After it was revealed over the weekend that actor Kevin Spacey allegedly sexually harassed a 14yr-old boy, Netflix has decided to give “House of Cards” the axe.
Multiple media reports have said the final sixth season will be the show’s last.
After the report from Buzzfeed News, many fans were demanding that the show get canceled.
The allegations Spacey face come from actor Anthony Rapp whom alleged Spacey, then 26, made a sexual advance on him when he was just 14.
Almost immediately after the report broke Spacey replied via twitter admitting that he does not remember the incident, was probably drunk, is bisexual and would now like to identified as gay.
Via Fox News: According to Entertainment Weekly, “House of Cards” recently began filming its sixth season. Several reports said the show was already considering making this season its last.
Rapp said that in 1986, Spacey, a fellow Broadway actor at the time, invited Rapp to his apartment for a party. Later in the evening, Spacey, then 26, allegedly “picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance,” according to the Buzzfeed News report.
Rapp recalled he pushed Spacey off of him, went to a bathroom and closed the door, thinking: “What is happening?” He told Spacey he had to go home, to which Spacey allegedly asked if Rapp was “sure” he wanted to do that.
