Another day and another scandal in Hollywood. This time its Kevin Spacey and he is getting lit up from all sides. He took his apology to a “coming out” speech and it seems that people really aren’t fans of that. On Sunday, Buzzfeed published a story in which “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making a sexual advance towards him in 1986 when Rapp was a 14-year-old child actor and Spacey was 26.
Spacey has been under fire from just about everyone today. 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. Her statements came after former child actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of trying to seduce him when he was 14.
Rapp, best known for starring in “Rent,” said in an interview on Sunday that he was a teenager when Spacey made a sexual advance toward him and pushed him down on a bed. Comedian Wanda Sykes, who is a lesbian and outspoken member of the LGBT community, also sounded off on Spacey on Twitter early Monday saying that he can’t “choose’ to hide under the rainbow.”
Spacey also came out as gay in his apology after being accused by Rapp. Spacey’s response to Rapp read, “But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years.”
Unilad: Seth McFarlane isn’t afraid of anyone in Hollywood and when it comes to his Family Guy scripts, no one in a powerful position is safe from a deserved tongue-lashing. As allegations of sexual abuse of a minor have been published today against Kevin Spacey, old footage from season four of Family Guy – originally aired in May 2005 – has re-emerged, showing Stewie – the adult baby – hinting at paedophilia. You can watch Stewie’s now-uncomfortable joke in the short clip below:
