Riverdale’s Camila Mendes Drags ‘Fan’ Who Dissed Her Relationship With Charles Melton
It’s safe to say that our fave thing ever is when two TV characters start dating IRL, so imagine our delight when we found out that Riverdale stars Camila Mendes and Charles Melton were dating. The couple confirmed their relationship on Instagram on October 7th after Camila shared a photo of Charles kissing her forehead with the caption “mine.” Since then, they’ve been blessing our timelines with adorable lovey-dovey photos and videos and, TBQH, we couldn’t be happier.
Unfortunately, there are trolls who like to hate on happy couples, so when a “fan” came for Camila’s new relationship with Charles, she decided to give ’em a piece of her mind.
Here’s what happened: A fan account shared two side-by-side paparazzi photos of the actress on IG–one of her and current boyfriend Charles and another of her and ex-flame Victor Houston–alongside the caption, “Sorry but I have to post it. Cami looked happier with Victor.”
Camila caught wind of this post and decided to call out them out for getting their facts wrong. “I feel silly responding to this but I also feel the impulse to tell you that you’re wrong. I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life,” she wrote in the comments section. “It’s absurd to me that you call yourself a fan, yet your entire page is dedicated to disrespecting my relationship and my boyfriend.”
She goes on to say that the person who posted this also knows nothing about her relationship and definitely does not have any right to assume who makes/made her happier. Camila explained that the photos were clearly taken out of context and that, if people MUST know, the photo of her and Charles was taken on their way to shoot a self-tape. She said that her boo even took time out of his day to help her practice lines before her audition. The pic with Victor, on the other hand, was taken while they were walking toward a huge line of fans at a Comic-Con event earlier this year.
“See the difference?” Camila contined. “I hope you’re young, because that seems to be the only justification for this kind of immaturity.” See her whole comment below:

#Charmila fans immediately came to the couple’s defense, expressing their support and letting Camila know they have her back. She thanked them and replied to a Twitter user who wrote, “i will never understand why people think they have any say in your relationship when it’s YOUR relationship.”

She’s absolutely right BTW. Real fans would never have anything bad to say about the person she’s dating. Just for the record, Camila looks happier than she’s ever been.
