Does age matter to you? Recently on Twitter, there was quite a discussion about the 40 year age difference between 30 yr old Lisa Paragi and her boyfriend 72-year-old Lionel Richie.
This is the post that started the heated discussion:
Recently on Twitter, Lisa Paragi defended herself against trolls who wouldn’t let up by posting a series of memes that indirectly responded to the negative comments.
Read via Rolling Out:
One Twitter user wrote, “I know we say if they’re both full adults age gaps don’t matter but something about Lionel Richie being FORTY when his gf was born just does not sit right.”
Another user also chimed in with similar remarks saying, “Not Lionel Richie dating a 30-year-old. Old men are so gross.”
Others wondered why their relationship was even being discussed. “Somebody wanna tell why everybody & their momma got an issue with Lionel Richie dating a 30 yr old (supposedly)?” One Twitter user asked.
“They are both legal consenting adults correct? He didn’t force her or coerce her or manipulate her, correct? So what’s the problem?”
Parigi wasted no time firing back at critics. On Wednesday, Feb. 24, she uploaded a number of cryptic posts to her Instagram story.
One of the posts featured a meme that included a photo of Britney Spears. The caption read, “When people talk about you… Me: You have that kind of time?”
The other post read, “Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.”
Despite the opposition they have faced, Parigi’s posts suggest the two are unbothered by the remarks of social media critics.
With all that said, our number one rule around these parts is to mind the business that pays you but we are curious?
