Lili on her story (June 3) — I’m very proud of her right now❤️

A post shared by Lili&Cole (@liliandcoledaily) on

The actor had spent three years in a high-profile romantic relationship with her Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse till their breakup last month.

On the teen romance show, the pair plays a common couple: Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones.

The pair has a quite massive fandom of social media called "bugheads."

Lili has been using her social media platform to share her support of the Black Lives Matter movement and expressed a desire to intensify viewpoints for the black community.

Lili today posted on Twitter, "I want to open up my Instagram to any influencer from the black community who wants to say a few words or share their thoughts— I will do an Instagram live with them and them can have my platform to speak about this issue.

"Any requests? Who should I reach out to?"

Besides that, her ex Sprouse was detained on Sunday at a protest for Black Lives Matter in Los Angeles.

Cole wrote on Instagram:  "Peace, riots, looting, are an absolutely legitimate form of protest. the media is by nature only going to show the most sensational, which only proves a long standing racist agenda.

"I was detained when standing in solidarity, as were many of the final vanguard within Santa Monica. We were given the option to leave, and were informed that if we did not retreat, we would be arrested.

"This is ABSOLUTELY not a narrative about me, and I hope the media doesn’t make it such. This is, and will be, a time about standing ground near others as a situation escalates, providing educated support, demonstrating and doing the right thing.

“This is precisely the time to contemplate what it means to stand as an ally. I hope others in my position do as well."

A group of peaceful protesters, myself included, were arrested yesterday in Santa Monica. So before the voracious horde of media sensationalism decides to somehow turn it about me, there’s a clear need to speak about the circumstances: Black Lives Matter. Peace, riots, looting, are an absolutely legitimate form of protest. the media is by nature only going to show the most sensational, which only proves a long standing racist agenda. I was detained when standing in solidarity, as were many of the final vanguard within Santa Monica. We were given the option to leave, and were informed that if we did not retreat, we would be arrested. When many did turn to leave, we found another line of police officers blocking our route, at which point, they started zip tying us. It needs to be stated that as a straight white man, and a public figure, the institutional consequences of my detainment are nothing in comparison to others within the movement. This is ABSOLUTELY not a narrative about me, and I hope the media doesn’t make it such. This is, and will be, a time about standing ground near others as a situation escalates, providing educated support, demonstrating and doing the right thing. This is precisely the time to contemplate what it means to stand as an ally. I hope others in my position do as well. I noticed that there are cameras that roll within the police cruisers during the entirety of our detainment, hope it helps. I’ll speak no more on the subject, as I’m (1) not well versed enough to do so, (2) not the subject of the movement, and (3) uninterested in drawing attention away from the leaders of the #BLM movement. I will be, again, posting the link in my story to a comprehensive document for donations and support.
