Many celebrities have also taken to social media to slam Spacey, and denounce the potential conflation of homosexuality and pedophilia.
"I am sorry to hear of Anthony Rapp's experience and subsequent suffering". According to published reports, the cancellation notification had already been planned a month ago and is not a response to the claims. "But as a calculator manipulation to deflect attention from the very serious accusation that he attempted to molest one". Rapp said he didn't fully comprehend what was happening at the time, and is grateful nothing worse happened.
The actress turned activist accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of raping her in 1997, but remained silent as part of a nondisclosure agreement that was part of a settlement with the disgraced Hollywood mogul.
Rapp said he managed to flee before the encounter progressed.
The announcement comes on the heels of a sexual abuse allegation against the show's star Kevin Spacey. Spacey responded by apologizing for his "inappropriate drunken behavior" and coming out as gay. And Anthony was able to squirm away.
So far, only major cast members and creatives have been alerted of the streaming service's decision!
Hours later, in a statement responding to the allegations, the Oscar-winner apologized for the behavior and came out as gay.
SHAPIRO: This was all in a two-paragraph statement on Twitter. Spacey, he recalled, "sort of stood in the doorway, kind of swaying".
Rose McGowan, a leading voice against sexual harassment in Hollywood, said of Spacey: "It's your turn to cry". And I think in the eyes of many LGBTQ people, those are not related things.
The final episodes of the TV series, starring Spacey and Robin Wright as ruthless political operators in the United States government, will air in 2018. How widespread do you think this is?
