Tired of us also being used as sidekick non dimensional characters to our white leads. Or only used in the ads for diversity but not actually in the show.” She also revealed that on “Riverdale,” she’s “the only black series regular but also paid the least.” The show’s creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, responded, “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.”
