Riverdale star Lili Reinhart hits out at magazine after her waist is airbrushed to make her thinner

The actress, 21, has accused publishing bosses of using photo wizardry to slim down her middle.

Lili took to Instagram to call out bosses at Cosmopolitan Philippines for editing the pictures that appeared on the cover of the February issue.

Both Lili, who plays Betty Cooper, posed for a shoot along with her co-star Camila, who stars as Veronica Lodge.

She claimed both their pictures were airbrushed to make their waists look thinner, and she was especially upset as it was  International Women's Day this week.

Lili wrote: "Over the last year, we've seen an unprecedented movement for women's rights, and one thing is clear: our time is now…

"But we still have a long way to go. Our fight is not over.

"And to see our bodies become so distorted in an editing process is the perfect example of the obstacles we have yet to overcome…

"Our battle has only just begun. We are f****** powerful, beautiful and strong. We aren't going to hide behind Photoshop to conform to beauty standards."

She goes on to accuse bosses of Cosmopolitan Philippines of trying to "fix" her and Camila by altering their pictures.

Lili explained: "That's why I am calling out @cosmopolitan_philippines.

"It's sad that you felt our bodies needed to be slimmed down.

"But Camila and I are f***ing beautiful. As is. And you can't 'fix' us.'

"So like every other day, women… go kick some ass. You are being heard. You are strong and sensational.

"And I would like to thank the OG [original] @cosmopolitan for keeping our waists as they are in their magazines.

"Also would like to encourage celebrities and other public figures to stop photoshopping their waists/noses/arms/legs in their photos.

"It's only encouraging an unrealistic body image. It's adding to the problem."
