Eight current or former "House of Cards" employees claim they were sexually harassed and/or physically sexually assaulted by Kevin Spacey.
CNN's Chloe Melas reports number of people who worked on the hit Netflix TV show 'House of Cards' say Kevin Spacey's sexually abusive behavior made the set an awful place to work.
From CNN's report, grim lines like this: "Colleagues never complained because they were afraid of losing their jobs." Snip:
One former employee told CNN that Spacey sexually assaulted him.
The former production assistant, whose account has never previously been disclosed, told CNN that Spacey sexually assaulted him during one of the show's early seasons. All eight people, each of whom spoke to CNN on the condition of anonymity for fear of professional repercussions for speaking out, described Spacey's behavior as "predatory," saying it included nonconsensual touching and crude comments and targeted production staffers who were typically young and male.
The new accusations follow an explosive article published less than a week ago by BuzzFeed News, in which actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey made sexual advances toward him in 1985, when Rapp was 14 years old.
Earlier this week, Spacey released an apology statement responding to Rapp's publicly released account of what he claims was an incident of sexual assault.
"I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago," Spacey says. "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."
Production of Season 6 of the series was abruptly shut down this week, after Spacey's sorry-not-sorry.
Like Harvey Weinstein before him, Kevin Spacey is now said to be 'in treatment' or seeking it, for whatever disease it is that makes you a serial sexual predator.
“Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment,” his representatives said in a statement late Wednesday.
No details on the nature of the treatment have been disclosed to reporters.
