Just as Frank Underwood's Washington tenure is coming to an end, so does the career of the man who plays him, Kevin Spacey.

In the aftermath of today's allegations of unwanted sexual advances in 1986 by Kevin Spacey against a then-teenage Anthony Rapp, Netflix has decided to pull the plug on House of Cards after the upcoming sixth season next year, Deadline reported.

Citing sources, Deadline says that the decision was made today, just over 12-hours after the Rapp first made public his allegations on October 29 of what happened at a party at Spacey’s NYC apartment back in the mid-1980s, with key cast and creatives were alerted this morning. Furthermore, Netflix’s film Gore which stars Spacey about author Gore Vidal, i said to also be on the chopping block. There is no word yet if the NYPD are looking into the matter that occurred in their jurisdiction back in 1986 between then 14-year old Rapp and Spacey.

The sexual assault claims, which were implicitly validated by Spacey, came as the Emmy nominated House of Cards is currently in production in Maryland on its sixth season.

As reported earlier, late on Sunday Rapp claimed that then 26-year old Spacey drunkenly put the then teen on a bed to “seduce” him. “I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually,” Rapp said last night of the 1986 incident when the Stacey and he were both on Broadway in a revival of Long Day’s Journey Into Night and Precious Sons respectively. Shortly afterwards, Spacey issued a statement on twitter saying he “did not remember the encounter” but added he was “horrified” by what Rapp described. “If I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior,” Spacey also said.

Spacey then decided to use the occasion to seemingly shift focus in announcing publicly that he had “choose now to live as a gay man,” The American Beauty star drew harsh rebukes swiftly online and otherwise. As for Rapp himself, the actor said on Twitter after Spacey’s apology and announcement that he had “no further comment ..at this time.

The 13-episode Season 6 of House of Cards is expected to debut in mid-2018 on Netflix.

i wrote a review of house of cards on netflix about 3 years ago after watching the first 3 episodes; it sucked and I also wrote how it was apparent that this guy had a fetish with children because of all his movies (american beauty etc) had him in a realtionship with a child including H of C when he went down on that redheaded 20 yr old.............gross!

Needless to say netflix buried my review immediately.......spacey is an obvious perv.

Hooray for Faggotwood…
That screwy, ballyhooed Faggotwood
Where any office boy or young mechanic
Can be a panic, with just a good drop to the knees.

They have been running Hollywood for over twenty years now…

.. especially the script writers (movies and particularly TV).

Why do you think the society we have now has all kinds of sexual dysphoria?

Somebody tell me why we have gay cowboys or why there had to be a faggot in “V for Vendetta” or the same one in “Sherlock Holmes” outside of the pervert agenda.

Is there a single person employed in Hollywood who is not a complete degenerate?

My God... move in with flame-throwing tanks and burn the place to the ground already.

....Aaaaaaand it's gone.

He knew this would torch his career- makes me wonder to what extent he's really been busy diddling kids......

It's so unfair to associate faggotry with pedophilia.  Except, ya know...

Update: Netflix is in a serious discussion to produce "House of Pizzas" as a replacement.

“It's so unfair to associate faggotry with pedophilia.”

Respectfully…

Get this through your head…

Look what is happening with faggot and lesbo sponsored “gender identity” for toddlers today.

Modern faggotry has always been about getting to the kids.  

Period… full stop.

F...

The only response to people who accept this deviancy, not to God but to natural moral order and civil society order is a complete and ignominious defeat.

Western civilization has lived and tolerated deviancy as long as it was minimalized and stayed in the closet…

Now that the deviants had made perversion so much “mainstream”, the natural order must smack it down.

Save the children...

 

Deal with it,...

..it is coming.

 

If it takes 300,000,000 guns...

Well, what the heck............................

As we've seen with Weinstein once the dam breaks the will be a deluge of claims of child molestation coming out in short order.  Get ready.  

It makes me wonder if Spacey likes walnut sauce on his pizza...but of course any claims that people in power would ever do anything sexual that might harm a child is pure fantasy and conspiracy theory.

Clint Eastwood is a real man. Even at his age I wouldn't want to fuck with him.

Its interesting that Zero Hedge won't let me give you a 'thumbs up' (tried repeatedly) but it has no problem allowing me to hit the 'reply' button!

I think you have a LOT more thumbs up than you see here (29).

I stopped after Season 2, when it got too predicatble in its level of tawdryness.

A healthy mind and spirit takes no pleasure in that kind of degradation and perversion.  Apparently millions disagree.

Don't care for libs or homos, but, no one should be punished for 30 year old he said, he said allegations. If there is no one anywhere in your past that might hold a grudge against you, then you have led a very dull and empty life.

ShorTed's picture

I got a pissed off ex-wife who's got a grudge of biblical proportions.    but since i don't sodomize kids are you trying to say my life is dull and empty?

Killdo's picture

I think the only people who hold grudge against me are people I met while living in LA (some where my neighbors)  like Kevin Spacey (i.e. his co-producer of the House of Cards) all mostly from HBO - because I wrote a book about them (althought after a few years they forgave me I think)

All of the Hollywood scum are guilty of sexual assault.  That's what they do.  How many young girls has Ellen (the) Degenerate raped?

 

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Yes, though I can say a few of my drunken moments were nothing to be proud of, no children were molested, no animals ritualistically sacrificed and not one religious artifact was defiled.

That someone would lean to such things when drunk is revealing.

I kilt a racoon one time that disturbed my drinking by making a ton of noise on the roof, but other than that, I'm clean...

I'll own up to a rather plump girl when I was single but I plead mitigating factors...

It was last call and she was very pretty. And she was very energetic for a chubby chick. Come to think of it, she was a lot of fun and we had a very good time.

What were we talking about?

it's possible you might be my long-lost twin brother. last-call girls, the ones without the sheen of desperation, ARE a lot of fun

These Hollywood perverts are like cockroaches. When you see one you can rest assured there are a hundred or more lurking in the shadows.

Demologos's picture

We used to turn off the lights in a friend's garage and sit on the counter tops, then after a few minutes the lights were switched on and we jumped off to stomp on as many cockroaches as possible. Great fun!

We used to smoke dope and dab em with day-glo paint then turn on a blacklight.
