After being shipped by super fans with Riverdale co-stars Cole Sprouse and KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart has clapped back telling people to give her some privacy.
I get that the whole shipping thing is just for fun, but I can see how it could get annoying for the actor.
It’s only natural for fans of shows to ship co-stars. It’s what people do. Especially when there are love triangles on the show and actors playing love interests. Riverdale fans have persistently linked Lili Reinhart to Cole Sprouse even though neither one of them has addressed the rumors and now fans are speculating that Lili may be more than friends with KJ Apa. Judging from a recent Tumblr post, if Lili thought the whole shipping thing was funny before, she’s not laughing anymore.
She took to Tumblr recently to set the record straight on all the relationship gossip saying QUOTE – “It’s horrifying how invested some people are in my love life. Emphasis on ‘my.’ It is mine. It is private. If a stranger’s love life is causing you anger, frustration or anxiety… please reevaluate your priorities. I also want to point out that there is a difference between shipping Betty and other characters, and shipping me with literally everyone I make eye contact with. There are so many other things to focus your attention and energy on.”
Realizing that Lili was clearly affected by the rumors, fans quickly began to shower her with tweets of support and encouragement.
One fan tweeted – “Ok I feel so extremely bad for Lili having to actually say that her and Kj are just friends, like excuse me but isn’t it obvious grow up ppl.” Another fan took a slightly different approach writing – “You can ship whatever you want but don’t do it in front of people it makes Lili and KJ uncomfortable (advice, btw I don’t ship irl people ).”
So the lesson in all of this is have fun, fangirl out and fantasize about your favorite show, but try your best to separate characters from actors. Even though Brad and Angelina were totally an item after Mr. and Mrs. Smith. I digress, what do you guys think about Lili’s Tumblr post?
