In the recent days, Harvey Weinstein's name has been in the news, and rightfully so, for many women have come forward to accuse him of sexually harassing or raping them. The film producer and former film studio director has been linked to several actresses, models, and associates who have worked with him, all of whom have accused him of sexual misconduct. His issue has brought several other issues to the spotlight, including abuse from men in power, regardless of industry. Several actresses have come forward on social media as well, including "Riverdale" star Lili Reinhart, who shared her personal experience being sexually harassed by a co-star.

Lili Reinhart writes her own story

"Riverdale" star Lili Reinhart took to Tumblr to share her personal experience where a "man in a position of power" over her used exactly that to try to "take advantage" of her. The 21-year old actress wrote that she was merely a teenager who had a crush on her co-star, who she described as "incredibly charming and charismatic." She also described him as "significantly older" than her, but that didn't stop them from flirting with each other. Things took a dark turn on their first date when he tried to "force himself on me" during their date. After she opposed his advances, he still insisted on taking her to his place, but Reinhart was indignant that she did not want to have any sexual relations with the man.

Actress was called names

Following the incident with "Riverdale" star Lili Reinhart's co-star, she tried to talk to her co-star about how he made her feel "violated" during their date.

She recounted how he became "angry at the situation and became defensive about it and his actions." According to Reinhart, he called her "a tease" and "the most manipulative woman he'd ever met."

At the time, Reinhart decided to keep quiet for two reasons, the first, sadly, was that she believed that no one would believe her. Secondly, she admitted that he had a bigger role in the project that she did, so he naturally had more power over production. She admitted that if she said something, she would be "looked at as dramatic and a diva, no one would want to work with me again."

Reinhart supports the women against Harvey Weinstein

Following the accusations against Harvey Weinstein, "Riverdale" star Lili Reinhart writes that she supports all the women who have ever been sexually harassed by the former film studio director. She wrote, "I stand with them. I believe them. I believe in standing up for yourself as a woman and coming forward about Sexual Harassment." Check out her blog to read her entire post.
