Fellow actor Anthony Rapp claimed that when he was 14, a 26 year old Spacey made sexual advances towards him.
Netflix claims the decision on the future of House Of Cards had been made months ago, but had only been made public today.
Spacey responded to the allegations on twitter yesterday and also took the opportunity to come out as a gay man.
His timing has been slammed by a number of LGBTIQ advocates including GLAAD.
Coming out stories should not be used to deflect from allegations of sexual assault.— Sarah Kate Ellis (@sarahkateellis) October 30, 2017
This isn't a coming out story about Spacey, but a story of survivorship by Anthony Rapp & those who speak out about unwanted sexual advances— Sarah Kate Ellis (@sarahkateellis) October 30, 2017
The media and public should not gloss over that.— Sarah Kate Ellis (@sarahkateellis) October 30, 2017
Spacey is yet to respond further.
