As was expected, Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sanó has denied the allegations that were made against him on Thursday. Sanó is being accused of sexual assault by a Minneapolis-area photographer of sexual assault.

Betsy Bissen made the allegations against Sanó on Thursday morning. She alleges that he sexually assaulted her in 2015 after an autograph session.

According to TMZ Sports, Sanó claims “it never happened.”

“I unequivocally deny the allegation made against me today — it never happened,” Sanó said. “I have the utmost respect for women, especially those working in professional sports, and I deeply sympathize with anyone who has experienced sexual harassment. There is no place for it in our society.”

Bissen is a photographer, who took photos for Twins Daily, who covers the team. She alleges that he grabbed her wrist and “tried to forcefully pull her through a door in an attempt to kiss her after an autograph session in 2015.”

Major League Baseball is looking into the allegations against Sanó. Bissen used the hashtag #MeToo in her post, which refers to the Me Too Movement.

The #MeToo Movement began in October 2017 to denounce sexual assault and harassment stemming from alleged sexual assault allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein. According to People, the hashtag has been used over 5000,000 times, mainly at alleged sexual assaults by celebrities.
