Kevin Spacey Accused Of Racism

Kevin Spacey has not just been accused of sexual assault, but now racism. The actor whose career has taken a negative turn since he was exposed was accused of racism by the head of a security company that worked on the set of the Netflix’s “House of Cards”.

Earl Blue, the head of VIP Protective Service and Navy veteran, told Daily Mail that Spacey would refuse to acknowledge the black team members and made racist remarks. He also said Spacey was overheard by some of his employees telling a member of his personal security team, “I don’t want n****rs watching my trailer,” referring to the Netflix show, House of Cards, in which he played the lead role, Frank Underwood.

Blue, 51, cited “confidentiality” as the reason why he waited four years to come forward, but told the paper it came “to the point where people are being harmed, enough is enough.” Blue said his company’s contract was not renewed despite receiving no complaints and being told by representatives of the company that hired them that they were “really pleased.” He told the paper that he later learned through a production manager that Spacey said in a conference call that he “did not want n*****s on his set anymore.”

However, another source told Daily Mail that there were break-ins under the security company, VIP’s watch—including in Spacey’s trailer — so the contract was given to another firm.

Blue denied the account and said he wasn’t given a reason for why his contract was terminated. Since losing the Netflix gig, Blue said his company has struggled to find work.

Iain Paterson, who was a producer on the show, told the paper that the work of VIP Protective Service’s was “unsatisfactory,” but would not comment further on the accusations made by Blue.

A former employee of the VIP Protective Service told the Mail that he has “no particular recollection” of Spacey eliciting racist behavior. Although, he added that Spacey was a “real a**hole” who would get “temperamental.”

 

House Of Cards Returns Without Kevin Spacey

Netflix has announced that one of its hit show “House of Cards” will be returning for its sixth and final season without star Kevin Spacey.

Netflix’s content chief Ted Sarandos made the announcement, saying Robin Wright will be the season’s lead. Production for the season had been suspended indefinitely after Spacey was accused of sexual harassment by actor Anthony Rapp.

Recall that others also came forward with allegations of harassment at the hands of Spacey, including 8 current and former “House of Cards” employees. Netflix had in November said they would no longer be working with Spacey, after being pressured to cancel the show. “We are excited to bring closure to fans,” Sarandos said.

 

Kevin Spacey Accused Of Rape, Agents Cut Ties

Kevin Spacey is sure not having it easy with the sexual harassment charges being thrown at him by young men in the movie industry. His career might as well go down the drain with the new development.

 

A man has accused the House Of Cards star of trying to rape him when he was 15, amid mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault. In an interview, the man, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said he took part in an acting class taught by Spacey when he was 12.

 

Two years later, they began what the man described as a “sexual relationship”. Then when he was 15, Spacey tried to rape him at his flat, the man said, after which he ended the relationship.

 

“I would call him a paedophile and a sexual predator,” he said.

 

Eight people who worked on the political drama House of Cards meanwhile told CNN that the actor engaged in sexual harassment on set, typically targeting young men, while one of the eight said Spacey sexually assaulted him.

 

Admits the sexual assault charges, Spacey’s talent agency has dropped him. According to the source, Creative Artists Agency had parted ways with the Oscar winner.

 

Staci Wolfe, a spokeswoman for Spacey, wasn’t available for comment. Deadline, which reported CAA’s decision earlier, said that Wolfe also cut ties with the actor. Spacey created a toxic environment for workers on the television show, CNN reported, citing interviews with eight people who work on the show or used to.

 

 

A former production assistant told the network that Spacey sexually assaulted him during one of the early seasons. All eight people spoke on condition of anonymity over fear of professional repercussions for speaking out, CNN said Thursday. One production assistant claimed that he was driving Spacey to the set when the actor put his hands down the assistant’s trousers.

 

“I was in a state of shock,” he told CNN.

 

“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.”

 

Another crew member claims Spacey routinely touched him without consent.

 

“He would put his hands on me in weird ways,” the crew member said.

 

“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.”

 

 

Netflix, which carries House of Cards, and Media Rights Capital, the producer, suspended production of the show earlier this week after another actor Anthony Rapp, not part of the cast, alleged he was accosted in 1985 at age 14 by Spacey. Spacey issued an apology for that incident and was said to be seeking treatment.

 

 

As part of his apology, Spacey announced he was gay but angered many in the gay community and beyond who saw his announcement as an effort to divert attention from the accusation by Rapp. Rapp has said on his Twitter feed that he would have no further comment. Spacey’s representatives said Wednesday that the embattled actor was seeking unspecified treatment.

 

 

That announcement followed additional harassment allegations against him this week by Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who worked in the London theatre where Spacey was artistic director from 2004-2015, and US filmmaker Tony Montana. Montana, who first shared his story with Radar Online, recently told the Los Angeles Times that he was by himself in a booth at a now-defunct dive bar in West Hollywood making “paper edits” on a documentary, got up to get a drink and found himself talking to the actor at the bar. Spacey, he said, was making fun of a film he had just been doing press for, United States of Leland. Montana said he had never met Spacey before.

 

 

“He was slurring his words, saying, ‘Lee-land, lay-land, wanna get laid.’ He was joking and stuff,” Montana said.

“When someone who’s drunk and is joking, you let your guard down.”

Plus, he said, it was Spacey. “Kevin Spacey’s fine,” he thought.

 

 

Then, Montana said: “He got close to me and put his arm around me and moved in, so now I can feel his breath, and smell it, and then he grabbed me, hard” on the genitals and told the filmmaker: “This designates ownership”. Montana said he pulled Spacey’s thumb backward to get him to let go, then paid for the drink and went to the men’s room. Moments later, he said, Spacey walked in on him and practically fell onto him. “It was a urinal. So I’m trying to get away from a guy who’s grabbed me like that, and then I’m going into a urinal to expose myself, and he comes in? I get a double whammy?” Montana said, adding that he pushed Spacey backward out the bathroom door, where one of the actor’s friends steered him away.

 

 

Montana said he had post-traumatic stress symptoms that lingered after his own alleged incident – including when he would see Spacey in the media or hear the actor’s name brought up for consideration at a business meeting – feelings that had welled up again as he talked about it publicly. Montana said that by coming forward with his story, he was just “trying to work through” what happened to him.

 

 

“I’m not going after Kevin for money. I don’t wish him any ill will,” Montana said.

“It’s just … he did something 14 years ago that’s affecting not only him but all the people who work on that show.”

 

More Trouble For Kevin Spacey As More Sexual Harassment Allegations Evolve

Oscar winning actor Kevin Spacey is facing fresh allegations after two men came forward accusing the actor of sexual assault. The first victim is Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who acted in several plays at the theatre. He wrote on Facebook that he encountered Spacey at the bar of London’s Old Vic Theatre, where Spacey was an artistic director from 2004-15, and that the actor tried to grope him against his will.

 

 

“It was more common for this guy, when he was in the bar of this theater, grabbing whoever caught his attention. I didn’t stand for it, but I know some people who were afraid to stop it,” he wrote. BBC reports that the second victim is identified as John and he works in the Entertainment Industry.

 

 

Speaking to the Victoria Derbyshire programme, the man said when he slept on the star’s sofa he woke up fully clothed with Spacey lying on him, in his underwear. John said Spacey again became “affectionate” the second night he was in the city.

 

 

“I burst into tears because I couldn’t articulate anymore what was happening to me. I was scared… To his credit, he backed off and we went to sleep.” Reflecting on his experience, John says: “It seems he was grooming me. For me, I never let on that that’s what I was interested in. I never discussed it, nor did I want it.

 

 

“He was either very stupid or he was predatory – or maybe a little of both. I was uncomfortable at best, traumatised at worst, emotionally. John says he didn’t tell the authorities or his parents at the time, although he has since told friends.

 

 

These new allegations follow accusation made by Anthony Rapp, who claims Spacey made sexual advances at him when he was 14 years old and Tony Montana, a documentary filmmaker also accused him of groping him at a bar.

In a statement on Monday, Media Rights Capital and Netflix, who produce House of Cards, responded to the allegations against Spacey, saying they were “deeply troubled” by the news.

 

“In response to last night’s revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported. As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time,” the statement said.

 

 

But a Netflix spokesperson confirmed to Guardian Australia that the decision to end the show was made months earlier, and not in response to the allegations about Spacey surfacing

 

House of Cards which began in 2013, was nominated for 33 Emmy awards and eight Golden Globe awards, with Spacey and Wright winning best actor and actress Golden Globes for their performances.

Rapp said that this was an attempt for Spacey to “seduce” him. “I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually,” he adds.

 

“My stomach churns,” said Rapp. “I still to this day can’t wrap my head around so many aspects of it. It’s just deeply confusing to me.”

 

Reacting to the allegation, Spacey took to Twitter this morning to apologise to Anthony Rapp, saying that it would have been over 30 years ago but he doesn’t remember the alleged encounter.
