Riverdale star Lili Reinhart has apologized for a questionable Halloween tweet that many of her fans have deemed racist. As you can see in the post below, Reinhart tweeted that she "found her Halloween costume" along with a photo of a girl painted in all-black. Fans were quick to point out that image, meant to be a joke about the color of Reinhart's soul, could easily be considered blackface.

Reinhart apologized (opens in new tab), writing, "Never meant any harm. I can see how it could've been misinterpreted."

She also said (opens in new tab), "I did not mean for my tweet to come off that way. I can see how it was interpreted as being insensitive, completely. I saw the pic on a Halloween Instagram and didn't think it would be interpreted as being racially insensitive."
