Cole Sprouse is speaking out after being accused of sexual assault by an anonymous Twitter account. After a Twitter user claimed on Sunday that Sprouse allegedly assaulted her at a 2013 party, the 27-year-old actor denied the "false accusations."

According to multiple outlets, similar accusations were leveled at Sprouse's Riverdale co-stars Vanessa Morgan, Lili Reinhart, and KJ Apa on Sunday by other anonymous Twitter accounts. 

One account that made said accusations later tweeted in part "see how easy it is to lie and you guys will believe it?" according to a screenshot of the tweet. The account in question has since been suspended from the social media site.

"Earlier today myself and three other cast mates were falsely accused of sexual offense by anonymous accounts on twitter," Sprouse 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," he continued. "Furthermore, I would never seek to silence anybody. I encourage that people look into the accusations themselves, as the events detailed were factually untrue."

Sprouse concluded his Twitter thread by writing, "This seems to be the latest claim in a series of incidents seeking to baselessly cancel my cast mates and me."
