Well, a promo clip of Cole's interview on Call Her Daddy with Alex Cooper which is now viral with 24 million views — showed Cole smoking as he answered a question about his breakup with Riverdale costar Lili Reinhart.

"Ooh, it was really hard. I know we did quite a bit of damage to each other," Cole responded. When Alex asked why the relationship ended, Cole took a looong puff of his cig and pondered. Like????

People were like, "Who is he trying to be?!?!?!?!"
