'Riverdale' star Camila Mendes claps back at a "fan" who suggested that she was "happier" with her ex than with Charles Melton
Don't mess with Veronica Lodge aka don't mess with Camila Mendes.
Fans often take to the social media handles of celebrities to comment on their personal life in the general belief that the star in question will likely not see it. But what happens when they do? As for Camila Mendes, she snapped at a fan who had taken all the effort to make a split collage of the Riverdale star with her current boyfriend Charles Melton, who is also her co-star alongside her ex, Victor Houston.
The post caption of the side-by-side-image suggested that Mendes looked "happier" with her ex. "Sorry but I have to post it. Cami looked happier with Victor," read the Instagram post. Mendes came across this post and did not hold back from correcting the fan on how wrong the entire premise of the image was even though she admitted that she felt "silly" responding to it.
"I feel silly responding to this but I also feel the impulse to tell you that you're wrong," Mendes wrote. "I'm happier than I've ever been in my life.
"It's absurd to me that you call yourself a fan yet, your entire page is dedicated to disrespecting my relationship and my boyfriend, both of which you clearly know nothing about. Charles and I were on our way to shoot a self tape, which he helped me with all day," she clarified.
"Literally stopped everything he was doing to help me tape the perfect audition. I was running the lines in my head without even knowing there was a pap taking photos of us. Victor and I were at Comic Con, walking toward a huge line of fans knowing there were cameras pointed at us," the 24-year-old put on the contrast.
"See the difference? I hope you're young, because that seems to be the only justification for this kind of immaturity," she concluded.
Mendes and Victor dated on the down-low briefly before she started dating her co-star Charles. She made the news official with a sweet Instagram post of her and Charles snuggling and the caption, "mine".

The "fan" deleted the Instagram account since, so now we're pretty sure that fans will think twice before posting anything amiss about Mendes online. She's the IRL Veronica Lodge. We concur.
