Lili Reinhart Calls Out “Harmful” Celebrities Like Kim Kardashian Who Admit to Severely Dieting for Events

​​​​​​“To openly admit to starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala,” Reinhart added. “When you know very well that millions of young men and women are looking up to you and listening to your every word. The ignorance is other-worldly and disgusting.”

Actor Lili Reinhart took to her Instagram story the day after the Met Gala to seemingly slam Kim Kardashian for sharing her crash diet techniques during an interview with Vogue.

Kardashian, who donned the infamous crystal-studded dress worn by Marilyn Monroe when she sang “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy in 1962, spoke about intensely restricting her food consumption, claiming she lost 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into the dress.

“I tried it on and it didn’t fit me,” Kardashian said to a reporter at the star-studded gala. I said, ‘Give me three weeks.’ I had to lose 16 lbs.” She went on to say, “It was such a challenge. It was like a [movie] role. I was determined to fit [into] it. I haven’t had carbs or sugar in about three weeks. We’re having a pizza and donut party back at the hotel [after the Met Gala].”

“To walk on a red carpet and do an interview where you say how starving you are…because you haven’t eaten carbs in the last month…all to fit in a f***ing dress?” the “Riverdale” actress wrote on her Instagram story. “So wrong. So f***ed on 100s of levels.”
“To openly admit to starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala,” Reinhart added. “When you know very well that millions of young men and women are looking up to you and listening to your every word. The ignorance is other-worldly and disgusting.”

She concluded, “Please stop supporting these stupid, harmful celebrities whose entire image revolves around their bodies. I am not generally an angry person but I swear to God, the toxicity of this industry really gets to me sometimes and I have to do my little Instagram-Story rants to release my rage.”

Reinhart is a staunch advocate for body acceptance and positivity, and has spoken candidly about her struggle with her body image.
