Charles Melton Apologizes For Past Fat-Shaming Tweets

Charles Melton is apologizing after old tweets of him fat-shaming people resurfaced.

Screenshots of his alleged tweets mocking people’s appearances went viral this week, and the Riverdale actor has issued an apology.

“I’m truly sorry for making inconsiderate comments several years ago and apologize to anyone I hurt,” Charles shared with Us Weekly.

He adds, “What I posted and said was immature, offensive and inappropriate. I am ashamed of how I acted and there is no excuse for that behavior. I’m striving to do better and will use this experience to grow, helping others to understand how these types of statements are completely unacceptable.”

One of the tweets read: “I find it hilarious when fat people say they need to start eating right. When they have already mastered the art of chewing and swallowing :D.”

Charles just kicked off filming with Yara Shahidi on The Sun Is Also A Star.
