Kelly, you look to old for him. The show of solidarity for women prompted Ripa, his wife of 22 years, to comment, "You make me proud". "Sorry but you do".

Kelly was quick to come in with the ideal clap back: You need to learn how to spell the word "too" sweetie.

"Ripa wasted no time in clapping back, noting, "@mariaxdiax, you need to learn how to spell the word too sweetie. "Ps, he likes proper grammar too, you dope".

Ripa and Consuelos, who tied the knot in 1996, are both 47. After the young Conseulos commented on one of her mother's many photos promoting her hubby's gig on the wildly-popular CW drama with "Stop posting Riverdale photos, we get it", Ripa reminded her offspring who the queen is. While #HeForShe - which gained momentum after Emma Watson's 2014 United Nations speech urging men to join the fight for women's rights - is about establishing gender equality, numerous actor's fans misunderstood his message. Consuelos replied. "I think, by your profile pic that you are a woman".

She made a decision to come forward after "assessing her memories" and consulting with her lawyer, the magazine said. Blasey Ford is scheduled to testify regarding her allegations before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Ripa and Consuelos are both 47, but the TV personality didn't even bring that up when she clapped back at the social media troll.

"Imma block you in a minute", she told her daughter.

"He hates it, but I love it", she said.

The mom of three added that despite her occasional responses, she won't try to take down every troll who comes her way.
