Cole Sprouse, 27-year-old, has decided not to maintain his silence about a s.e.x.u.a.l a.s.s.a.u.l.t claim posted to Twitter.


“Earlier today myself and three other castmates were falsely accused of s.e.x.u.a.l offense by anonymous accounts on twitter,” Cole started in the first of his three tweets, also referencing allegations made by other Twitter accounts about his “Riverdale” co-stars Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa and Vanessa Morgan.

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

‘Jughead’ actor wrote, “Furthermore, I would never seek to silence anybody. I encourage that people look into the accusations themselves, as the events detailed were factually untrue,” Cole wrote in his tweet.

“This seems to be the latest claim in a series of incidents seeking to baselessly cancel my castmates and me,” as in his conclusion.

Lili Reinhart, 23-year-old, who played as Betty Cooper in the series and has reportedly her split from a romantic relationship with Cole, has spoken out on behalf of Cole and herself against the allegations.


“I have always taken s.e.x.u.a.l a.s.s.a.u.l.t allegations seriously. But it was proven that this account was created specifically to create false stories about me and my cast,” the actress wrote after Cole tweeted.

“I can’t think of something more twisted than lying about s.e.x.u.a.l a.s.s.a.u.l.t. It invalidates the men and women who are…brave enough to come forward with the truth. 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,” Lili added.

“We are looking into taking legal action. This kind of sick behavior only harms true survivors. This was incredibly triggering for me and scary because I’ve always supported survivors and believed them,” the actress posted.

Vanessa Morgan, 28-year-old who played Veronica, also re-tweeted three tweets of Cole shortly after.
