Less than 24 hours after Kevin Spacey announced to the world that he is a gay man in an attempt to deflect from underage sexual assault allegations, Netflix has announced that they are cancelling his show 'House of Cards' after its sixth season, which is currently in production.
This news comes after Spacey made the decision to come out of the closet in a statement apologizing to actor Anthony Rapp, who said in an interview that the actor attempted to sexually assault him in 1986, an incident Spacey says he does not remember.
Rapp was 14 at the time while Spacey was 26.
Media Rights Capital, who produces House of Cards, and Netflix released a joint statement on Monday saying they 'are deeply troubled by last night's news concerning Kevin Spacey,' who 'as previously scheduled' is not currently working on set.
'In response to last night's revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported,' said the two companies.
The show's creator Beau Willimon also weighed in, saying: 'Anthony Rapp's story is deeply troubling. During the time I worked with Kevin Spacey on House of Cards, I neither witnessed nor was aware of any inappropriate behavior on set or off.'
He went on to state: 'That said, I take reports of such behavior seriously and this is no exception. I feel for Mr. Rapp and I support his courage.'
There is also a chance that Spacey's character was never meant to be in the sixth season, with his character's health an issue throughout the five previous seasons of the show and the actor currently in the middle of shooting a Gore Vidal bio pic.
This is just crazy!!! Is there anyone in Hollywood whose hands aren't dirty??? I'm seeing stories on Twitter that it's been a known thing that Spacey is kind of a pedophile. Remember how Seth McFarlane had that joke about Weinstein that turned out to be very true... Well check this out...
I think at this point we just need Seth to out every pedo in Hollywood ASAP! As far as House of Cards being cancelled, it sucks. But to be honest, why don't they just continue with Claire. I;m not trying to spoil anything but the way the show is set up, it seems like ti could easily go that way. Anyways, it's gonna be weird watching this 6th and final season now... If you even do it.
