Anthony Rapp, known for his roles in Star Trek: Discovery and Rent, accused Kevin Spacey of sexual assault when he was 14. Spacey allegedly invited Rapp to a party at this apartment in 1986, with Rapp claiming that Spacey, then 26, “picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance.”
Spacey responded on Monday, saying that he had no memory of the allegations and apologizing for "what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior."
Netflix also responded by halting production of the sixth season of the highly successful House of Cards indefinitely. Spacey had played President of the United States Frank Underwood in the fictional series.
