Veronica and Betty have a message for Cosmopolitan Philippines: Do not photoshop their bodies. Riverdale star Lili Reinhart took to Instagram to call out the magazine for photoshopping her waist, highlighting the editing made by comparing it to the U.S version of the image.
Apparently her Riverdale co-star Camila Mendes’ waist also got the Photoshopped.
After posting the images, Reinhart also added a powerful message. She wrote,
Camila and I have worked incredibly hard to feel confident and comfortable in the bodies that we have. It’s an every day battle, sometimes. And to see our bodies become so distorted in an editing process is a perfect example of the obstacles we have yet to overcome.
“So we cannot stop fighting. Out battle has only just begun. We are fucking powerful, beautiful, and strong…we aren’t going to hide behind Photoshop to conform to beauty standards,” she wrote in a separate story.
“That’s why I’m calling out @Cosmopolitan_Philippines. It’s sad that you felt our bodies needed to be slimmed down. But Camila and I are fucking beautiful. As is. And you can’t ‘fix’ us,” Reinhart continued.
