‘Riverdale’ Creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa Apologizes To Vanessa Morgan

After Vanessa Morgan, who plays ‘Toni Topaz’ in the television series ‘Riverdale’, raised her voice about pay inequity and said that being black in the media sector is tough, the creator of the series, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa responded to her on June 5.

Aguirre-Sacasa posted a statement through his Instagram page and apologized to Vanessa Morgan for all the inequalities she has to face as a part of the TV show.

He used the following statements to express his sorrow on this case:

“We hear Vanessa. We love Vanessa. She’s right. We’re sorry and we make the same promise to you that we did to her. We will do better to honor her and the character she plays. As well as all of our actors and characters of color.”

And he added:

Change is happening and will continue to happen. Riverdale will get bigger, not smaller. Riverdale will be part of the movement, not outside it. All of the Riverdale writers made a donation to @BLMLA, but we know where the work must happen for us. In the writers’ room.”
