Kevin Spacey's 'Nazi' and 'abusive' father in spotlight amid sex scandal

Kevin Spacey's 'Nazi' and 'abusive' father in spotlight amid sex scandal

Original story: One day after Kevin Spacey was accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old actor when he himself was 26, Netflix announced that "House of Cards", the political drama in which Spacey stars as Frank Underwood, will end after its sixth season.

Spacey, a two-time Academy Award winning actor, did not corroborate Rapp's account - but he did issue a qualified apology in response to the allegations leveled against him.

Hours later, in a statement responding to the allegations, the Oscar-winner apologized for the behavior and came out as gay.

"Media Rights Capital and Netflix are deeply troubled by last night's news concerning Kevin Spacey", said the companies in a joint statement published by Deadline on Monday. Admitting that he had "had relationships with both men and women", Spacey wrote, "I have loved and had romantic relationships with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man". At the same time, he said, "I could never imagine [that] anyone else I know would do something like that to a 14-year-old boy".

All good things come to an end, even House of Cards.

Rose McGowan added: "Bye bye, Spacey goodbye, it's your turn to cry, that's why we've gotta say goodbye".

Rapp has yet to address Spacey's comments, but on Sunday night he tweeted: "Everything I wanted to say about my experience is in that (BuzzFeed) article, and I have no further comment about it at this time".

In light of all of these sexual harassment and assault allegations, is there anything that you think networks and production companies will start doing, perhaps through background checks?

Specifically, a drunken Spacey allegedly "picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance", according to a report that appeared in BuzzFeed.

The New York Post speculated that the next "tipping point" would be the stars who still deny knowing anything, such as Matt Damon and George Clooney, who have pulled out of scheduled public appearances to promote their struggling movie Suburbicon. "It's hard to recall a time when the cultural landscape has shifted so dramatically".
