We don’t know what kind of bitter troll feels a need to leave nasty comments that compare the beauty of sisters, but one Instagram user did just that.
Their rude post compared Christie Brinkley’s oldest daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, to her 19-year-old daughter, Sailor Brinkley Cook. The troll used the opportunity to bash Alexa’s looks.
Alexa, unafraid to clap back at haters, gave a response so strong that the troll deleted his comment and ran for the hills. Metaphorically speaking.
Christie Brinkley and her daughters are sizzling hot. That shouldn’t really be up for debate. It’s barely subjective.
Nonetheless, some guy out there thinks that Alexa Ray Joel, (Christie’s daughter with Billy Joel), is unattractive.
At this point, you must be worried that this person has some sort of visual impairment. We wondered the same thing.
But no, this person was able to appreciate the gorgeous looks of Alexa’s younger sister, Sailor Brinkley Cook.
And he said as much after proud, gorgeous mom Christie Brinkley shared a behind-the-scenes look at Sailor’s photoshoot.
She’s stunning, right?
We can understand the natural human instinct to rank things. (I love making lists, even if it’s hard to choose a favorite movie, a favorite video game, a favorite Brinkley daughter)
What we can’t understand is why someone would use this as an opportunity to bash Alexa.
Specifically, why anyone would feel the need to straight-up post their negativity. Maybe some people just feel powerful if they hurt a famous person’s feelings.
Some dude decided to describe Alexa as “hideous” in a now-deleted comment.
Alexa’s epic clapback, however, is still standing.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Mr. Big Shot.”
Them’s fightin’ words, as they say.
“You may think I’m hideous, but I like the way I look.”
To be clear, most people like the way that Alexa looks.
Then her retort continues:
“And that’s really all the matters.”
She’s right — her own self-image matters more than what others think.
“(Besides, there’s a lot more to people than just what they look like.)”
And then, well, Alexa tells it like it is.
“But hey, continue being a shallow, hateful troll in life and see where it gets you!”
Quite frankly, this dude shouldn’t be surprised that she saw it and replied.
First of all, he probably wouldn’t have posted something so obviously inflammatory (and hyperbolic — he called her hideous?!) if he didn’t want to get a rise out of someone.
Out of either Alexa herself or another fan.
Second of all, Alexa is not shy about discourse in Instagram comments. Seriously, and you can look at her page for yourself, she’ll talk politics with absolutely anyone.
For the record, she mostly hopes for conciliatory politicians to make decisions for everyone.
She talks about wanting things like Wall Street held accountable when they do wrong but also valuing prosperity.
So her views definitely aren’t extreme.
Trolling is all good and well until you meet someone who won’t back down and whose fans will absolutely tear you to shreds.
And, again — though it’s not really the point of this whole thing — Alexa Ray Joel is absolutely gorgeous.
