Kevin Spacey Sexual Misconduct Scandal: Everything We Know So Far

Kevin Spacey Sexual Misconduct Scandal: Everything We Know So Far

The house of cards has fallen on Kevin Spacey.

The Verge is reporting that Netflix has fired Spacey from House of Cards, effective immediately. CNN reported that all of the people described Spacey's behavior as predatory.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, actor Anthony Rapp said he attended a party at Spacey's NY apartment in 1986, when he was 14.

In the less than a week since Kevin Spacey was first accused of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old Anthony Rapp back in 1986, numerous men have come forward to disclose their own encounters with the actor, House of Cards has been canceled and his agent and publicist have both distanced themselves from the two-time Oscar victor. Spacey has also been dropped by his publicist and talent agency, CAA as allegations continue emerge.

"A former camera assistant said that while he was never harassed by Spacey, the actor's inappropriate behaviour often took place in public".

News that the production of the show's sixth season was put on a halt on Tuesday. Killing off Frank may breath new life into the show.




In the USA, eight crew members who work on the Netflix series House of Cards have also told reporters that Spacey created a toxic work environment through a pattern of sexual harassment.

"We will continue to work with [Media Rights Capital, the production house behind the show] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show", it said.

MRC said it was "deeply troubled" by the latest allegations, had implemented a complaint hotline and offered crisis counsellors and legal advisors to the crew, and would "thoroughly investigate" all claims formally brought to its attention. The actor wrote a lengthy post Sunday in response to Rapp's revealing Buzzfeed interview, which was published earlier that evening. "I witnessed him groping men many times in all sorts of different situations", one told The Guardian newspaper.

The Old Vic theater, where Spacey served as artistic director between 2004 and 2015, distanced itself from the actor.

It previously announced setting up an email address where "anyone" with concerns about "inappropriate behavior" by Spacey can come forward.
