There has been controversy around some celebrities admitting to restricting their diet before events and award shows such as The Met Gala in order to fit into a specific outfit.

Riverdale star Lili Reinhart is not happy with the narrative being painted by some around the prep for these events, after the Met Gala on Monday the actress took to Instagram stories to share her thoughts.

She wrote, “To walk on a red carpet and do an interview where you say how starving you are… because you haven’t eaten carbs in the last month…all to fit in a f–king dress? So wrong. So f—-d on 100s of levels.

“To openly admit to starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala. When you know very well that millions of young men and women are looking up to you and listening to your every word. The ignorance is other-worldly disgusting,” she continued.

“Please stop supporting these stupid, harmful celebrities whose entire image revolves around their bodies. I am not generally an angry person but I swear to god, the toxicity of this industry sometimes really gets to me and I have to do my little Instagram-story rants to release my rage,” she said.

Although Lili didn’t mention any celeb in general, this comes just after Kim Kardashian admitted to losing 16lbs to fit into her Marilyn Monroe dress for the Met Gala. The reality star revealed she had a very strict diet and workout routine in the weeks coming up to the event but insisted she “didn’t starve [herself]”.

This isn’t the first time Lili Reinhart has opened up about body image, admitting she has her own struggles, saying back in March, “Reminder to myself, and to all—you don’t need a flat or perfectly toned stomach to wear a crop top… These ‘summer body’ trends are toxic. Your body is ready for summer no matter what it looks like. Don’t let it stop you from enjoying anything.”

The actress has previously spoken out about her struggles and the importance of normalising the conversation saying, “It’s heartbreaking that this feeling is understood by so many of us. Let’s continue to talk about it. Normalize it. Empathize with others. Show compassion and kindness.”
