House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey will end after season 6.
As allegations of unwanted sexual advances in 1986 by Kevin Spacey against a then teenage Anthony Rapp have emerged, Netflix today has decided to pull the plug on House of Cards after the upcoming sixth season next year.
Late Sunday, Rapp claimed that then 26-year old Spacey drunkenly put the then teen on a bed to “seduce” him. “I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually,” Rapp said last night of the 1986 incident.
An apologetic Spacey then issued a statement on social media saying he “did not remember the encounter” but added he was “horrified” by what Rapp described. “If I did behave, then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior,” Spacey said.
Spacey went on to say that he had “choose now to live as a gay man,” to backlash. As folks believe he decided to reveal this information to deflect from what he had done.
