Kevin Spacey was accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old actor back in 1986.
Netflix has officially pulled the plug on one of it’s most popular series House of Cards after allegations came falling on it’s leading actor Kevin Spacey.
“As allegations of unwanted sexual advances in 1986 by Kevin Spacey against then-14-year-old Anthony Rapp have emerged, Netflix today decided to pull the plug on the Spacey-starring House of Cards after the upcoming sixth season next year,” read the streaming giant’s official statement.
Actor Anthony Rapp came out last week and accused the Oscar-winning actor of trying to “seduce” him when he was only 14-years-old.
“I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually,” Rapp said of the 1986 incident when then 26-year-old Spacey and him were both on Broadway in a revival of Long Day’s Journey Into Night and Precious Sons, respectively.
Spacey issued a statement on social media saying he “did not remember the encounter” but added he was “horrified” by what Rapp described. “If I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior,” Spacey said.
