Kevin then issued a public apology while revealing that he is gay.

The award was scheduled to be presented at the International Emmy Awards Gala on November 20 in New York City.

ICYMI, Netflix has also announced that House of Cards will be ending after its sixth and final season.

    what if the news about Spacey came out after he’d been awarded? do you think the Emmy committee would take the award back?

  • FerCat

    The fact that more people are running away from him would suggest that there is much more to the Rapp accusations.

  • Vanity

    Its scary when anyone can accuse someone of anything & its taken as a fact & something to believed. Sorry but I need more than just one persons word.

    If it were completely made up, Kevin would have denied it and would have sued Anthony for defamation. Yet he didn’t do either of those things so the accusation has to be true.

  • Curt Noydb

    Not a super fan but let me try and understand. Something happened 32 years ago and now you speak out? Sorry, that isn’t courage Rapp. Sounds more like someone wants attention.

  • Vanity

    you do know that there are shades of gray in life not everything is black & white. He did deny it by saying I don’t remember it.

    btw, if Spacey is a pedo, I mean there would be more people speaking out. that behavior doesnt just happen once.

  • mafragias

    prbly there is more to this and they try to protect themselves before it blows up in their face.

    I don’t believe that it’s that easy for a man to say that he’s been sexually abused. Plus prbly there is more to this, than we know.

    SHAME ON YOU,LITTLE PIG,GARBAGE ,,…….SAY IT….WHAT KIND OF CREME WHAT DO YOU WANT ON YOUR BODY FOR YOUR ENCOUNTERS?FUCK YOU FUCK YOU ,FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!

  • Sharis

    As long as those are allegations…made only by one person… I don’t think there should be such consequences. In Weinstain’s case where there’s plenty of accusers I understand how he’s condemned before any trail, but in this case it doesn’t seem fair to me.

  • SilentHillSiren

    Or, it’s a lot like the McCarthy hearings where all you needed was to be accused of being a Communist, or why not the Salem Witch Trials. Where all one has to do was point a finger and say they were guilty. Waiting 32 years to come forward is not heroism. Twitter and Buzzfeed are not 911. If something happens, report it. If not you’re doing disservice to those who have.

  • Vanity

    wow dude he wasn’t sexually abused. get the story straight.

  • mafragias

    Where did i say HE was abused ? Read my comment straight.

  • Kathleene Parker

    I agree. We’re in a new McCarthy era! Hello out there younger folks, were you not taught in school that no one is guilty until charged and given a day in court? God help anyone who catches the eye of the political correctness police. That would be today’s “snooze” media who can’t be bothered to give us real news or why our country is in crisis and broken, but by God, they can ruin reputations and run around as judge and jury. I spent my life as a journalist and my comment is that today’s media are poisonous, poorly educated, dangerous lot with KNOW CONCEPT OF WHAT REAL JOURNALISM IS. What it is, is NOT this sort of garbage!

  • Lisa

    Saying that he didn’t remember it isn’t the same as saying that it never happened. He never denied that happening. And the fact that he isn’t suing Anthony for defamation speaks volumes.
    And more people did speak out, for instance, a man accused Spacey of grabbing his crotch at a bar a few years ago. Those accusations simply haven’t gotten as much media attention.

  • Lisa

    Most of the backlash he’s gotten has been because of his pathetic apology and how he chose to come out just to overshadow this accusation. The backlash hasn’t been only because of the actual accusation. It’s because of the way he has handled it.

  • FerCat

    True. But those running away are inside the industry so they may have more of an in depth knowledge of the guy. I’ve yet to hear from voices of qualified support for him if the event was truly an isolated one.

    The chance that it’s all just a knee-jerk reaction is still plausible for now.

  • SilentHillSiren

    First I want to thank you for an intelligent, reasonable opinion. It’s very rare these days on the internet.
    It’s true, it could be true. It’s so hard to say anymore. I have to admit that I find this atmosphere of “Listen and Believe” to be terrifying. Anyone can point their finger at anyone else and say “They did this” through Twitter, Blogs and YouTube and people are so afraid of being labelled a misogynist, rape supporter and various other things just because we don’t believe that someone should go to jail or have everything they’ve done stripped from them on one accusation that at these late dates are hard to prove either way. I’m speaking more in general here as I have no idea what’s going on with the Spacey issue at present.

    It’s a scary climate we live in when all you need to get someone discredited, fired, slandered and death threats directed toward them just for saying the wrong thing or having the ‘unpopular’ opinion. Hence the Salem reference. It reminds me so much of that and it’s scary.

  • FerCat

    I know what you mean. But it is being called out, but still too many voices in the position of power are perpetuating it. The pendulum is still swinging though.

    This was my earlier opinion of Spacey. I didn’t rush to judgement at the time.

  • Yeah Right

    well said!

  • Vanity

    defamation? to what exactly? Spacey never even touched him. there was no physical sexual contact.
    are you a lawyer now? do you know how hard it is to prove something that never happened or vice versa? most of those cases are thrown out of court rooms anyway. they are a complete waste of time. just like me responding to you…

  • SilentHillSiren

    What do you think of him ‘coming out’ at this time? I know many prior are seeing it as a diversionary and manipulative tactic but I really don’t see how. Coming out as gay would seem to make the young man’s claim that more valid and (as far as I’ve read, I’m not positive) he doesn’t seem to be claiming anything along the lines of the “I’m being attacked just cause I’m gay” card.

    Since you seem like a rational person I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. It seems like very odd timing.
