Cole Sprouse Says Lili Reinhart Split Led To ‘Riverdale’ Fans Sending ‘Nasty’ Death Threats

Cole Sprouse is getting candid about the rough side of “Riverdale” fame. During an interview with the show’s cast for Vulture, Cole shared how he endured intense backlash from fans over his real-life split with fellow co-star Lili Reinhart. He shared, “I get a lot of stuff sent to my house or my loved ones’ houses. Death threats, really nasty, honestly criminal stuff. And I do think it’s because at least four of us at this table have dated our co-workers,” referring to him and Lili, as well as fellow co-stars Camila Mendes and Charles Melton, who previously were a couple offscreen. He said of the intense fan reactions, “Is that just a consequence of an incredible love? Or is that what fanaticism looks like? Perhaps because those lines were blurred to our audience, it’s hard to break those things up when life moves on.”
