KIM Kardashian has been slammed by Riverdale star Lili Reinhart for “starving” herself to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s dress.
The young actress ripped the reality star as “toxic” and “stupid” following the shocking Met Gala stunt.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, 25-year-old Lili began: “To walk on the red carpet and do an interview where you say how starving you are…because you haven’t eaten carbs in the last month…to fit into a f**king dress?”
She continued: “So wrong. So f**ked on so many levels.”
“To openly admit you’re starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala.”
“When you know very well that millions of young men and women are looking up to you and listening to your every word.”
The star, who plays Betty Cooper on the teen show Riverdale, concluded in a third post before noting the “toxicity” of show business: “The ignorance is other-worldly and disgusting.
“Please stop supporting these stupid, harmful celebrities whose entire image revolves around their bodies.”
THE BIG SQUEEZE
The reaction from Lili comes after Kim revealed she lost 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into the legendary dress.
She borrowed the item from Ripleys Believe It Or Not! museum in Orlando, Florida.
Speaking with Vogue on the red carpet, the mom-of-four revealed: “I tried it on and it didn’t fit me. I said, ‘Give me three weeks.’
“I had to lose 16 pounds down today.”
She added: “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.”
HEART ON HER SLEEVE
Kim’s comments clearly affected Lili, who has spoken about her experiences with body dysmorphia before.
The young actress is an advocate for mental health and has raised awareness about eating disorders.
“Telling someone they don’t deserve to feel insecure because their body is ‘fine’ or ‘just like’ whomever … is wrong. That’s part of the problem,” she once wrote on Twitter, according to INSIDER.
Since then, many viewers have seemed to look up to the star for being open and vocal about celebrating different body types.
If you or someone you know is affected by any of the issues raised in this story, call or text the National Eating Disorders Association at 800-931-2237, or chat with volunteers online.
