Eight 'House of Cards' Employees Accuse Kevin Spacey of 'Predatory' Behavior, Sexual Assault

Eight people who have worked on the set of House of Cards are coming forward with accusations of sexual harassment against the show’s star Kevin Spacey.

CNN has spoken to the employees, who either currently work on the show or worked on it in the past, on the condition of anonymity.

One of the employees alleges that he was sexually assaulted by Spacey while he was driving with the actor to set. When they were just minutes away from their arrival, and while the car was still moving, Spacey allegedly put his hands down the production assistant’s pants.

“I was in a state of shock,” he said. “He was a man in a very powerful position on the show and I was someone very low on the totem pole and on the food chain there.”

The production assistant says he was cornered by Spacey in the actor’s trailer once they arrived on set. The assistant told him, “I don’t think I’m ok with this, I don’t think I’m comfortable with this,” and then Spacey fled the trailer and left set for the day.

“I have no doubt that this type of predatory behavior was routine for him and that my experience was one of many and that Kevin had few if any qualms about exploiting his status and position,” the assistant added. “It was a toxic environment for young men who had to interact with him at all in the crew, cast, background actors.”

    Oh boy.
    The end of HoC as we know it. They won’t complete the season unless Claire gets a phone call about Frank’s death in the middle of the night, and has to play Jackie with sharp claws.

    kevin spacey, geffen, bryan singer……hey FBI, maybe you should go a little deeper about the trips to the island. “I would prefer a boy who doesnt speak english – I dont want to hear him talk” – one person of the above 3 said that. I think you can guess who, since Im commenting on this article. geffen and singer better hope their friend doesnt flip on them. singer was smart, he took a boat (no record) and not a plane, which has a log. spacey was not smart, and is on the flight log…where theres smoke, theres a fire. bye bye pedos. epstein in court december 5th, should be fun! hey kevin, are you still banned from bohemian grove? heard they kept all the tapes you made…

    wtf are you talking about? are you fucking high?

    Nope. Weinstein and Spacey are just tips of the iceberg in Hollywood. Hopefully, many more will go down.

    Nope, it’s a known rumor that many of these men had a private island where they would rape young men and women. Those are just three of the people involved….Hollyweird is a disgusting place and I think all the cards are falling now.

    YES, these predatory behaviors have been rumored about for YEARS — way before HoC. Always young men, always “up and coming” actors trying to break into the business, or always low level guys such as assistants.

    I stopped watching after the first episode of this season. Too outrageous and nonsensical – the plots had become too ridiculous. But most of all it was TOO DARK. I mean, just malevolent all the time. No good characters, no joy, just dark.

    I hope these people sue Netflix. Kevin was enabled by netflix executives

    Why would they need a private island for that? A weekend getaway at a cabin or a hotel suite would have sufficed.
