Renowned American actress, Lili Reinhart breaks the silence over ongoing controversy. Riverdale star after being impersonated in front of a prominent American magazine, took to her social media account to address the fallacious reporting. On Twitter, the magazine shared its public statement. They presented the incorrect information and also confessed to being played by an imposter.
They said, “Today, we briefly published a story with information we were lead to believe was from Lili Reinhart. However, it was brought to our attention that the person who contacted us was, in fact, an impersonator and had no connection to the Riverdale star. We want to sincerely apologize to Lili and her fans for this unfortunate situation.”

“We reacted swiftly by removing the story from our site and regret the erroneous reporting. We take full responsibility and will be internally reviewing our editorial and fact-checking processes to ensure something like this does not happen again.” They concluded.
Lili took to her Instagram account promptly after the magazine posted its apology note, and directly addressed the situation with a post that stated, “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.”
