“But I’m not going to sit in my room and cry day in and day out until the internet has deemed it appropriate for me to do otherwise. And if you knew my dad you would know he wouldnt want me to. So you shouldn’t either.” Luke’s family and friends have taken to social media to express their grief and share some of their fondest memories of the star. Riverdale stars Camila Mendes and KJ Apa shared their grief. Luke’s friend and Beverly Hills 90210 co-star Jason Priestley also shared his grief with the world.
