Madelaine Petsch is 'Overwhelmed' By All The Support For Cheryl's Coming Out on 'Riverdale'

Madelaine Petsch is overwhelmed by the support coming from Riverdale fans and the LGBT community after Cheryl’s coming out on the show.

“I think it is something she’s known for a long time and her mom pushed down about her and hated about her that has made Cheryl hate herself because her mom doesn’t love her,” the 23-year-old actress shared at PaleyFest over the weekend.

Madelaine also shared that after Cheryl’s coming out, she’s gotten so much love from the fanbase.

“The response [has been] overwhelming. I feel so welcome by [the LGBT] community,” she shared. “I think it’s an important storyline. I’m so happy to bring that storyline to light, and unfortunately, it’s still happening — parents not accepting their children.”

“Toni is helping her explain that love for herself. It’s a really beautiful and amazing relationship.”

We’ll get to see more of Cheryl and Toni in this week’s episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays on The CW.
