Charles Melton who took over from Ross Butler as Reggie in Riverdale, has issued an apology for the body-shaming tweets he wrote back in 2011/2012.

The 27 year old tells E! News in a statement that he is ashamed of his remarks:

"I'm truly sorry for making inconsiderate comments several years ago and apologize to anyone I hurt," Charles says. "What I posted and said was immature, offensive and inappropriate. I am ashamed of how I acted and there is no excuse for that behavior."

He concludes in the statement, "I'm striving to do better and will use this experience to grow, helping others to understand how these types of statements are completely unacceptable."
 
Melton has since put his Twitter on private.
