Kelly Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos, clapped back so hard against her bikini-body shamers
If you’re a pop culture guru, then you might have heard that Kelly Ripa was body shamed after her husband, Mark Consuelos, shared a photo of her in a bikini on Instagram. The photo, which shows the Live with Kelly and Ryan host flashing her abs during a recent vacation getaway, was met with a number of negative and mean-spirited comments. And Consuelos was having none of it.
“I wanted to take a couple of days to weigh in. Probably should’ve earlier arguably. But I wanted to be above it. Well, now I’m not. I posted this pic of the women I most admire,” he wrote in the comments of the post.
"As a playful tribute to my wife who I’m proud of in endless ways. She works extremely hard in her professional life and her commitment to exercise, healthy diet is admirable and the benefits show. Yes she’s wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come."
"If that offends you in some way,' he went on, "if it triggers you, or some other psychosis you’re suffering from, I suggest you get over it and get used to it. To all the males that had something negative to say. I suggest you bring it up with me if ever I’m lucky enough to run into you. I’m going to get back to my vacation now.. thanks for allowing me to express myself."
Consuelous ended his Instagram post by focusing on what really matters. “I love you @kellyripa… keep killing it,” he added.
While we’re so disappointed that the actor was ever put in a position in which he needed to defend Ripa in the first place, we’re so glad he did. The couple, who have been married for almost 22 years, are the definition of #RelationshipGoals.
