The politically correct police have forced another celebrity for apologize for insinuating something that might be possibly taken as racially charged, but almost certainly wasn't. The perpetrator is Lili Reinhart, star actress of "Riverdale."

What did Reinhart do?

The 21-year-old Reinhart made an innocent joke about a picture she found on the internet and said it reminded her of her own soul, for its blackness.

What was the reaction?

Although the actress's meaning was clearly about her having a "black soul" and had nothing to do with race, many people took it in the worst way possible.

They called it racially insensitive because it resembled a white person in "blackface."

How did Reinhart respond?

Reinhart apologized and deleted the offending tweet, despite having many more supporters on social media than detractors.

"I did not mean for my tweet to come off that way," she said. "I can see how it was interpreted as being insensitive, completely. I saw the pic on a Halloween Instagram and didn't think it would be interpreted as being racially insensitive."

"I apologize," she added. "Never meant any harm. I can see how it could've been misinterpreted."
