Riley takes a stand against bullying

Riley, who plays Mercedes on the hit American TV show, has partnered with beauty brand Secret Deodorant in support of their Mean Stinks programme.

The talented star will front a group aimed at giving teen girls courage, support and advice on how to deal with hurtful comments and behaviour from bullies and mean girls.

She says, “I know the challenges that young women face, mean behaviour being one of them, and I want to stand strong against bullying by encouraging women to be nice and elicit positive change.”

Riley will also step in front of the camera for a number of print adverts.
