House Of Cards Production Suspended After Spacey Sex Assaut Scandal

Tyler Durden's picture

One day after Netflix announced that it would end House of Cards after the upcoming 6th season, it appears that the blowback against Spacey has been far greater than expected and according to the Hollywood Reporter, production on the current, sixth season of House of Cards has been suspended indefinitely following the sexual assault claims made against star and exec producer Kevin Spacey.

“MRC and Netflix have decided to suspend production on House of Cards season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew,” Netflix and producer Media Rights Capital said in a joint statement Tuesday.

The suspension comes two days after Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp alleged in that Spacey made sexual advances towards him when Rapp was 14 and Spacey was 26. Spacey immediately offered his "sincerest apology" to Rapp via Twitter and used his statement to deflect attention as flagrantly as possible, coming out as gay for the first time. By doing so he also managed to infurate the gay community, with his move immediately criticized by many in Hollywood as well as GLAAD.

As reported yesterday, on Monday, Netflix and MRC issued a statement saying they were "deeply troubled" by the allegations. Executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore Monday afternoon to meet with the cast and crew of the political drama "to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported," the statement continued. Spacey was not on set at the time, as was previously scheduled.

This is getting ridiculous.

Honest Sam's picture

"Getting"???

You must have been asleep the last 50 years.

The culture has been leading down to a replay of the last days of Rome. 

balz's picture

What is ridiculous is stopping a whole production because of some drunken unappropriate act done 30 years ago and for which he said he is sorry.

Hollywood is just a festering puss pocket of filth.

It just oozes wretched results.

And to think they have been lecturing us "phobes" about our immorality.

Same thinking.

Anyone else catching the irony here given Spacey's House of Cards character?

Hollyweird - the name says it all.  Now implode into the satanic heap you are.

Rich in irony..... Was just about to check out Spacey's last movie- "Baby Driver"- think I'll pass for now......

Spacey has a history of documenting his firsts.  Got caught in Bohemian Grove with a camera, filming himself with a trophy.  The guy is a serious predator.  Apparently those who knew about it at Bohemian Grove were suspended from their soiree (secret society) stuff.

geeze!

it's like having a homosexual pedophile for actor & producer is radioactive or something.

WTF?

I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Satan?

That's that evil character that told his follower to sacrifice his son to him, as well as caused femine, plaques and floods killing millions of people, right?

Oh, wait...that was done by the other character that people say is the good guy.

I hope Corey Feldman drop the BIGGEST Nuclear Bomb of all time of Hollywood.

Imagine, people lining up to see ONLY Conservative/Libertarian produced movies staring non pedophiles?!

Now THAT would be (an) EPIC!

Corey has his own set of issues.  From what his friend Corey Haim said, Feldman introduced Haim to the predators.  In Feldman's defense, he was a kid, and kid's follow instructions.  Corey Feldman would do well to talk to the Nickelodean kids that are destroying themselves.  There is a lot of dirt to spread around.

What's wrong with me is I don't see why we should stop a really good show because some guy was drunk and got over some teen with both their clothes on and that was 30 years ago and the guy said he is sorry. Are you a triggered snowflake or what?

Don't forget that he also topped off his appology with "but I like eating dick"...

Your head is apparently not screwed properly...

Yes, I am f'ing triggered that the pedo scum in hollywood have been raping and torturing children for a long time, and nothing has been done about it. The fact is that the people that rule the world are pedos, and worse. The torture and ritual murder of kids that is happening goes way beyond pedophilia. These people need to be ended!!!!  

I fully support Spacey losing his job, and you ain't seen nothing yet. Get ready for the rest of your comfortable little Truman show world of television shows and other distractions (NFL, Hollywood, etc.) to be totally disrupted as the truth is revealed.

Kevin spacey inherited the taste for young boys from his nazi son-fucking father:

That would awesome.

I know that Trump promised to drain the swamp, and is not doing it yet (not that we can easily see).

However,  it is great to see the sewers flushed. ....and since the sewers feed the swamp, maybe this is the beginning.

I'm no snowflake and I wouldn't mind kicking the shit out of you. Asshole.

Why the fuck is anyone with any measure of intelligence watching shit like this anyway. Get a fucking life, dipshit. And follow the story before commenting. Check out 4chan for some Spacey "vacation" pics. He like little Asian boys.

It's commonly referred to as "being an asshole".

Pedophiles are beneath 'scum' status . . he should be prosecuted to the extent of the law. I recommend general population, minimal security for all pedophiles & let prison justice be done.

balz's picture

Technically, 14 yo isn't pedophile and he didn't rape him or anything. He was drunk, acte inappropriately, and he said he was sorry. That was 30 years ago, come on. What is wrong with YOU?

GlassHouse101's picture

balz - I don't know what you're into, but I'm sure it's not good.

balz's picture

Maybe I'm not clear enough. What Kevin Spacey did was wrong, very wrong. It wasn't acceptable and there's no way you could defend it. But that was 30 years ago and he is sorry for that and nothing sexual happened. At some point life goes on and you don't need to shut down a show because of drunken behavior from 30 years ago. Anyway I'm out of here for today.

When the voice and puppeter of the Elmo character on "Seasame Street" was revealed to have made similar advances on young men, did PBS suspend production of "Seasame Street?"

BTW, anyone know who is doing the voice of Elmo these days?s

And when did Sesame Street become "All Elmo All The Time?"

Big Bird must be pissed.

Yes, I have small children.

"Big Bird", eh?  It's amazing how many things the CIA has its fingerprints on...

The problem isn't that you think it was so long ago and should be left alone.  The problem is you are acting as if this is the only time he ever did anything wrong.

This guy came forward probably because nothing happened.  This means the question is raised of "30 years and how many kids?"  They joked about this guy on Family Guy for crying out loud.  

As an aside I always thought Spacey was a sicko.  Just looking at him gave me the creeps.

Dude, if you think that this little escapade was the only Spacey infraction, I've got a bridge in Alaska to sell you. The fact that he frequented the Lolita Express with Clinton tells you all you need to know.

BarkingCat's picture

You know, if he had stopped at 14 isn't technically a pedophile, I would have upvoted you.

That statement is correct. The rest of your post is asinine.

I'm not speaking up for Spacey, but I thought the same thing. That show probably employs hundreds of people - all now out of a job.

I say shut down Hollywood entirely. It is a cesspool that is corrupting our youth.

The show is Spacey.  He was in every episode and about 50% of the scenes.  There is no other faux Southerner to take his place.
