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.
We are even more glad that Veronica and Ethel’s cute friendship survived it all and was actually one of the most important storylines there.
In the episode, after Ethel (Shannon Purser) reads a dark poem in class, Veronica (Camila Mendes) gets to the bottom of what inspired her words and she finds out that Ethel’s home life isn’t so great at the moment.
So what does a friend like Veronica do? She spends some time with Ethel, which is cute, even if you’re asking why.
Ethel reveals to Veronica as well as Betty, Kevin, and Mrs. Lodge about her father’s financial troubles, her parents’ fights, and how they have to sell their house.
