Lili Reinhart came out as bisexual in an Instagram story, sharing that she will be attending an LGBTQ+ for Black Lives Matter protest in Los Angeles on Wednesday. June is Pride Month, but many organizers are looking to dedicate marches to standing in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.
"Although I've never announced it publicly before, I am a proud bisexual woman," she wrote. "And I will be joining this protest today. Come join."
Reinhart has reportedly split with Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse after more than three years together, though neither of them has personally confirmed the news. A source told Page Six, "Cole and Lili split before the pandemic hit, and have been quarantining separately. They remain good friends."
In recent days, Reinhart has spoken out on social media about the death of George Floyd.
“I want to say that I am ashamed of the racism that exists in this country," she tweeted earlier this week. "We are taught to look at our police officers as helpful and friendly when we learn about ‘leaders’ in elementary school. Our ‘leaders’ have failed us today."
I can’t begin to imagine the horror of worrying that you won’t be protected by your “leaders” because of the color of your skin.
I know that white privilege exists and I cpuld never fully understand what it’s like to be oppressed because of my race.
