Lili Reinhart is doing her best to educate people about body dysmorphia. In a series of tweets, the Riverdale star spoke out after social media critics who say she has no right to feel self-conscious about her appearance.

“Feeling really disheartened by the fact that so many people are saying ‘you’re skinny so shut up about embracing your body.’ As if my body dysmorphia is irrelevant because of how I look to some people. I’m either not curvy enough or not skinny enough to feel insecure,” she tweeted Wednesday.

The actress continued: “Mental illness gets worse when people say that you don’t have a right to feel the way you do. That’s where we are failing. Do not encourage this behavior. It is destructive. More destructive than you’ll ever realize. You may not understand someone’s insecurity — but respect it.”

Reinhart, 21, opened up about her body dysmorphia— a condition in which a person “can’t stop thinking about one or more perceived defects or flaws in your appearance, a flaw that, to others, is either minor or not observable”— in an April interview with Seventeen magazine, explaining it got triggered after she developed severe acne in the seventh grade.

Meanwhile, the young actress had to shut down pregnancy rumors just a few weeks ago after “unflattering” photographs popped up of her and boyfriend and Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse.

“My body is something that I will NEVER apologize for,” she wrote on Instagram. “My body will constantly go through change. And so will yours. And that’s fine. So let’s not put so much time and effort into caring about a stranger’s figure.”

Preach, girl! PREACH!
