Kelly Ripa snaps at fan who claims she used a filter on natural pic

Kelly Ripa won’t be accused of filtering her fresh-faced photos.

The “Live With Kelly and Ryan” co-host shared an au naturel selfie with husband Mark Consuelos that prompted many fans to note how young the longtime couple look — but one fan claimed, “as beautiful as she is it’s def a filter!”

Despite the endless amounts of compliments on the photo, Ripa hit back at the doubtful fan, writing, “if it was a filter i would look amazing. It’s just the angle and sunset light.”

Ripa, 50, didn’t stay serious for too long, as she joked with other fans about how well “empty nesting” is working out for her and Consuelos since all of their three kids, Michael, Lola and Joaquin, have moved out.

“settled right in,” Ripa responded to a fan who noted living kid-free suited her.

Pal Andy Cohen also said the photo was a “cute pic,” to which Ripa responded, “it’s the angle [laughing emoji].”

This is hardly the first time Ripa has clapped back at a fan who has left thoughts in the comments section of her posts. Last August, the morning show host snapped at a troll who wasn’t pleased with her lack of “personal grooming” during the pandemic.

“The only issue I have with this show (and I watch daily since I am at home nowadays) is the lack of personal grooming,” he commented. “I mean it’s a nationally televised show. And I have to get dressed for every Zoom work call so why can’t you guys.”

“I’ll bring it up at the next meeting,” Ripa quipped in response.

In a May 2020 episode, Ripa also quipped, “First of all, let me just say, to people commenting on our appearance: How dare you and you’re lucky that we actually put clothes on,” she told viewers. “It’s harder than you think to roll out of bed and come to a TV show.”

Continued Ripa, “Certain things don’t matter anymore and my appearance is one of those things that just don’t matter.”
