Netflix Cancels ‘House Of Cards’ Following Kevin Spacey Allegations

The actor was accused of sexual harassment yesterday

Yesterday, Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual harassment towards Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp.

Rapp, who was 14 at the time, alleges that Spacey, aged 26 at the time, made a sexual pass at him while they were both appearing in shows on Broadway in 1986. 

Following the accusations, Spacey responded on Twitter saying he did not remember the alleged incident but attributed it to “deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour”. 

Spacey also addressed his sexuality by coming out as gay, which many have branded as an attempt to deflect from the serious sexual harassment allegations made against him.
