Cole Sprouse and Riverdale co-stars react to Sexual Assault Allegations
Over the weekend, Riverdale stars were all faced with a lot. Their social media accounts blew up when a few random twitter accounts put sexual assault allegations on them. Riverdale actors, Cole Sprouse, KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, and Vanessa Morgan are the names these accounts use. Overnight, these accounts and their tweets found themselves blowing up with the news. However, the gang completely denies these allegations and says that they will seek legal action against these accounts. On Monday, he sends out a tweet from his account to these accounts with supposedly no identities.
Earlier today myself and three other cast mates were falsely accused of sexual offense by anonymous accounts on twitter. I take these accusations very seriously, and will be working with the right teams to get to the root of it.
The Riverdale star, Cole Sprouse goes on to say that these false narratives cause real damage.
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. 2

He also adds that this is a part of an elaborate attempt at trying to cancel his costars and himself.
This seems to be the latest claim in a series of incidents seeking to baselessly cancel my castmates and me.
Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse’s ex-girlfriend and Riverdale co-star, also speaks out.
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. 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.
As Lili Reinhart quotes her ex-boyfriend, Cole Sprouse’s tweets, Madelaine Petsch also speaks up in favor of her Riverdale friends.
As someone who has been sexually assaulted, I am deeply deeply disturbed that anyone thinks that it is okay to falsely accuse someone of sexual assault. This is why real assault allegations can sometimes not be taken seriously, you should be ashamed. This is disgusting. https://t.co/EX8mUIuFGJ

One of the girls who were putting allegations, says it wasn’t true.
All of the accounts that were giving out these allegations, were created literally this very month. However, one of the accounts later says that it wasn’t true. This account, in particular, posted allegations against Lili Reinhart.
However, she only says Vanessa and KJ Apa didn’t do anything. She did not take back any allegations against the other Riverdale stars including Cole Sprouse.
