Cole Sprouse has denied accusations of sexual assault made against him and some of his fellow Riverdale cast members.

The actor spoke out on Twitter over the weekend after the allegations were shared on social media.

“Earlier today myself and three other cast mates were falsely accused of sexual offence by anonymous accounts on Twitter,” he wrote.

“I take these accusations very seriously, and will be working with the right teams to get to the root of it.


“False accusations do tremendous damage to victims of actual assault. Furthermore, I would never seek to silence anybody. I encourage that people look into the accusations themselves, as the events detailed were factually untrue.

“This seems to be the latest claim in a series of incidents seeking to baselessly cancel my cast mates and me.”

On Sunday, a Twitter account alleged that Sprouse had become “aggressive” and forced himself on someone he had invited back to his room after a 2013 party.

Sprouse’s Riverdale co-star Lili Reinhart shared his statement on Sunday, adding: ”I have always taken sexual assault allegations seriously. But it was proven that this account was created specifically to create false stories about me and my cast.

“I can’t think of something more twisted than lying about sexual assault. It invalidates the men and women who are brave enough to come forward with the truth.”

She added: ”We are looking into taking legal action. This kind of sick behaviour only harms true survivors. This was incredibly triggering for me and scary because I’ve always supported survivors and believed them.

“I hope and pray that this does not discourage real survivors from speaking out about their experiences.”
