Buttigieg, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, made the comments not long after Biden released a video in response to the allegations, pledging to be more mindful of women's personal space.
"Social norms have begun to change, they've shifted, and the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it," Biden said in the video. “I hear what they're saying. I understand it. I´ll be much more mindful. That's my responsibility, and I'll measure it. ”He did not directly apologize to his accusers in the video, and maintained that his actions were innocent, stating that he acted the same with men and women.
Four women have come forward in recent days that the former vice president's public touching made them deeply uncomfortable.
Biden, 76, is widely expected to enter the 2020 presidential race soon.
