Shannon Purser (A.K.A. Barb From 'Stranger Things') Comes Out As Bisexual

Stranger Things and Riverdale star Shannon Purser has come out as bisexual.

The actress, who is most well known as Stranger Things' Barb tweeted Tuesday:

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.

 

Welcome to the family, Shannon!
