Riverdale Creator Apologizes To Star Vanessa Morgan For Lack Of Diversity On The Show



Vanessa Morgan plays the role of Toni Topaz on CW’s hit show Riverdale. During the country’s current protests for justice and equality of the Black community, Morgan took to Twitter and stated various issues with the show including the fact that she is the only Black actress on the show. She also stated that she is paid the least. 

Last week, Riverdale creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, took to Instagram to address Morgan’s comments. “She’s right. We’re sorry and we make the same promise to you that we did to her. We will do better to honor her and the character she plays. As well as all of our actors and characters of color”, he wrote.
