Kelly Ripa is showing the haters can hate while shouting out the world's most important priority. The 50-year-old "Live With Kelly and Ryan" host has finally shared paparazzi snaps of her on NYC streets and in a sweatshirt giving a nod to COVID expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, although the photos come as the pint-sized star worries fans with her weight. Kelly updated her Instagram on Thursday night with her late October street snaps – these came just around the time she sparked weight worries. Check it out below.

Fans Calling Her 'Too Skinny'

Scroll for the street photos. Kelly, already told she "needs a sandwich" by a fan during a backstage video last month, really ramped up the comments when she posted a pantless "Wonder Woman" Halloween costume. Despite being a 2017 throwback, the gold-adorned and booted look sparked comments.

Kelly, told to "eat something" by a fan calling her "too skinny," was also told: "Kelly, you are adorable," with the user adding: "But I know one day, we will read about your battle with food."

'Business As Usual'

Keep scrolling for the photo. Kelly's outing, coming October 30 and seeing her dwarfed by a giant umbrella, brought one snazzy pair of black cigarette pants, plus a light sweatshirt with "FAUCI" written across it. The former "All My Children" actress, who voted blue in the 2020 U.S. elections, was giving the immunologist and coronavirus know-it-all her approval, also seemingly shading a known enemy of Fauci – POTUS Donald Trump.

Kelly's repost, shared with her 2.8 million followers, came captioned by the FARRYNHEIGHT makers of the sweatshirt.

"KELLY RIPA WEARING OUT FAUCI SWEATSHIRT IN NYC," the brand wrote, adding: "Business as usual." Click here for the shots – scroll for more.

Ryan Seacrest's COVID Scare Leaves Her Solo

Kelly and "Live!" co-host Ryan Seacrest haven't stopped making headlines amid the pandemic. In September, the twosome ended a 180-day stint of quarantine-set video-streaming, with October seeing 45-year-old Ryan ditch Kelly for two days straight – first, for a day "off," then to await a COVID test result after reports he was suffering from a "minimal cough."

Kelly has, herself, admitted that everything has changed on-set since the pandemic, mentioning "all these" restrictions. Nobody's allowed on-set without testing negative for the virus.

Reveals What She Eats

Those fearing for Kelly's weight might want to take a peek at her 2020 food diary. Prompted by Harper's Bazaar, the mom of three logged her eating, revealing a healthy breakfast of oatmeal with almond butter and chopped apple, "microfoods" lunch salads, plus an obsession with the "2015-2017" avocado on toast trend.

Kelly, who is alcohol-free, is also a lover of the alkaline diet. The pint-sized star also works out like a pro, telling The Cut she loves runs through Central Park and SoulCycle.
