Kelly Ripa's bikini pic posted on her husband's Instagram account has drawn scores of body-shaming trolls. On Monday, Mark Consuelos posted a photo of his wife wearing a string bikini on their vacation, calling her "the sexy one." Some didn't find the Live! co-host all that "sexy" and weren't shy about making their opinions known on Consuelos' Instagram account.
The negative reactions have caught the attention of the mainstream press. Fox News reports that the trolls came out in full force bashing for Kelly Ripa is wearing a bikini.
There were those who didn't think a woman at the age of 47 should be parading around in skimpy swimwear.
"Kelly's gorgeous, but isn't there a cutoff age where age appropriateness comes into play? Just because you can rock a bikini, doesn't mean you should," one commented.
It wasn't just Ripa's age that had the trolls spewing disapproving comments. Others felt her body type wasn't anything special. Someone wrote that Ripa's "body is nothing to be proud of."
A few compared Kelly's body to that of a young boy's.
"Cool @instasuelos didn't know you were into little boys, but not totally surprising," another user wrote.
"She has the body of a 12 year old boy. Guess 'sexy' is a matter of opinion- She is adorable- but...," someone else replied.
