Riverdale's Lili Reinhart Apologizes for Racially Insensitive Halloween Costume Tweet

Lili Reinhart, star of The CW’s hit show Riverdale, has issued an apology after posting a photo of a Halloween costume that was racially insensitive.

The 21-year-old actress tweeted out a photo with the caption, “Found my Halloween costume!! Inspired by the color of my soul,” which you can see here.

Lili then took to Twitter to apologize to her fans after they called her out.

“I did not mean for my tweet to come off that way. I can see how it was interpreted as being insensitive, completely. I saw the pic on a Halloween Instagram and didn’t think it would be interpreted as being racially insensitive,” she responded. “I apologize. Never meant any harm. I can see how it could’ve been misinterpreted.”

    This wasn’t blackface. Plain and simple. Silly for this to be blown up everywhere. Must be a slow news day.

    So annoyed by the sensitivity of some people these days. I guess I better stop saying I like my coffee as dark as my soul because that CLEARLY means I’m being racist… NOT.

  • Autumn Leaves

    So many people overreacting. That isn’t black face. Most people know the origin of black face and this doesn’t come close.

    When are people going to stop apologizing for everything. This was in no way blackface and she should have stood up to that by saying “if you are interpreting this as blackface then the problem is yours because this is just a demonic costume nothing more, nothing less and I will not apologize”. This is getting so ridiculous that is takes away from the true racial problems. Just stop the madness.
