Someone is Pretending to be ‘Riverdale’s’ Lili Reinhart and They Are Dreadfully Boring

Imagine that you’re pretending to be a celebrity for some reason. You actually manage to fool a magazine, a major magazine, into believing you’re a celebrity and you do an interview with them. Your plan has worked! They published the interview. If you went through all of that, wouldn’t you at least say something interesting or funny?

Someone impersonated Lili Reinhart and did an interview with Seventeen magazine which Seventeen briefly published before the real Lili Reinhart told them that whoever they talked to, it wasn’t her.

Reinhart also commented, saying on her Instagram story “For some bizarre reason, someone impersonated me in an interview with @seventeen. Nothing inappropriate was said, but those were not my words and I wanted to address it.”

That last part is what interests me.

The interview seems to be lost media now, as I can’t find it and it wasn’t cached by Google or anyone else and so after being removed it is just gone. But according to everyone who read and reported on the original article, she didn’t actually say anything interesting.

The interview mostly just said that there was more Betty and Archie romance in Riverdale’s future and probably just done by one of those weird fans called “shippers,” who are people who get way too involved in the relationships of fictional characters.

I get so creeped out by shippers, seriously. People sent death threats to writers on The 100 when they killed off a character because the actress quit the series and Marvel fans freaked out when they found out that Hawkeye was married to Lindsay Weir instead of in love with Black Widow.

But I mean, look at all the effort this person must have put into pulling this off just to be like “Yeah, Barchie, our ship is the best! Wooo!” Small-town morning radio DJs make better prank calls than that.
