OMG! Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart shared a terrifying story about someone pretending to be a cab driver at the airport. The person tried to convince her to get into an unmarked car but she ended up declining. She recounted the tale as a warning to fans to trust their instincts and to stay alert.
“PSA: I was just ushered to a car by someone posing to be an airport cab/Uber driver,” the 22-year old began her tweet on Sunday, June 2. “I got to his car and there were absolutely no signs that he was a professional service driver. So I did NOT get into the car.” She pleaded with followers, “Please pay attention and make smart decisions out there.”
The Hustlers actress was obviously shaken up because she posted another safety message to fans in a separate tweet. “Seriously … please be careful out there. You don’t have to be nice or worry about being rude. Trust your gut. It could save you,” the Ohio native wrote. She didn’t share where the encounter happened or if she ended up reporting the mysterious car.
People flooded the post with concerned comments. “Wow, that’s so scary. Glad you’re OK!” one person wrote. Someone else added, “Thank you for continuously spreading awareness.” Another user tweeted, “So happy you are OK! Goodness, we live in a scary world. Lots of love.”
The blonde beauty keeps it pretty candid with fans … sometimes a little too much. On January 2, in an effort to clap back at trolls, she posted a photo of herself flashing the middle finger to the camera. This obviously rubbed people the wrong way and sparked the actress to write an explanation the next day.
“I give too much of myself to those people. The last people on earth who deserve it,” she began a typed message on her Instagram Story which seemingly referred to her haters. “For letting them spark a reaction out of me. When I know all too well that the moment will pass. I’m still me. They’re still them.”
Lili acknowledged that feeding into haters never works out. “Judging my pictures and words, without actually seeing anything or knowing any part of me. The sticky spiderweb that they create seems to trap me every time. But I seem to be the one biting myself at the end.”
We’re glad the starlet is A-OK after that scary encounter.
