Alexa Ray Joel: Christie Brinkley Daughter Claps Back When Called “Hideous” by Troll!

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.

Alexa Ray Joel reply

“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.

Joel Taylor Death Prompts FBI Investigation. Here is Why.

We have a pretty major and surprising update on the sudden death of Joel Taylor.

As previously reported, the former Storm Chaser star was found dead on Tuesday, passing away at the very young age of 38.

Multiple friends and ex-co-workers took to social media to confirm the sad news and also to pay tribute to Taylor, who graduated from the University of Oklahoma and who was rose to fame on the aforementioned Discovery Channel reality show.

He was admired by nearly everyone in the field of meteorology.

At the time of these reports and Twitter posts, however, the circumstances around Taylor’s death was unknown.

And the same could be said for his cause of death.

Now, however, TMZ and People Magazine have provided many more details on just what transpired Tuesday morning.

For starters, Taylor died on board the Royal Caribbean Cruise ship Harmony of the Seas.

It left from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico after his corpse was discovered by a fellow passenger.

“The U.S. Coast Guard in San Juan, Puerto Rico was notified today in the afternoon by the Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas cruise ship that they had a death on board,” Ricardo Castrodad, public affairs officer for the Coast Guard’s San Juan sector, told People.

Taylor’s family has reportedly identified his body.

At the time of Taylor’s passing, the ship was hosting Atlantis Events’ all-gay Caribbean Cruise; Olivia Newton-John was the headlining act.

According to TMZ sources, drugs were prevalent on board the cruise liner.

It seems as though Taylor was partaking, per a law enforcement official who said the following to the celebrity gossip site:

“It appears the death could be an overdose and Joel Taylor was consuming controlled substances.”

A passenger who spent time with Taylor adds that he had consumed so much GHB on the dance floor early Tuesday morning that he was rendered unconscious and carried back to his cabin by two people.

A few hours later, his body was discovered and the authorities were called in.

TMZ goes on to write that the abundance of GHB, cocaine and ecstasy on the boat has triggered an FBI investigation.

Numerous individuals were apparently arrested for possession before the cruise left Fort Lauderdale and this agency will be looking into how the drugs ended up on board the ship.

And not merely on board, either, but on board in significant quantities.

timmer tribute

Taylor’s close friend and former colleague Reed Timmer was among the first to publicly mourn his passing on social media.

“RIP my best friend and storm chasing partner, Joel Taylor. I am shocked and absolutely devastated by the loss of my incredible, caring friend,” Timmer Tweeted along with image of the pals when they were chasing storms together since 2008.

He added:

“We chased so many intense storms, and I wish we could have just one more storm chase. I’ll miss you forever, Joel. We lost a legend.”

Added the Discovery Channel in a statement:

“We are so saddened to hear about Joel’s passing. We will always remember him fondly as an incredible meteorologist and driver of ‘The Dominator.’

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time.”

We echo this sentiment. May Joel rest in peace.
