The 19-year-old actor talked last week about struggling to reconcile her sexuality with her faith, currently sends a warm massage to her fans which can be treated as her coming out as bisexual. Purser, who now plays Ethel Muggs on another hit Netflix show, young adult drama Riverdale, posted a screenshot on Twitter of her coming out statement. She wrote that she has “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. I’m very very new to the LGBT community.” The decision to come out was sparked by conversations with fans online who accused Riverdale – which features close friends Betty and Veronica – of falsely implying the two characters would get together. They started shipping a couple too aggressively and this aggression touched Shannon. “I have never heard the term ‘queerbaiting’ in my life until today. That being said, I have never ever wanted to alienate anyone and my tweet was thoughtless. I wasn’t referring to all the beronica shippers, just the ones who had been particularly cruel to me personally. Either way, it wasn’t a wise or kind thing to say and I’m disappointed in myself, especially as a Christian who has always been taught to speak love to others. Thank you to all the people who kindly reached out to me and educated me about the reality your feelings about queerbaiting and I apologise to those who were hurt. Much love- Shannon.”
