Netflix cuts ties with actor Kevin Spacey amid sexual assault allegations

Both statements were released just days after production for the hit Netflix show was halted indefinitely in light of actor Anthony Rapp's allegations in a Buzzfeed interview that Spacey made a sexual advance toward him when he was just 14.

House of Cards's production is now suspended to allow writers to rework the show's final season and write out Spacey's character, according to what sources have told The Hollywood Reporter.

A young production assistant who won't reveal his name told CNN Spacey exhibited unwanted sexual behavior toward him during those first years of filming. One employee alleged he was sexually assaulted by Spacey. "I was in a state of shock", the anonymous staffer said. "He was a man in a very powerful position on the show and I was someone very low on the totem pole and on the food chain there".

The assistant helped the actor take his belongings to his trailer, and claims Spacey then cornered him and made inappropriate contact after blocking the exit. "I witnessed him groping men many times in all sort of different situations". That must be good news for the cast and crew, who can get a safer working environment, free of a predator, and continue to have a steady income. He claimed that "everybody saw", and that crew members often commented on Spacey's behaviour, but didn't complain out of fear of losing their jobs. She said Spacey would initiate play fighting and that he would "say hello, greet them, shake their hand and pull their hand down to his crotch and touch their crotch".

The streaming service has also reportedly scrapped the Gore Vidal biopic "Gore", which stars and is produced by Spacey. Spacey never denied those allegations, instead pointing the finger at his alcohol use at the time and using the opportunity to come out as gay, a decision that earned him scorn from critics wondering if he was trying to deflect outrage away from himself in the process. He said that he once saw a grip bend over to pick something up and Spacey remarked that he had a "nice ass".

As a response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn't remember Rapp's alleged incident and apologising "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".
