Riverdale’s KJ Apa Hilariously Recreates Cole Sprouse’s Topless Photo Of Lili Reinhart
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? The stars of Riverdale never pass up an opportunity to troll each other online, so when Cole Sprouse shared a topless photo and sweet message to Lili Reinhart on her 22nd birthday last week, we were just waiting for one their castmates to make a joke about the love-dovey post, or do exactly what KJ Apa and Casey Cott did…
The former Disney Channel actor’s original post showed a topless Lili looking stunning as always as she gazed at her reflection in a mirror with her arms crossed over her chest. It was steamy AF and exactly the kind of PDA we’ve been waiting for from the notoriously private couple. But, wait, the caption was even better: “Both the birthday and the gift. My little muse, happy birthday my love.”
KJ, who jumps at every opportunity to poke fun at his Riverdale BFFs, just couldn’t just leave this precious moment alone, so he teamed up with Casey to recreate the epic shot.
On Friday, September 14, Casey shared almost the exact same birthday tribute on Instagram – but with KJ in the photo instead. In the image, the actor, who plays Archie Andrews on the hit CW series, is seated on a chair and facing a mirror as Casey takes the photo with his phone.
KJ even added a single heart emoji, just as Lili did, in the comments section to prove his troll game is strong. The rest of the Riverdale cast, Lili and Cole included, definitely thought the post was funny and immediately shared their reactions. Cole replied, “bReAK tHe InTeRnET” along with a heart emoji, Camila Mendes commented a pair of heart-eyes emojis, and Skeet Ulrich wrote “Hahahahaha!!!” Meanwhile, Mark Consuelos wishes he “would have thought about this first” (it’s not too late, Mark!) but it was Lili that stole the show with her comment, “Show me those nips.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Cole and KJ have trolled each other on social media. Over the summer, KJ epically roasted Cole with a hilarious meme that showed fans what each of them really looked like at age 17. Then, earlier this month, KJ started up a rumor that Cole and Lili broke up after she wasn’t with her boyfriend on Labor Day. Also, how can we forget when the entire cast collectively poked fun at KJ’s big head on the new Riverdale season three poster?
But, the question now remains: Will Cole and Lili get KJ and Casey back? We certainly hope so! Not only does KJ have a few snaps on IG that are begging to be recreated and ridiculed, but we’d love to see IRL Jughead and Betty team up to get revenge on their co-stars.
