KJ Apa may be totally adored by the masses, but he too would get his fair share of online abuse.
Speaking to Stuff.co.nz, he opened up about how bad it can get.
"It gets gnarly at times, but I think you can't pay too much attention to the social media stuff," he began.
"It can become dangerous if you're reading too much, because there's always bad stuff. There's good stuff but there's always going to be bad stuff. You do get gutted."
But, the person he turned to for support will make you go 'awwww' because it's none other than his Riverdale dad, Luke Perry.
"He said, 'Y'know, this kind of thing happens all the time, it's nothing to do with you,'" he said. "But I went to him and I spoke to him and he helped me. He's the biggest legend, and obviously he went through the whole thing on a way bigger scale than even Riverdale, you know Beverly Hills 90210 was massive, so I think he is the best guy to talk to, and I'm really close with him."
#CAN'T. Best father/son duo ever.
