Earlier this week, the Riverdale actor took to her Instagram story shortly after Kim herself said that she was “starving” after the Met Gala. “So fucked on 100s of levels,” she wrote. “To openly admit to starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala.”

“The ignorance is other-worldly and disgusting,” she continued. “Please stop supporting these stupid, harmful celebrities whose entire image revolves around their bodies.”

While many thanked Lili for her message, others criticized her and claimed she was using Kim to get attention for herself. Well, Lili herself then tweeted again as everything went down — starting with a “*sigh.*”

“I do not say the things that I say because I want to be relevant or get attention,” she began.

*sigh*
I do not say the things that I say because I want to be relevant or get attention. I speak up because I don’t see enough people with large platforms calling out toxic behavior in our industry. Some people will never understand where I’m coming from and that’s okay ☯️🙏🏻

This isn’t the first time Lili has used social media to discuss body image. At the start of this year, she wrote about her own body anxieties, saying, “I didn’t think being in this industry, that is so obsessed with women’s bodies and weights, could ever mess with my own body acceptance and positivity. But it has. I wish I hadn’t grown up in a time where the media worshipped only one size of women.”
