Cameroon worldwide Bong claimed Rodriguez abused him during West Brom's 2-0 win at The Hawthorns in January.
Rodriguez would face a minimum five-match ban if the case against him is proven but the 28-year-old former Burnley and Southampton player believes he should have already been cleared. "I 100 percent deny the false allegation and will take the correct legal advice to prove my innocence".
It is alleged he used racially abusive terms to insult Brighton defender Gaetan Bong. Bong, a former Cameroon global, alerted the referee moments later.
Hughton only said: "There was something said to Gaeten Bong by Jay Rodriguez which has been reported to the referee. Rodriguez words are unforgivable for the man I am!"
Rodriguez was seen pinching his nose and saying something to Brighton defender Gaetan Bong, who is black, after an on-field confrontation during the January 13 game at The Hawthorns.
