RUSH: Well, folks, the scandal that has enveloped Hollywood took another turn this week. Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp, now 46, accused fellow actor Kevin Spacey of sexually harassing him in 1986 when he was 14, when Rapp was 14.
Spacey immediately apologized for what he said would have been “deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.” And then Spacey set off another firestorm when he used the apology to declare he chooses to live life as a gay man. Oh, it’s a choice now?
Netflix then announced that House of Cards – starring Spacey – will be suspended indefinitely. A spokeswoman says the decision to kill the show was made months ago, but they were still going to go ahead with this season, season six, until yesterday. In a joint statement with the producers Netflix said they were deeply troubled by the report. Of Kevin Spacey’s deeply inappropriate drunken behavior all those years ago before he announced that he is choosing to live life as a gay man.
Meanwhile, on another Hollywood front – and back – four additional women say they were abused by the now-infamous Harvey Weinstein. They describe groping, forcing them to watch him doing things with himself, and another serious allegation of rape.
One accuser says that she spoke to Harvey’s Hollywood friends about what had happened. They told her it was just a “rite of passage” for actresses in Hollywood. So far, 80 women have come forward with stories of Harvey Weinstein.
It turns out Hollywood’s House of Cards is really a House of Horrors. These perverts all dumping on Donald Trump during the campaign, and now look at who the real perverts are.
