Kevin Spacey Slammed for Coming Out Amid Sexual Assault Allegation

Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey is facing some serious backlash for coming out of the closet as an answer to allegations that he sexually assaulted a teenager years ago.

Star Trek: Discovery star Anthony Rapp, 46, recently told BuzzFeed that Spacey made unwanted sexual advances toward him when they were both starring in Broadway shows back in 1986. Rapp would’ve been 14, Spacey 26.

“He was trying to seduce me,” Rapp said. “I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.”

The incident has certainly lingered with Rapp all these years, too. “My stomach churns,” Rapp said about the alleged encounter. “I still to this day can’t wrap my head around so many aspects of it. It’s just deeply confusing to me.”

Spacey, 58, responded by posting a letter of apology on Twitter, in which he also revealed he’s gay.

For his part, Rapp has said he has no plans to elaborate on the ordeal, taking to Twitter to close the book on the matter.

And while that might seem like the end of the story, it may very well be just the beginning. With Hollywood reeling in the aftermath of the accusations against Harvey Weinstein, many celebrities called out Spacey for going with a “I’m gay” defense that should not distract everyone from the sobering reality of his potential offenses.
