The Best Celebrity Clapbacks of the Summer
The 47-year-old mother of three took some time out from enjoying her vacation to respond to a person who questioned her work ethic in the comment section.
"She's the only anchor with the whole summer off," the commenter wrote under the selfie in response to another fan, as captured in a screenshot by Instagram account CommentsByCelebs. "She doesn't work that hard to begin with."
Ripa shot back, "I'm not an anchor, I don't have the whole summer off, and I work extremely hard. Anything else?"
The Waitress star defended her engagement to David Foster on Twitter in July with a clapback that had her fans and followers take notice. "Y'all should be worrying more about registering to vote and midterm elections than who’s marrying me," McPhee wrote, adding, "Thank you for coming to my TED talk."
Two days later, she was back for more, thanking her fans for their support. "Ok my fans have been making SEVERAL points in my mentions and i’ve loved reading all your comments," she wrote. "Thanks for defending me & doing all this dragging lol. love you all ❤"
The meaning behind the name of Rihanna's newly released black eyeliner — Cuz I'm Black — pays homage to the singer's most epic clapback ever.
Longtime fans of Rihanna will likely recall the story behind the liner's name. Back in 2011, an online hater tweeted, "Why does her hair look so nappy?" in response to the singer's then newly released cover art for her single, "Man Down."
RiRi’s response quickly became one of the most celebrated star comebacks ever. "Cuz I’m black bitch!!!!" Rihanna replied on Twitter. And seven years later, an eyeliner name was born.
The actress had the perfect comeback — and grammar lesson — for a troll who tried to criticize her body on Instagram in August. Philipps posted a post-workout selfie from her favorite LEKfit class, only to have a commenter reply, “Ughhhh, you’re rolls are showing.”
But, as Comments By Celebs noticed, the mom of two quickly took him down a notch with her reply.
“I feel like a man of your age should know the difference between YOUR and YOU’RE. YOUR is POSSESSIVE, as in ‘YOUR rolls are showing.’ (Get it? The rolls BELONG to me.) YOU’RE is an abbreviation for YOU ARE, as in YOU’RE CLEARLY AN A—— BODYSHAMING LOSER,” Philipps wrote.
The star, who has been keeping with a menswear theme throughout her A Simple Favor press tour, posted a photo of her plaid Roland Mouret suit — and not everyone was a fan. After one follower commented on the post suggesting she should find a new stylist, the actress had a cheeky response.
"I say this with so much love & respect for you babe, please hire a stylist or fire the one you're currently with," @gabeluna wrote.
Lively — who famously does not work with a stylist — replied, "Thank you for the tips, sir. Alas, I've tried to fire @blakelively so many times. But that b*tch just keeps coming back. She won’t leave me alone."
Armed with a tea emoji, the Sweetener hitmaker hit back at Twitter users who called her "dumb" for calling the interlude on her album "pete" — now "pete davidson" — inspired by her fiancé. "The truth is [tea emoji] i been the f— thru it and life’s too short to be cryptic n s— about something as beautiful as this love I’m in. so ǝʇǝԀ it is," Grande tweeted in June when another fan insinuated that her relationship is moving too fast.
KIM KARDASHIAN WEST
It all started on The Shade Room's Instagram. Alongside a photo of Kardashian West heading to a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Tyson Beckford commented, "Sorry I Don’t care for it personally," and "She is not real, doctor f—ed up on her right hip," suggesting that she's had plastic surgery.
In an Instagram comment, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star responded to Beckford’s diss, snapping back, "Sis we all know why you don’t care for it," with a trio of choice hashtags, including a cup of tea.
The mom of three faced serious backlash for her comments, with many fans accusing her of implying that Beckford is gay. Kardashian West vehemently denied claims thats she's homophobic in an interview with Big Boy on Real 92.3.
"Really, dude? Like, you’re going to body-shame me? Like, okay. Okay. Okay, sis. You’re going to body-shame me?" she said. "People were sending me stuff on his page, he keeps on going and going and going, and I’m just like, dude, that’s so female lame to me. That’s just lame to me. And for anyone to say that I am homophobic with the comment of saying sis? All my best friends are gay, I support the community, I love the community, they love me, that has nothing to do with this."
