One of the shittiest things about our social media/celebrity culture is that we think that we know everything about everything, and can interpret peoples words however we see fit. But the truth is that we don’t always know what people are talking about and shit is taken out of context over and over.
Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse’s relationship is always the subject of speculation. Are they or aren’t they together? Who knows. But it comes down to it being none of our business.
Recently Reinhart did an interview and her comments were taken out of context and left fans with many questions.
“This has been the first time in four years where I’ve been able to like stop and process the immense life changes that I’ve gone through,” Lili said in an interview with Refinery29.
She continued by saying she felt like a “black tunnel [that] was never going to end…I couldn’t see the light. I was like, I feel like I’m dying. It was fucking rough, and there’s no other way through it than just through it. I’ve seen a lot of people when it comes to heartache and grief and breakups, and they try to get that void filled with sex, with coke, with food, with drinking, [but] the void is still there. I took the road less traveled and just dealt with my shit. I had to face my own pain head-on.”
And the world seemed to take that as confirmation that she had confirmed her breakup with Cole Sprouse.
However Reinhart took to Twitter to talk about what they were really about.
“Quotes taken from my most recent interview are not about a ‘breakup.’ They are about the depression I’ve felt over these last few months. Tired of people taking my words out of context and piecing together their own story for clickbait,” Lili posted. “I would never speak so candidly about something as personal as a breakup. That’s incredibly private. I was addressing my depression.” she tweeted.
Guys, we don’t know everything and we need to respect people more than guessing on their lives.
We owe them and ourselves better.
