and made it clear that they have no plans to tune in to see the reality star try out her hosting skills next week.
“I will never watch this show again,” Twitter user @AuntKim328 hit back after hearing of Kardashian’s new gig alongside Ryan for the day. “And I’m a long-time fan of Kelly’s – all the way back from her days as Hayley on All My Children.”
“Thanks for the advanced warning will be certain not to watch,” Live with Kelly and Ryan fan @skepticaljlw then added amid the boycott backlash, while @bobtorres4 scathing responded to the news of Kim temporarily joining the series, “They are putting a piece of garbage like this on a family show, watch no more.”
“Are you freaking kidding me @RyanSeacrest? I refuse to watch @KimKardashian as a cohost, she’ll jinx Kelly’s spot!” @Gorgoro7 wrote amid the big TV news, claiming that Kardashian “has NO talent.”
