Eight different people from the cast and crew of the House Of Cards accused Kevin Spacey of “sexual misconduct” and misbehaving while on the set of the Netflix-produced series. The accusations against the actor come after Anthony Rapp accused the two-time Oscar winner of making “sexual advances” toward him when he was just 14-years-old.
According to the group of people who spoke with CNN, Spacey made the work environment “toxic,” and he behaved as a “predator.”
An assistant claimed Spacey sexually assaulted him during the filming of one of the initial seasons. According to the man in question, after he arrived on set, Spacey allegedly put his hands down the man’s pants without permission.

He said, when it happened, he “was in a state of shock” and Spacey was so influential that he could do anything to anyone who was there.
Later that day, the American Beauty alumni allegedly “cornered him” in a trailer and made “inappropriate contact” with him before he got away.
However, the man did not report the incident in question to police, but he did tell a co-worker who revealed it to CNN.
Additionally, the person stated the “type of predatory behavior” was routine for him and that he exploited his status as well as his position while on the set.
Furthermore, another crew member said Spacey repeatedly touched him inappropriately on his shoulders and his stomach.
A former camera assistant said Spacey’s behavior was known by everyone, but he always got away without repercussions. A crew member also said Spacey often made “sexual innuendo-type comments” while on set. After Rapp accused him of sexual assault, Kevin went into treatment not long after the Oscar winner claimed he didn’t remember the incident in question.
