Riverdale star cast including Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes & others speak against false sexual misconduct allegations

After sexual misconduct allegations against some of the Riverdale star cast including Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Vanessa Morgan and KJ Apa were made, their castmates came in support for them.
 
Cole, who plays Jughead in the show, tweeted, "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. 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. This seems to be the latest claim in a series of incidents seeking to baselessly cancel my cast mates and me."
 
The tweet was shared by Lili stating similar things about false sexual allegations and how she's going to take strict actions against this. She wrote, "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. 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."
 
Soon after Cole's tweet, Vanessa Morgan too retweeted his tweet on her wall. Furthermore, their castmates Camila Mendes and Madelaine Petsch criticised such claims.
