Kevin Spacey Comes Out as Gay After Being Accused of Trying to 'Seduce' a Teen

The news cycles don't take breaks on the weekends anymore. Hollywood keeps reeling from the aftermath of the still worsening Harvey Weinstein scandal, and another accusation was leveled in a new direction on Sunday night.

The Wrap reported that “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp on Sunday claimed that Kevin Spacey 'tried to seduce' him decades ago when he was a 14-year-old actor appearing on Broadway."

In an interview with BuzzFeed, Rapp said that a then-26-year-old Spacey invited him to a party in 1986 and "placed him on his bed, climbed on top of him and made a sexual advance" before Rapp was able to “squirm” away.

On Sunday night, Spacey said on his Twitter account, “I honestly do not remember the encounter … but if I did behave as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.”

Spacey decided to respond by coming out as gay, something that has been rumored for years.

The Twitter responses to this were generally harsh, and mostly not fit to share here. The gist is that he's closely guarded his sexuality for decades but decided to come out now to provide some sympathy cover.
