    I probably shouldn’t have said “worse”. However, Spacey’s behavior has been persistent for decades. I’ve heard that he as well participates in these “parties”. That he’s threatened physical harm to men (in the 90’s) who have tried to out him. That he has threatened to have people pulled from their work if they didn’t give up some ass and of course some were underage. That he has physically assaulted other individuals. Now, he merely pays people off. Gus Van Sant is rarely a name mentioned in these things. But he’s another one. Though who knows how extensive it is with him.

    Also, Singer identities as bi now (he changed up his identity when the last line of allegations came and when he decided to marry a woman to have a baby). And Spacey isn’t gay, honey. According to him he has merely “chosen to live as a gay man”.

    If they ain’t gay then I’m both blind and deaf. Those silly fuckers. Yeah they ain’t gay they just like to fuck men and being fucked by them. lol
    As for Van Sant, he used to do this in eighties and nineties. Not so much anymore. He’s too fucking old now. And a littlebit of a… has been? But that never stopped Toback. lol Schumacher was also quite famous when it came to casting couch. But the thing is both Spacey and Singer like them as young as possible (yuck). Tinsletown needs to be outed for what it is which is basically modern Sodom and Gomorrah.

    To be clear, what KS is being accused is called pedophilia and is far, far worse than an alleged sexual harassment on an adult woman.

    Also, note that Specey didn’t denied Rapp’s allegations, he even implied that more news could be on the way.

    If the pedophilia charges are accurate, then Spacey conflating that heinous crime with his sexual orientation (his “choice” to live as a gay man) will give ignorant, homophobic bigots ammunition to hurt so many more innocent people now. Disgusting and opportunistic on so many levels!

    Exactly. And as a long time supporter of LGBT rigths it makes me so fucking mad. He’s such a fucking disgrace. But he has always been this way. Smug as fuck.

    Of course the show is ending. It’s time anyway and these are days when it’s best to distance yourself from people with stories like these being printed about them. So what else was Netflix going to do?

    I’m waiting for a call from my mother explaining why being gay is bad and using this as an example.

    I was really sad that Spacey was nominated this year. He was probably sixth or seventh.

    Zero chance he gets another nom.

    And I hate to be that guy, but Spacey’s allegations are far worse and serious that Affleck’s were.

    Ranking levels of sexual abuses is pretty shitty in any context.

    Couldn’t agree more. 😐

    The first couple seasons of this show were genuinely amazing to me, but it just got worse and worse from that point on. As happy as I am the show will no longer be digging it own grave quality-wise except for one last year, I am deeply sickened and disgusted as to the reasons for its overdue conclusion. Not because the showrunners decided to be mature and intelligent enough to realize that they had run out of story ideas, but because of the gross and disturbing past of the star/producer. 🙁

    Also, I know a lot of people have already said this, but I am going to say it anyway: The Leftovers’ 3rd Season deserved to be nominated for the Emmy for Drama Series more than House of Cards atrocious 5th Season.

    I am extremely grateful to Anthony Rapp for coming out. If there was ever a safe time to come out about this sort of thing in Hollywood history, now is that time. Even then, the victim is still getting blamed in some cases. Poor Asia Argento had to leave her native country Italy because of all the hateful shit she was getting there!

    Nitpicking:

    – Netflix did not necessarily cancel House of Cards because of the situation. Their statement indicated that Netflix met with crew to ensure that they felt safe because Netflix was deeply troubled. It did not say that House of Cards was cancelled because Netflix was deeply troubled.

    – Spacey was not saying that being gay is a choice; he was saying that identifying semi-publicly as such is.

    That must be an awkward set (not that many of them did not know about this already).

    That’s still making the association to the world that sexual orientation is a “choice” that can be turned on and off like a water faucet. It’s giving ammunition to all kinds of homophobic bigots out there who liken homosexuality to pedophilia with no nuance at all in the discussion about how vile the comparison is. It’s hands down the worst “coming out” public declaration I’ve ever seen. And frankly, Netflix can say whatever it will to distance itself away from all of this. I would guess TPTB wanted at least seven seasons from its flagship series, but six is enough to end this particular story. Personally, I think the “House of Cards” cancellation news TODAY is an allegations deflection that Spacey used (having a monetary interest in the series as producer) to serve his PR purposes just like this outing did. It’s very “Frank Underwood”-ish of him to try to change the conversation to such a degree, and thankfully it’s not working. Twitter’s reading him for filth as we speak.

    Netflix should be firing Spacey. No way will I, nor countless other House of Cards devotees, tune into a show headlined by this monster.
