Elijah Daniel Gets Into Twitter Feud With The Cast of Riverdale

Controversial rapper and YouTuber Elijah Daniel gave his unsolicited opinion of the show ‘Riverdale’ and ignited a Twitter war with the entire cast.

CW’s Riverdale series averages over 1.5+ million viewers per episode but Elijah Daniel is not one of them.  He took to Twitter to let the world know that he was not a fan of the teen drama.

Every Elijah fans knows he can be a bit controversial but it’s part of his charm.  If you hadn’t noticed riling people up is very on brand for the YouTuber, but the cast of Riverdale clearly wasn’t aware.

KJ Apa, who plays Archie Andrews on the show, was the first to respond to Elijah on the platform.

Ouch!  Before Elijah could reply to KJ, another member of the cast came forward to defend the popular show.  Ashleigh Murray, better known as Josie, took the “I don’t know her” Mariah Carey approach when responding to Elijah.  But things turned ugly after he addressed her.

She implies Elijah’s use of AAVE in his response to her was kinda sorta racist.

Elijah called Asleigh’s claims ridiculous as they continued to go back and forth.

Lili Reinhart, aka Betty Cooper, staying out of the drama seemed like the best decision.  But Lili took it a step further by announcing she would be taking a break from social media.  Many assumed her digital detox was because of the back and forth with Elijah Daniel but she clarified that it had nothing to do with him and everything to do with the thousands of hate comments from miserable social media users.
