‘Stranger Things’ and ‘Riverdale’ Star Shannon Purser Reveals She’s Bisexual
Purser posted a note to Twitter Tuesday night coming out to the public. She said she already came out to friends and family and didn’t want to talk much about it, but wanted to share to make a point and to apologize for previous remarks about fans.
After Purser tweeted her Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse mocking “Beronica shippers” (fans who want to see a romantic relationship between characters Betty and Veronica), fans accused her of “queerbaiting.”
Ships are great, being horrible to people who don’t ship your ship is not.

She responded with a heartfelt message.
“I don’t normally do this, but I figure now is just as good a time as any to get personal. 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,” she wrote in part.
