RiverdaleWriter WriterRAS karterhol BrianEPaterson cmaroon TessaLWilliams listen to her & do better WriterRAS RiverdaleWriter TessaLWilliams BrianEPaterson karterhol there’s so many news articles y’all better pay attention & do better in your writers room So y’all down to address this? BrianEPaterson WriterRAS RiverdaleWriter karterhol

Yet she stays on the show though? She should leave if this is really an issue. All the Kevin Hart movies!!! Will Smith! Haley Berry! Just to name 3 highly rated stars with mega movies! Blackish! Tv high ratings! I don’t think her statement is justified That show blows anyways I think it's safe to say she won't be on Riverdale next season? But also I can see people being frustrated but NOT EVERYTHING is about color. Just bcs her character is not one of the main ones doesn't mean it's bcs of the color and also she agreed to play that role.

Ummmm I see MANY African-amercian shows.... SERIOUSLY!!! This is what starts so much drama on these media sites. Did you forget they have blackish, insecure, empire, blackleaf, snowfall, Chi, real housewives of Atlanta, brownish, meet the browns and all the Tyler perry episodes! RiverdaleWriter WriterRAS BrianEPaterson karterhol TessaLWilliams ArianaJackson

Hate how little screen time she was given. One of the most talented in the cast and deserved more. Glad she not holding back the truth no more 👏❤ It's obvious how bad the show treats her beccaa_R13 I'm still out here, my male colleague who only does half of the job I do and getting paid double the salary I get

Weyy Memmo_Rojas WriterRAS RiverdaleWriter BrianEPaterson karterhol WriterRAS RiverdaleWriter speak up WriterRAS RiverdaleWriter RiverdaleWriter WriterRAS BrianEPaterson karterhol The show sucks now just quit AS SHE SHOULD ! I LOVE YOU VanessaMorgan ! y’all still up? RiverdaleWriter WriterRAS BrianEPaterson karterhol

😔 RiverdaleWriter, BrianEPaterson, WriterRAS, karterhol, TessaLWilliams, ArianaJackson, Janine_Schoeny, _arasmella RiverdaleWriter, BrianEPaterson, WriterRAS, karterhol, TessaLWilliams, ArianaJackson, Janine_Schoeny, _arasmella BrianEPaterson WriterRAS karterhol If she asks for a raise now, I'm sure they'll be very generous. Too bad about Black owned small businesses though. Hollywood doesn't want to help them.

TheCW does this with all of their shows. Wow that blows for her 😭 man it blows Give me a break 🙄 Speak! She has a point, but in light of the actual life and death matters going on, is this the time to focus on you? Ma non ha mai espresso tali parole🙈 She's right, her character is a prime example. But the CW is notorious for portraying POC/LGBTQ/marginalized characters as tokens so it should surprise no one.

But has no issue cashing the paychecks monthly. ,,,,,, Wasn't she the lead on my babysitter's a vampire? Jessy_Robert oh Jesus Shame Riverdale I like this show too Don’t take the part if you don’t want it. GTFOH. So her best friend let her sit up there and be clowned like that? Could never be one of mine.

facts because her character has never had a backstory or any true storyline of her own. And don’t get me started on the wigs they put her in Idk about this. Scandal & how to get away with murder are very good shows with amazing female lead Id smash I never heard of this show or movie but I’m proud of her for speaking her mind.

Then start saying no Good on her for speaking out!❤️❤️❤️but WHO ACTUALLY WATCHES RIVERDALE how is this show still getting new seasons?😂 Lol se vas the star in that vampire series (Disney) WriterRAS how y’all handled Josie and the Pussycats is inexcusable. Do you know how many opportunities you guys had to give them actual storylines but instead they were used as background music and then were written off.

Toni had so much potential but the writers gave her zero screen time, no storyline. There’s so much wrong with Riverdale and I’m glad a cast member has spoken out about it; all the PoCs are mostly extras or side characters + if you’re not a pretty skinny boy/girl you’re f-d! So now is the time to bring up her pay? Ok.... people r dying... u r fine in your “poverty” princess

Have you read the comics ever? Cause there were 0 black people in it. You being on the show is the studio being 'woke'. Should u get paid more? Sure. Will they ever pay you more? No. Unless you do a Josie & Pussycats spin off series. this is disgusting, we are with you VanessaMorgan riverdale is so racist. they totally forgot about chuck, the pussycats, got rid of josie, made the lodges a mafia family, keep forgetting about fangs and sweet pea, and toni's only purpose is being cheryl's girlfriend BUT she and reggie were supposed to be main characters smfh

GIRL OMG E! NEWS GOT INVOLVED WriterRAS you are FINISHED Here we go again. this is shameful! KellyRipa & MarkConsuelos have to quarantine in the Caribbean honey. she deserves more 🖤 But your not a main character........

'Riverdale' star Vanessa Morgan says she's the show's 'least paid' regularVanessa Morgan is speaking out about her experience on the CW drama. mama get out, ur talented u know u deserve better. riverdale has gone downhill, leave!!!! And the best regular?! SHES SHIT FOR A START. AND NOON GIVES A CRAP ABOUT WHAT SOME NOBODY GETS PAID ON A NETFLIX SHOW. DONT LIKE IT.... GO WORK SOMEWHERE ELSE.
