‘Riverdale’ Actress Lili Reinhart Criticized For “Racially Insensitive” Halloween Costume

Lili Reinhart, who most people know as Betty Cooper from the hit TV show Riverdale, has now found herself in the middle of some “controversy” via some people who are offended on Twitter. She posted a picture of a Demon Halloween costume, which was immediately interpreted by a few as racist:

As you can see, it’s pretty obvious Reinhart didn’t mean any harm, and she even apologized:

That didn’t stop the Twitter mob:

It looks as though all of the people criticizing her for the Halloween costume, are now criticizing her for the apology. Though it’s not been confirmed, it’s assumed that all of the people throwing the criticism in her direction are perfect people who have never made any mistakes in their entire lives.

It should be pointed out, though, that most rational and forgiving people came to the side of the actress:

I think we can all agree that Reinhart should never be forgiven for this mistake. After all, tweeting and apologizing twice for something you didn’t know would be called racist, is a crime more severe than murder.

This isn’t the last time we will see a controversy like this, or the last time we will see people closely monitoring celebrities in an effort to be really offended by something that they say, for whatever reason.

What do you think? Were you severely offended by the Reinhart’s tweet? Be sure to tell us in the comments!
