Kevin Spacey Responds To ‘Star Trek’ Actor Anthony Rapp’s Accusation Of Sexual Misconduct


Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp recently went on record to recount the time actor Kevin Spacey made sexual advances towards him. Deadline reports that the House of Cards actor allegedly made a pass at Rapp in 1986 when the two were working together on the Broadway play, Precious Sons. Spacey was 26 and Rapp was 14 years old at the time.

The incident took place at an after party at Spacey’s apartment, when the latter put Rapp on bed and climbed on top of him.“I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually,” he said.

Rapp, now 46, told Buzzfeed News in an exclusive interview about how he felt anger and frustration towards Spacey especially since he flourished in his career with Tony and Oscar awards to his credit. “I still to this day can’t wrap my head around so many aspects of it. It’s just deeply confusing to me,” he said.

Rapp said he felt compelled to come forward after several victims started opening up about their abuse.

Spacey responds

Meanwhile, Kevin Spacey responded to Rapp’s allegation with an apology. While he said that he didn’t remember the incident, he claimed to use this revelation as an encouragement to change things about himself. He also openly declared himself as a gay man and vowed to examine his life.

Amidst Spacey’s note, Rapp took to Twitter about not sharing any further comments on the matter.
