Fans Are Ripping Apart KJ Apa For His Shocking Look On The TIFF 2018 Red Carpet In Toronto

Riverdale fans hated his all-white ensemble that had him looking like a marshmallow with spiky hair.

Toronto has been flooded with celebrities following the first weekend of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, more commonly known as TIFF. The TIFF red carpet is something that Torontonians always look forward to and this year was no exception.

Tons of celebrities made their way to Toronto for the first weekend of the festival. There were ranging stars from A-listers like Julie Roberts, Lady Gaga, and Bradley Cooper, to those new in the Hollywood scene. Not only that, the films that premiere during TIFF can really skyrocket some movies to success, like "La La Land" in 2017.

One man who has never walked the TIFF red carpet was none other than the studly star KJ APA, who plays Archie Andrews on the hit CW and Netflix series "Riverdale." Apa was celebrating the world premiere of his new movie, "The Hate U Give" and wore an all-white ensemble that has fans questioning his outfit choices.

The 21-year old actor spends most of his time out west shooting "Riverdale," so his TIFF trip to Toronto was actually only the second time he had visited the city. He's previously visited for the MMVA's in 2017. 

Fan's didn't hold back when it came to telling the star what they thought about Apa's fashion choices. Whether they hated the turtleneck, the hair, or just the fact that he decided to wear ALL WHITE literally one weekend after Labour Day, fans truly went to town.

Some fans compared him to Tilda Swinton and even Zoolander. I mean, we can kind of see the resemblance. But it's all in good fun, Apa definitely knew that his unique look would get a ton of buzz. Good or bad, his fans can't stop taking about him!

Others were quick to defend Apa's choices, going as far as saying that his look was amazing. Some people even though that it was a really dapper choice to head to his world premiere.

KJ Apa in a turtleneck?!!! I’m dead

September 9, 2018

As a huge fan of "Riverdale" myself, I have to say that this look isn't my favourite on Apa, who usually looks so suave on any red carpet. I think his spiky hair made him look a little wild, plus the all-white look is a little too Michelin Man for me. 

Whether you hate the white look or absolutely love it, just know that KJ absolutely loved his look, and even captioned his Instagram picture "The boys are now rocking turtle necks." That's all that matters after all!
