'Riverdale' star Lili Reinhart apologizes for 'tone deaf' Breonna Taylor post

posing topless on the beach, with the caption, “Now that my sideboob has gotten your attention, Breonna Taylor’s murderers have not been arrested. Demand justice.”

She was quickly called out for trivializing the issue. Within a few hours, Reinhart said she had made a mistake. “It was never my intent to insult anyone and I’m truly sorry to those that were offended.”

Reinhart insisted that she’s always tried to use her platform — for starters, the TV star has 3.1 million followers on Instagram — for good. However, she said she understood that, even though she had good intentions, her caption came off as “insensitive” and “tone deaf.”

I’ve always tried to use my platform for good. And speak up about things that are important to me.

I also can admit when I make a mistake and I made a mistake with my caption. It was never my intent to insult anyone and I’m truly sorry to those that were offended.
