Kevin Spacey's acting career may come to a close very soon.
Earlier this week, Kevin Spacey tweeted his apology to actor Anthony Rapp after the Star Trek: Discovery star revealed Kevin sexually assaulted him when he was 14-years-old.
His statement, that was a screenshot of a note, said he honestly does "not remember the encounter" and this allegation has pushed him to "address other things about my life." At the end of the statement, Kevin announced that many of those close to him know that he has chosen to "live as a gay man" adding, "I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behavior.”
Since then, the hit Netflix show House of Cards, that sees Kevin as a lead player, announced that it will be cancelled after its current season sixth production, amid the allegations.
Today (November 3rd) the former production assistant of the show, as well as eight other employees, open up in detail on the "toxic" work environment that they were victims to while being in Kevin's presence. Talking with CNN anonymously, for fear of professional repercussions, the group describes Kevin's behaviour as "predatory" adding he would touch male workers nonconsensually and make crude comments.
The production assistant tells the publication of a time he had to bring clothes to Kevin's trailer, saying that when they were both inside Kevin cornered him and touched him inappropriately. "I told him, 'I don't think I'm ok with this, I don't think I'm comfortable with this,'" where Kevin apparently became "visibly flustered" and fled the scene.
"I have no doubt that this type of predatory behavior was routine for him and that my experience was one of many and that Kevin had few if any qualms about exploiting his status and position," he said. "It was a toxic environment for young men who had to interact with him at all in the crew, cast, background actors."
Another crew member says Kevin would put his hands on him in a "weird" way. "He would come in and massage my shoulders from behind or put his hands around me or touch my stomach sometimes in weird ways that in normal everyday conversation would not be appropriate."
