Madelaine Petsch Shares Important PSA Following 'Riverdale's Rape Scene

Madelaine Petsch Shares Important PSA Following 'Riverdale's Rape Scene

Riverdale took on the heavy topic of rape and consent this week on the show.

Nick St. Clair almost date raped Cheryl Blossom in last night’s episode before Veronica, Josie, Valerie and Melody shut that down and beat him up — and it only fired Madelaine Petsch to bring even more light to these issues with a PSA.

“[When I was] reading it, I felt like it was just another thing for Cheryl to deal with, and this is a huge thing,” Madelaine stresses to ET. “It makes sense for us to be bringing these [issues] to light and I think it’s very rare for TV shows to be doing that — especially ones that are more geared towards younger fans.”

She adds, “I think it’s important to kind of let them let [Riverdale's young audience] know what’s going on in the world and all that kinds of stuff, but at the same time, it’s just hard.
