The 17-year-old will be heading off to New York University in the fall. Her older brother, 22-year-old Michael, attends the same school.

It’s been a busy end of the school year for the teen. Last week, Ripa shared photos of her daughter attending her senior prom.

The seemingly harmless photos ignited a firestorm on social media, as many fans claimed Lola’s dress wasn’t appropriate.

However, many Instagram users jumped to the teen’s defense, Dearly reported. One fan wrote:

She is a beautiful young woman but cannot believe people are commenting about her body. She is someone’s child!! Why is it ok to comment about her body?!?!?

Thankfully, it doesn’t seem the social media drama stopped Lola from enjoying her graduation ceremony.
