- Kevin Spacey came out as gay earlier this week
- This was after he was accused of sexual misconduct
- Now, the actor has taken a break for 'treatment'
The Kevin Spacey shocker arrived in the wake of the downfall of disgraced Hollywood Moghul Harvey Weinstein. After Anthony Rapp's account, many others like Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos and documentary filmmaker Tony Montana have also accused Kevin Spacey of making sexual advances. In a Facebook Post, Roberto wrote: "There are a lot of us who have a 'Kevin Spacey story'." Meanwhile, in an interview with Radar, Tony alleged the senior actor behaved with him inappropriately in 2003.
There are more repercussions to the Kevin Spacey allegations. Netflix announced House Of Cards has been cancelled beyond season 6 (which is yet to be released). As per an AFP report, Netflix and production house Media Rights Capital issued a joint statement saying they were "deeply troubled" by the allegations against the actor, who is currently not scheduled for shoots.
In the light of current events, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has decided to not honour Kevin Spacey with the 2017 Emmy Founders Award.
