In a now-deleted Instagram post, actress Heather Lind accused former President George H.W. Bush of sexually assaulting her from his wheelchair at an event for the show, “Turn.”

According to Fox News, Bush touched her twice and told her a dirty joke:

Lind wrote on Instagram Tuesday that Bush “sexually assaulted” her. She said he touched her “from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side,” told her a “dirty joke,” and then touched her again.

Lind claimed that Barbara Bush “rolled her eyes” at Bush, “as if to say ‘not again.’”

According to the post, which has since been deleted, a nearby security guard told Lind that she “shouldn’t have stood next to him for the photo.”

From the comments on a subsequent Instagram post, it looks like she deleted it after getting trashed for calling out the elder Bush.

A spokesman for the 41st president issued a statement saying that Bush “apologizes if his attempt at humor offended Ms. Lind.”:
