Actress Jennie Garth took to her Instagram on Monday, April 1 to share a photo of herself with her longtime Beverly Hills, 90210 costar Tori Spelling but was quickly attacked by followers for being nearly unrecognizable.
“Working with my favorite partner in crime! Thank you@castrofashion @castrofashion_kids#israel We ❤️Israel @90210onfox@torispelling,” she captioned the photo of the two stars who are working together once again for the Fox’s upcoming reboot of the hit teen soap Beverly Hills, 90210.
Instead of focusing on the reunion however, followers commented on Garth’s looks and she didn’t hesitate to respond! “Oh Jennie! You are beautiful & don’t need all that Botox! Sadly you are unrecognizable here!” one user wrote. Garth then quipped: “thank you?”
Another wrote, “Omg! You seem so fake…” causing Garth to write, “nope, I’m human.”
“Omg what happened to your faces?” a third person wrote and the actress simply replied, “ha you’re amazing.” The follower quickly added, “@jenniegarth didn’t mean to offend u… i just can’t believe how fast time files…anyway all the best.”
This isn’t the only time recently that Garth decided to respond to critics after fans blasted her for not posting a social media tribute to her late Beverly Hills, 90210 costar Luke Perry.
“Hey everyone … I chose to post a pic of my girls today. Because they are my life. Because today is a day to celebrate all women,” she wrote in the comments section of a photo of her three daughters on March 8 (a.k.a International Women’s Day). “It took a lot for me to want to celebrate anything. I thought about it and I know that’s the way my dear friend would have wanted it.”
She added: “[Luke’s] kids were his life. And anyone who knew him knows that and knows he didn’t give a f*#k about social media. So please don’t assume or judge or make rude comments. That’s really uncool. Sincerely, Jennie.”
As previously reported, Fox announced in late February that the reboot of Beverly Hills, 90210 was officially in the works with original stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling all on board for the project. Of course, there was one big twist, with the description for the reboot revealing that the cast won’t be playing their iconic characters but rather “heightened versions of themselves.”
The official description for the reboot reads: “The core cast will all play heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama — with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships. Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot up and running. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast — whom the whole world watched grow up together — attempts to continue from where they left off?”
