Charles Melton who plays Reggie in the second season of Riverdale, is not very like by Riverdale fans at the moment after screenshots of his alleged tweets mocking people’s appearances back in 2012 have now gone viral.
He’s now apologising for his remarks, saying in an exclusive statement to Us Weekly:
I’m truly sorry for making inconsiderate comments several years ago and apologize to anyone I hurt. What I posted and said was immature, offensive and inappropriate. I am ashamed of how I acted and there is no excuse for that behavior.
I’m striving to do better and will use this experience to grow, helping others to understand how these types of statements are completely unacceptable.
The alleged tweets, according to screenshots, read:
It goes without saying that fat-shaming is NOT COOL and a horrible thing to do to others. Melton obviously feels terrible about these remarks he made and he was most likely just trying to be funny at the time for attention, but it just goes to show - once something goes on the internet, it's there forever.
So watch what your say and do people!
