There almost isn't a person in the world who watched "Stranger Things" and didn't fall in love with Barb. Shannon Purser's character was so relatable and she became an internet sensation overnight.
Since then, Purser has gone on to star in the teen TV drama "Riverdale" as Ethel Muggs, which has tangentially prompted her to make a huge announcement on Twitter: Purser has come out as bisexual.
She also took the opportunity to apologize for a "scandalous" tweet she sent out earlier in the week.
“I have never ever wanted to alienate anyone and my tweet was thoughtless,” the star penned. “I wasn’t referring to all the Beronica shippers, just the ones who had been particularly cruel to me personally. Either way, it wasn’t a wise or kind thing to say and I’m disappointed in myself.”
In a since-deleted tweet, Purser referenced "angry beronica stans" which sent Twitter into a tizzy.
The flagrant queer-baiting "Riverdale" perpetuated early in the season between the show's leads Betty and Veronica had rightfully upset many viewers, who quickly reminded Purser how harmful queer-baiting is.
