Then, in September of that year, Rachel confessed that she only watched Snow White once as a child and that it had terrified her. She told Entertainment Weekly, “I was scared of the original version. I think I watched it once and never picked it up again. I’m being so serious.”

In the face of the backlash, many leaped to Rachel’s defense, with it being repeatedly pointed out that there are heaps of other stars who have said a lot worse about the projects they have starred in without facing any consequences.

Sharing screenshots of the comments to a Reddit forum, one person wrote, “Is Rachel Zegler alright? The amount of hate she received on her youtube newest video comment section is ridiculous, and she recently replied to hate messages. (I am worried about her),” and many expressed sympathy for the star as they echoed this sentiment.
