KJ Apa rose to fame with his portrayal as Archie Andrews in Riverdale. The show co-starring Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart and others gained unprecedented fame in no time. Owing to the same, the stars enjoy a massive fan base too. However, the latest update isn’t very happy!
Our Archie met through a really unfortunate accident. He got metal stuck in his eyes. His friends could be seen trying to help him in the video. The actor initially seemed calm as he tried to get it removed with the help of celebrity groomer, Jason Schneidman. Riverdale co-star Charles Keaton could be seen in the room too.
Things, however, got serious when Jason couldn’t remove the metal from KJ Apa’s eyeballs. So the actor took the cotton bud in his hand and stood in front of the mirror. One could notice that he was really struggling as things got intense. When the actor felt he wasn’t being able to fix it, once could notice him almost sobbing. He handed over Jason the bud again for the help. That’s when they noticed that the metal was out, but..
But KJ Apa maintained that something was still visible on his eyeballs. His friends told him that it was a hole created by the metal. Yes, you heard that right! According to them, there was temporary damage that would eventually fix. But The Last Summer actor panicked on hearing this and started crying like a baby.
That’s when the video goes off, but we can imagine how difficult it would have been for KJ. The actor himself shared the entire mishap on his Instagram account.
“a shard of metal got stuck in my eyeball,” he captioned the post.

We hope KJ Apa is all well now. His Riverdale fan base is really worried!
