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.

Check out the PSA Madelaine created below:

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD – DO NOT READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!

Madelaine Petsch just took on an extreme scene on Riverdale last night.

The actress’ character Cheryl Blossom was drugged by Nick St. Clair and he took her back to his hotel room with the clear intent of raping her.

“I’ll be honest, I cried,” Madelaine confessed to ET. “I cried and I called my mom. I didn’t tell her what happened, obviously, but I was like, ‘This is a really heavy episode.’”

She adds, “This is a huge topic, especially right now with what’s going on in the world, and it’s so close to home and it’s so important to portray it properly.”

“I felt a huge responsibility to make it real, but then also there was a part of me where my heart was breaking,” Madelaine shared. “So it was a very interesting moment for me to get that [script] and there was no warning coming.”

In the episode, Cheryl said she wanted to press charges against Nick for his actions and this is actually a storyline that JJJ hopes we get to see play out in full.

WHAT DID YOU THINK of Riverdale‘s latest episode?

Madelaine Petsch Lets Boyfriend Travis Mills Do Her Makeup in a New Video - Watch!

Madelaine Petsch‘s boyfriend, rapper Travis Mills, scored pretty high on his Riverdale trivia last month and now he continues to impress by being… kind of good at makeup?

In a new Youtube video on Madelaine‘s channel, the actress lets her boyfriend apply a full face of makeup, and it goes much better than you might expect.

Travis applies foundation (he even knew that it “corresponds” with the beauty blender), mascara (“Oh, hell yeah”), eyebrow tin, and more, and while he doesn’t know what all of the products are, it definitely isn’t bad.

Madelaine explains that he went to cosmetology school, so maybe that explains his prowess!

While the end result makes her scream that she looks “like an actual witch,” Madelaine‘s true thoughts come at the end of the video.

“Between me and you it actually doesn’t look that bad.”

Madelaine Petsch and Lili Reinhart may be BFFs IRL, but that certainly isn’t the case on Riverdale — and they’re okay with that.

“People ask me all the time: How can I be so mean to my best friends?” Madelaine recounted on Sweetwater Secrets, “but those are the people you want to do it with.”

“If I was to be an awful human being like Cheryl to people I didn’t know I would be mortified,” she continued.

That definitely makes sense: filming fighting scenes with your best friend would be much more comfortable than a complete stranger!

“It was really fun too to have the dynamic change between Betty and Cheryl,” Madelaine continued, referring to a scene from last week’s episode. “I think it was a really cool moment.”

Madelaine Petsch's Cheryl Blossom Gets To Wear Another Color Besides Red on 'Riverdale' Next Week

Madelaine Petsch's Cheryl Blossom Gets To Wear Another Color Besides Red on 'Riverdale' Next Week

Cheryl Blossom is known for her red, on red, on red wardrobe and it works for her — however, throughout the upcoming season on Riverdale, you’ll see more colors in her wardrobe — like blue.

Madelaine Petsch spoke to Glamour about Cheryl’s wardrobe and how it reflects her mood on the show, spilling that she’ll be venturing outside of the crimson color many times.

“I’m the only character who’s allowed to wear red on the show, which I find hilarious,” she revealed. “I have some exciting news—in the next episode, I get to wear blue. It’s a big moment for me.”

Last season, Cheryl did wear blue on a few occasions, but not as much as red — and that was all because she’s part of the Blossom family.

“I feel like Cheryl was almost forced to be ‘put together’ all the time, and when she had a hair out of place—or she was wearing white, instead of red—you knew something was about to go down,” Madelaine explained.

“That was because she was so controlled by her parents that they always wanted her to be perfect. I imagined they hired her a hair and makeup team, kind of thing.”

Now, the red in her wardrobe is downplayed — like the rose on her white dress in the premiere ep.

“We’re really playing with different colors but incorporating the red in smaller accessories and details, like my nails or my spider brooch, versus overall being red-on-red-on-red,” she adds. “Although, I still do have those days as well.”

Madelaine Petsch Spills Secrets About Cheryl Blossom's Signature Lip Color

Madelaine Petsch Spills Secrets About Cheryl Blossom's Signature Lip Color

Madelaine Petsch always wears a bright, and distinct, shade of red lipstick on Riverdale — a shade that will remain nameless until the end of the show.

Speaking with People, the actress opened up about Cheryl’s signature tone and teases that she’ll try out a completely different shade for season two.

“It’s a secret, unfortunately,” Madelaine shared about the exact shade. “But we have a couple different variations we’re bringing in this season so it’s not only bright red, but we’re going to do some dark reds and even some nude colors this season believe it or not.”

Can you imagine Cheryl in nude lipstick? Us, either!

Madelaine also shared that she’s the one putting on her own lipstick in the makeup chair.

“It’s just this really weird thing. We use a matte lipstick so it stays no matter where you put it — and I sit there and I’m very careful, and it’s just easier putting it on yourself then someone else doing it,” she reveals.

“That way I’m not having an anxiety attack hoping they don’t get it on my skin and then we’ll have to start all over,” Madelaine says. “I’m the same way with my eyebrows. I’m very particular about the. I’m a redhead, but my eyebrows are blonde essentially, so I have to fill them in to look natural and I feel like nobody really gets that, so I do that.”

Riverdale airs on Wednesdays on The CW.
