Lili Reinhart is taking a break from Twitter because it's a "toxic site"
On Sunday, December 16th, actress Lili Reinhart took to her Instagram Story to let fans know that we won’t be seeing her around on Twitter—at least for a while. The Riverdale actress began by addressing the wealth of negativity on the platform, noting that she’ll be “taking a break from that toxic site.”
She concluded: “Taking a break from that toxic site and the people on it who feel the need to 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. K bye.”
Reinhart hasn’t officially deleted her Twitter account, so it’s likely she’s just taking a hiatus from the platform. And honestly, we don’t blame her. Fending off countless baseless and negative comments sounds exhausting, and we fully support her taking all the time she needs.
Reinhart isn’t the first celebrity to take time off for trolls. Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland recently also took a break from Twitter, writing, “You guys finally did it. Your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me.”
While this should go without saying, cyberbullying is never okay, and anyone who engages in it should seriously reevaluate their life choices. We’re sending tons of good vibes your way, Lili. Try to ignore the haters—because so many of us out here love and appreciate you.
