Michael Strahan made a cryptic tweet that seems it might be a swipe at Kelly Ripa and her recent “extreme” behavior. While the meaning behind the message is completely speculative at the moment, Strahan spoke on how “you can’t change other people.”

In the tweet, Strahan wrote, “You can’t change other people, but you can change how you are around them, and sometimes, a lot of times, that’s more than enough.”

Fans Commented on Kelly Ripa’s ‘Extreme’ Behavior

Recently, fans have commented on Ripa’s “extreme” behavior on the show Live with Kelly and Ryan. They claim the TV host has been acting odd while on the show. Many fans have commented on an Instagram post from the show.

One commenter wrote, “[Oh my God]… what has been wrong with Kelly the last couple of days.”

Other fans agreed Ripa has been “over the top” in recent episodes of the show and that she has been “constantly talking” in a “very hyper” active way. Another commenter wrote they found watching the show to be uncomfortable due to Ripa being “really extreme on the show this morning.”

Another commenter agreed, “I love you Kelly but you never let Ryan talk. It is The Kelly and Ryan Show, not just The Kelly Show.”

Michael Strahan Previously Co-Hosted ‘Live’

Before host Ryan Seacrest joined the show, Strahan hosted the show with Ripa. He came on the show nearly a year after Ripa hosted it alone with various co-hosts. Originally, Ripa co-hosted with Regis Philbin when she joined in 2000. But the talk show host retired from the show in 2011.

Strahan’s tenure on the show wasn’t long. He left the show in May 2016 to host Good Morning America and Seacrest quickly joined soon after. Strahan didn’t appear to hold any ill wishes to Ripa or the show. He spoke positively of his time during an interview.

“It was an experience!” Strahan told the New York Times. “One thing I will not do is alter my attitude for somebody else’s. I learned so much from Kelly, so much from Michael Gelman. When it was time to go, it was time to go. Certain things that were going on behind the scenes just caught up.”
