House Of Cards Production Suspended After Spacey Sex Assaut Scandal

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.

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.

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.

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?sAnd when did Sesame Street become "All Elmo All The Time?"Big Bird must be pissed.Yes, I have small children.

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.
