"Riverdale" star Cole Sprouse is publicly denying allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in 2013.
An anonymous Twitter account using the name Victoria posted a series of tweets Sunday, accusing the 27-year-old actor of sexually assaulting her at an NYU party.
The former Disney Channel star took to Twitter the same day to deny the allegations, calling them "baseless" and "factually untrue."
"I take these accusations very seriously, and will be working with the right teams to get to the root of it," he wrote. "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."
The user alleged that Sprouse pushed her onto the bed and fondled her, despite her telling him several times to stop.
"I want to tell about my sexual abuse by cole sprouse," the tweets read. "It was at a party in 2013 when cole was at nyu. I was invited to one of his parties by a mutual friend, he came up during the party and started flirting with me and obviously I was flattered, we talked for quite a while. We then started making out and he invited me to his room."
The user said Sprouse "became aggressive and pushed me against the bed."
Sprouse's "Riverdale" co-star Lili Reinhart responded to the claims leveled against Sprouse and other cast members on Twitter, writing that "it was proven that this account was created specifically to create false stories about me and my cast."
Co-star Madelaine Petsch, who plays Cheryl Blossom in the CW television series, defended Sprouse on Sunday, calling the accusations "disgusting."
"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," she wrote. "This is why real assault allegations can sometimes not be taken seriously, you should be ashamed. This is disgusting."
The allegations against Sprouse come amid recent accusations of assault against celebrities, including Justin Bieber, "Baby Driver" actor Ansel Elgort and Netflix comedian Chris D'Elia. Bieber, Elgort and D'Elia all denied the sexual misconduct allegations, and Bieber retweeted Sprouse's post on Twitter.
