Riverdale actor Cole Sprouse got dragged in a verbal brawl along with his friend this Thursday. Besides, paparazzi caught Sprouse trying to hold back his male friend from a fight in the wee hours of Thursday.
Meanwhile, video footage of the scene shows the former Disney star holding back his friend, at the same time, trying to calm him at the same time. The brawl took place outside a restaurant in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, and managed to capture a lot of attention.
The verbal brawl soon turned into a physical fight.
Moreover, Sprouse’s friend accused the other man of making an inappropriate, racist remark. The tensions between the two groups keep increasing, with none of them wanting to back down.
Furthermore, Cole’s friend directly hits out the man on the street and calls him a racist. The videos and pictures show Sprouse pulling the two men off each other. At one point, the stranger even went on and physically pushed the actor’s friend to ‘deny’ the racist claims.
Meanwhile, the situation managed to garner the attention of passerby’s and onlookers as they flocked around the scene. The video footage then shows a blonde woman asking Cole and his group of friends to leave from outside the restaurant.
While asking the audience of the fight to leave the scene, she tells Cole and his friends that they need to go. As of now, the actor or his team has not publicly commented on the fight or the racist claims.
Cole’s recent trip to Jail after BLM protest
On another note, the Sprouse twin has been enjoying this time chilling with his friends on more than one occasion. Since the shooting for Riverdale has paused because of coronavirus, Cole has a lot of time on his hands.
Earlier last month, he participated in a Black Lives Matter protest and revealed that they even got arrested by the cops. The actor took to his social media handle and revealed that the cops arrested them for protesting peacefully.

A group of peaceful protesters, myself included, were arrested yesterday in Santa Monica. So before the voracious horde of media sensationalism decides to somehow turn it about me, there’s a clear need to speak about the circumstances: Black Lives Matter. Peace, riots, looting, are an absolutely legitimate form of protest. the media is by nature only going to show the most sensational, which only proves a long standing racist agenda. I was detained when standing in solidarity, as were many of the final vanguard within Santa Monica. We were given the option to leave, and were informed that if we did not retreat, we would be arrested. When many did turn to leave, we found another line of police officers blocking our route, at which point, they started zip tying us. It needs to be stated that as a straight white man, and a public figure, the institutional consequences of my detainment are nothing in comparison to others within the movement. This is ABSOLUTELY not a narrative about me, and I hope the media doesn’t make it such. This is, and will be, a time about standing ground near others as a situation escalates, providing educated support, demonstrating and doing the right thing. This is precisely the time to contemplate what it means to stand as an ally. I hope others in my position do as well. I noticed that there are cameras that roll within the police cruisers during the entirety of our detainment, hope it helps. I’ll speak no more on the subject, as I’m (1) not well versed enough to do so, (2) not the subject of the movement, and (3) uninterested in drawing attention away from the leaders of the #BLM movement. I will be, again, posting the link in my story to a comprehensive document for donations and support.
