Riverdale's Shannon Purser Reveals She's Bisexual

Shannon Purser opened up about her sexuality last week on Twitter and now she is coming out to fans as bisexual.

The 19-year-old Riverdale actress wrote a powerful message to her fans in which she talked about coming out to her friends and family, and also apologized to fans who might have been offended by a recent tweet she wrote.

“I don’t normally do this, but I figure now is as good a time as any to get personal,” Shannon wrote in the note. “I’ve only just recently come out as bisexual to my family and friends. It’s something I am still processing and trying to understand and I don’t like talking about it too much. I’m very very new to the LGBT community.”

Shannon, who played Barb on Stranger Things, responded to fans who accused her of “queerbaiting” after she wrote a tweet about Riverdale viewers who “ship” the relationship between Betty and Veronica.

So what does a friend like Veronica do? She spends some time with Ethel, which is cute, even if you’re asking why.

The New 'Wish Upon' Trailer Features Some Deadly Moments!

The New 'Wish Upon' Trailer Features Some Deadly Moments!

Joey King is reminding us to be careful what we wish for thanks to the trailer for her new movie Wish Upon!

The upcoming horror film also stars Sydney Park and Shannon Purser, among others, and things turn deadly when Joey‘s character starts making some wishes that really come true.

The film is about a 17-year-old girl named Clare (King) who is bullied in high school, embarrassed by her manic, hoarder father Jonathan (Ryan Phillippe) and ignored by her longtime crush. All that changes when her father comes home with an old music box whose inscription promises to grant its owner seven wishes.

While Clare is initially skeptical of this magic box, she can’t help but be seduced by its dark powers, and is thrilled as her life radically improves with each wish. Clare finally has the life she’s always wanted and everything seems perfect – until the people closest to her begin dying in violent and elaborate ways after each wish. Clare realizes that she must get rid of the box, but finds herself unable and unwilling to part with her new-and-improved life – leading her down a dark and dangerous path.

The movie is hitting theaters on July 14!
