Kelly Ripa is firing back over the outrage caused by her comments about her 22-year-old son Michael.

While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kelly said, “He hates paying his own rent and he’s chronically poor. I don’t think he ever really experienced extreme poverty like now. Now that he’s living on his own, he’s called three times, ‘Halloween envelope arrived?’ Just so he can have electricity. He’s experiencing being an adult.”

Many did not like her wording of “extreme poverty.”

Well, in an Instagram comment where a fan asked about the comments, Kelly explained, “Michael goes to college and is a senior and works full time. He is in his first non parent subsidized apt with roommates. I’m used to getting a lot of slack because people love to have fake outrage over something they didn’t see. They only read a headline and wag their tired fingers,” Kelly explains. “I didn’t grow up privileged and neither did @instasuelos We work and we expect our kids to as well. And the fact that a pack of fools want to bitch about that, i say let em.”
