Riverdale Actor Faces Backlash After Supporting Fat-Shaming Online

By  | 

KJ Apa shot to fame out of seemingly nowhere thanks to his starring role on Riverdale. But while the 19-year-old doesn’t have much experience in Hollywood, he should know that EVERYONE he does online, the problematic things, is visible to the world.

The teenager is currently under fire (and understandably so) after he liked a fat-shaming comment on Instagram that read, “Making fun of fat people is the only thing that’s gonna stop those useless bags of sh*t dying a fat early death.”

We know KJ didn’t make the disgusting remark himself, but the fact that he liked it is just as problematic.

KJ has not yet addressed to drama to either apologize, or maybe even explain that the like was done by accident, which is something many fans speculate happened. NOT COOL, DUDE.
