Kevin Spacey was recently accused by actor Anthony Rapp of having trying to ‘seduce’ him over 30-years ago when Rapp was just 14-years-old.
In a recent statement made via Twitter, Spacey states that he does not remember the incident with Rapp in question, however if it is true, he offers his sincerest apologies. In addition to the apology statement, Spacey also comes out to the world as a gay man.
Rapp told Buzzfeed News that in 1986, Spacey, a fellow Broadway actor at the time, invited Rapp to his apartment for a party. Later in the evening, Spacey, then 26, allegedly “picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance,” according to the report.
Rapp said he pushed Spacey off of him, went to a bathroom and closed the door, thinking: “What is happening?” He told Spacey he had to go home, to which Spacey allegedly asked if Rapp was “sure” he wanted to do that.
Rosie O’Donnell has come out swinging against fellow actor Kevin Spacey, likening him to disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein and tweeting that “we all knew” about the “House of Cards” star’s alleged behavior.
