Actress Heather Lind accused former US President George H.W. Bush of sexual assault during a screening of one of her shows.

On Tuesday, Lind shared a post on her Instagram account which claimed that the former president touched her “from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side.”

According to a report on the Daily Mail the post has been removed.

In response to Lind’s claims, Bush apologized for the alleged episode that occurred four years ago.

A representative for the 93-year-old said: “President Bush would never — under any circumstance — intentionally cause anyone distress, and he most sincerely apologizes if his attempt at humor offended Ms. Lind.”
