House of Cards Fires Kevin Spacey in lieu of Sexual Allegations

Kevin Spacey’s Coming Out

After the news broke, Spacey issued a statement in which he came out as a gay man. Many believed this to be a form of deflection. Later, Spacey apologized for his alleged behavior toward Rapp.“I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been 30 years ago. But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years.” he said.

Many of the men who have come forward described a consistant pattern. Spacey continuously used his closetedness as an plea to keep things queit. One of the most recent allegations, from a journalst said,“Being closeted has for him enabled him to use this privacy claim as a shield against anybody looking closely at his actual behavior. And then it may have served as this strange, protective mechanism, to say, ‘My whole sexual life is off limits because of my sexuality.'”
