Purser's decision to come out follows an online tiff with Riverdale fans who accused the series of "queerbaiting" following a kiss between Betty and Veronica in the show's pilot that didn't go anywhere.
Purser called out the angry "Beronica" shippers, but has since deleted the tweet.
Ships are great, being horrible to people who don't ship your ship is not.
