Alexa Ray Joel is not about to let some stranger on the internet kill her confidence.
The daughter of model Christie Brinkley and singer Billy Joel clapped back at a hater on Instagram who called her “hideous” in a now-deleted Instagram comment.
The remark was made on a photo of Joel’s younger sister, Sailor Brinkley Cook, 19, posted on her mom’s Instagram page.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Mr. Big Shot,” Joel replied to the user. “You may think I’m hideous, but I like the way I look.”
Joel appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated alongside her mom and her sister in 2017, and got engaged to restaurateur Ryan Gleason on New Year’s Day 2018.
