There have been accusations of sexual assault made on social media against none other than Cole Sprouse but now, the Riverdale actor and his ex and co-star Lili Reinhart responded to the claims, denying them! Here’s what they had to say!
As you might have heard, the 27 year old actor was accused of sexual assault by unknown sources that took Twitter to share their stories.
However, Cole insists that they are nothing but ‘false accusations.’
Not only that but he was not the only one that an anonymous account made allegations about.
KJ Apa, Vanessa Morgan, and Lili Reinhart, all Riverdale stars, were accused as well.
Cole shared a statement about this, writing: ‘Earlier today myself and three other castmates were accused of sexual offense by anonymous Twitter accounts. I take these accusations really seriously and i will be working with the right team to get to the root of it. False accusations do great damage to victims of actual assault. Furthermore, I’d never seek to silence anyone. I encourage people look into the accusations themselves, as the events detailed are factually untrue.’
Lili Reinhart wrote in a separate post that she takes such issues very seriously, as well, which is why she thinks lying about sexual abuse and assault is nearly just as bad since it ‘invalidates’ the terrible experiences of actual victims who find the courage to speak up.
She mentioned that he could not even think of anything as ‘twisted’ as lying about something like that.
‘This kind of lie can ruin lives and careers – and I can call it a lie because the person who made the allegations already admitted that the stories were fabricated,’ the actress went on to say before noting that they are planning on taking legal action.
