“Twitter is actually the most toxic form of social media,” she wrote in a now-deleted tweet, according to Glamour. “People are a—— for the sake of being a——. Do you not understand karma? It’s fine if you don’t, you’ll understand when it bites your miserable a—.”
She also reportedly shared on Instagram: “Dear everyone on social media, Don’t put down people for the sake of putting them down. Don’t be a f—— ——hole. The world doesn’t need anymore of that s—.”
Reinhart’s words come just after Sprouse’s open letter to his fans, in which he told them he will not “tolerate” negative comments and has no intention of changing his role in the public eye regardless of their opinions.
“I tolerate a lot of rumors and slander from people online claiming to be my fans. Fans who feel entitled to my privacy precisely because I never indulge them,” Sprouse wrote on his Instagram Stories on Sunday, April 19, night. “But attacking my friends, baseless accusations, leaking my address and sending death threats are all qualities of insanity and fanaticism.”
“Choose humanity, stop being 🤡,” he continued.
Although the actor didn’t specify what referring to, rumors about his relationship with Reinhart made rounds on social media over the weekend, with some fans alleging he cheated on her with actress Kaia Gerber.
“When I first stepped into a public relationship this was one of the foreseeable consequences,” Sprouse wrote in a subsequent post on his Instagram Stories this week. “And while I truly never intended to indulge any part of my private life to the ravenous horde, it’s clear my restraint in updating them has allowed them to push their own agenda onto my habits and lifestyle.”
“So in conclusion — please eat my delectable plump a—,” he added, joking in conclusion, “(Making me post a g—damn white font insta story like a twice divorced mother of three.)”
Rumors of Sprouse and Reinhart dating began spreading in May 2017, and their relationship wasn’t confirmed until the 2018 Met Gala carpet – which they attended together.
