Lili Reinhart Just Announced She's Taking a Break from Twitter Because of "Hate" and "Trolls"
Today, Lili Reinhart announced that she’s taking a break from the “cesspool” that is Twitter because of the toxic comments and negativity she’s faced on the platform. She announced the break via her Instagram Stories.
“Do people on Twitter ever get tired of being so negative and disrespectful to literally everyone and everything? Are they really that miserable?” she wrote in the first series of messages.
“There’s hate everywhere, but especially on Twitter. It’s like a cesspool for evil 15-year-olds who don’t know what the hell they’re talking about and have nothing better to do,” she continued.
“Taking a break from that toxic site and the people on it who feel the need to constantly attack me, my cast mates, my relationship, and Riverdale.”
“Hate to break it to you online trolls: spreading your hate and overall negativity online won’t make you any less miserable.”
Although she doesn’t specify what prompted her to take the break, there was some activity this weekend between her cast mates and a hater on Twitter. Elijah Daniel, a YouTuber, tweeted this pretty unnecessary critique of the show.
does the riverdale fanbase know the show sucks and don’t care or do they just not know
To which KJ Apa responded with this absolute zinger:
Do your fans know that you’re a fuckn idiot or do they just not care?
Ashleigh Murray added these tweets to the conversation, subtly calling him out for racism:
*tweets KJ Apa: regular vernaculars
*tweets black girl: LISTEN SIS
nice try, Eminem, nice try https://t.co/yyGkwyg8nZ
Lol he’s worried about a fanbase when none of us know who he is. People recognize me from the back of my head. What do you do?
It was never about his opinion. It’s not my man’s kind of show either. I pettywapped b/c I go for my friends & regardless of taste, we all work very hard. Was it necessary? 😂 Nah!
Lesson: You give it to twitterverse, it’ll be delivered. You don’t get to decide how it’s received
And then here’s Cole Sprouse, who’s definitely over it:
What a nice day to ruin my mood with social media.
Sums it up nicely, TBH. Lili’s break is even less surprising if you recall that in October she jumped to the defense of friend and costar Shannon Purser when people attacked her for kissing Cole’s character on the show. She was quick to point out how ridiculous it is to be mean to someone for something another person wrote in a script. So yeah, after all of that you’d probably cash out too if you were her.
Either way, hoping she makes her return to the platform v soon so she can keep dropping truth bombs such as these:
Holidays are great because websites produce all these articles like “gifts your best friend will love” and “affordable gifts for your mom this Christmas” and I get to see all this shit that I’m going to end up buying for myself!
