Lili Reinhart has absolutely ZERO time for “starving celebrities.”
Like many people on social media, Lili was watching and commenting as celebrities flooded the Met Gala red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Her “Riverdale” co-stars Cami Mendes, Madelaine Petsch and her ex-boyfriend, Cole Sprouse all walked the coveted carpet.
Lili Reinhart Missed This Year’s Met Gala
Lili attended the Met Ball in 2018, 2019 and 2021; however, she was absent from this year’s gala.
Like millions of others, Lili got a big whiff of Kim Kardashian’s iconic 1962 Marilyn Monroe gown and heard the lengths she went to in order to fit in it.
The Blast previously reported that the SKIMs creator admitted to losing nearly 20 pounds to fit into the dress.
Kim wore a sauna suit twice a day, ate tomatoes and cut out all carbohydrates and sugars for three weeks in order to lose 16 pounds.
Kim Boasted About Losing 16lbs To Fit Into Marilyn’s Dress
Lili took to her Instagram Story following the Monday’s fashionable event. She did not name any celebrities by name, but the ‘Kardashians’ star was the only one talking about her drastic weight loss on the red carpet.
Lili Goes OFF About ‘Ignorant’ Starving Celebs!
She wrote, “To walk on a red carpet and do an interview where you say how starving you are… because you haven’t eaten carbs in the last month…all to fit in a f–king dress? So wrong. So f**ked on 100s of levels.”
Lili stated those kinds of actions were ignorant and ‘disgusting.’

“To openly admit to starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala. When you know very well that millions of young men and women are looking up to you and listening to your every word,” she continued. “The ignorance is other-worldly disgusting.”
Kim mentioned that her drastic weight-loss regimen didn’t involve “starving” herself, but we will let you decide.
Unfortunately, Lili got some backlash following her IG story and took to Twitter to explain what she meant by her Met Gala rant.
On Tuesday, May 3, the actress tweeted, “*sigh* I do not say the things that I say because I want to be relevant or get attention. I speak up because I don’t see enough people with large platforms calling out toxic behavior in our industry. Some people will never understand where I’m coming from and that’s okay.”

On Tuesday, we reported that Kim’s desire to wear Marilyn’s gown was rejected by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum.
TMZ reports the museum in which the dress is housed initially denied Kim access to the dress.
Kim Was Denied By Ripley’s At First
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum met with the reality TV star back in March for a first fitting.
Neither Kim nor Ripley’s liked the way the 60-year-old dress fit on her voluptuous figure.

Ripley’s made the decision to NOT lend the dress out to Kim unless she could make the dress fit like a glove… and that she did.
The mother-of-four admitted that she cried when she didn’t fit in the dress during the first try-on.
She Didn’t Fit The Dress Initially
Kim went to extreme measures to ensure she would be wearing Marylin’s dress on the night of the Met Gala.
“The Kardashians” star really put in the work at the gym.
While on the Met Gala red carpet, Kim told her good friend La La Anthony, who was hosting Vogue’s livestream, the insane lengths she went to in order to fit in the dress.

“I had this idea to put it on and to try it on, and they came with armed guards and gloves. I tried it on and it didn’t fit me, and so I looked at them and said give me like three weeks,” she dished. “I had to lose 16lbs, down today, to be able to fit this. It was such a challenge, it was like a role, I was determined to fit it.”
Kim revealed that she wore a sauna suit twice a day, ate tomatoes and cut out carbohydrates and sugars for three weeks.
Kim explained how she was able to lose the weight saying, “I would wear a sauna suit twice a day, run on the treadmill, completely cut out all sugar and all carbs, and just eat the cleanest veggies and protein. I didn’t starve myself, but I was so strict.”
The ‘KUWTK’ star often documented her early morning sauna suit sprints in her home gym.
Twitter absolutely LOST it over Kim’s admission. She was instantly slammed for promoting unrealistic body standards.
