Kevin Spacey has been under attack recently from allegations made by multiple Hollywood actors and directors.

The first allegation was made by Anthony Rapp. Rapp said that Spacey invited him over to his apartment for a party. At the end of night Spacey picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, climbed on top of him and tried to make sexual advancements. Rapp was only 14 at the time. [1]

Kevin Spacey responded to this allegation in a tweet. Spacey stated that he “did not remember the encounter” and that that would have been “inappropriate drunken behavior.”. [2]

More accusations came after the weekend by US filmmaker Tony Montana and Mexican actor Robert Cavazos. [3]

Montana said that he was in his 30’s when the incident took place. He said that Kevin Spacey touched him but Montana moved his hand away. Spacey latter followed him into the bathroom. [3]

Cavazos, who acted in several plays, claimed on Facebook that Spacey often preyed on young male actors under 30. He said that he fended off two attacks but other actors were too afraid to stop Spacey. [3]

Spacey has been under attack from the media for not just the allegation, but for coming out gay in the same tweet. People have criticized Spacey for this, thinking it looks like a scapegoat.[4]

Actor Zachary Quinto posted on twitter: “It is deeply sad and troubling that this is how Kevin Spacey has chosen to come out. Not by standing up as a point of pride — in the light of all his many awards and accomplishments, thus inspiring tens of thousands of struggling LGBTQ kids around the world — but as a calculated manipulation to deflect attention from the very serious accusation that he attempted to molest one.” [5]

“This is disgusting, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were more,” said sophomore Gabe Mulitauaopele.

“This is very awful. I hope he gets put in jail” said sophomore Jacob Green.

“It’s very sad that this has been revealed. I just hope that justice comes for other victims,¨ stated sophomore Greg Dellamura.

With all of this news coming out there is only one question left to ask- Which celebrity will be next?
