Netflix Announces End of ‘House of Cards’ After Spacey Sexual Wrongdoing Allegations
Netflix “deeply troubled” by allegations
Monday, Variety reported popular Netflix series ‘House of Cards’ will end with the upcoming sixth season.
According to Reuters, Netflix was “deeply troubled” by recent allegations of sexual wrongdoing.
Netflix drama “House of Cards” will end with its upcoming sixth season, Variety has learned. Production has begun on what will be the final season of the drama series, which is set to premiere in 2018.
…Spacey is the star and executive producer of “House of Cards,” the drama series that put Netflix on the map as a destination for original programming. Since 2013, the series has been nominated for 53 Primetime Emmy Awards — including five nominations for outstanding drama series.
Starring alongside Robin Wright, Spacey plays Frank Underwood, a devious congressman who ascends to the role of President of the United States through a series of complex machinations.
Filming for season six began in Maryland this month. No premiere date has yet been set by Netflix. Season five premiered May 30 on the streaming service.
Sunday night, Buzzfeed published allegations levied by actor Anthony Rapp, accusing Kevin Spacey, ‘House of Cards’ star, of improper sexual advances some thirty years ago. Rapp was 14-years-old at the time of the alleged incident.
Spacey claims he remembers nothing, but apologized if he did act as accused while drunk. Then, Spacey announced he was gay (like there’s anyone left who didn’t know that). Mary blogged earlier:
On Sunday night, BuzzFeed published an interview with actor Anthony Rapp, who accused Kevin Spacey of making a sexual advance on him when he was only 14-years-old over 30 years ago.
Spacey stated he did not remember the incident, but also used the opportunity to officially come out as a gay man, which has been speculated for many years.
Now many, especially in the LGBT community, have blasted Spacey for using his sexuality as cover for his alleged sexual misconduct. They have a point because I noticed a lot in the media making the story about Spacey’s sexuality instead of Rapp’s claims.
So not only is he trying to use his sexuality to deflect from the real issue at hand, he’s also exploiting the worst stereotype of gay men: child predators.
The flood of sexual assault allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein have emboldened many victims to speak up.
Actor Corey Feldman has spent years sounding alarm bells over Hollywood’s pederast problem, only to be largely ignored. Perhaps that too will change.

Did he give alcohol to the 14 year old victim?
Spacey may or may not have done it, but this is reaching a tipping point to become a witch hunt. (Next thing you know, we’ll be outing communists.)
Nonetheless, it should become more interesting when men or women start accusing certain powerful women of the same. We know it’s happened. A lot.
For example: hillary clinton is a letch. And that was absolutely cute with the Huffington Post:
“Busted! It seems Christina Aguilera’s ample bosom is so alluring that even Secretary of State Hillary Clinton couldn’t help but take a quick peep:”
Who knows: maybe it will come out that Fauxcahontas is a groper of of heap-big ‘tomahawks.’
If he didn’t do it, it’s odd that he admitted doing it. Next up: Corey Feldman.
Of course he ‘did’ it. But what exactly did he do? Touching the kid’s knee? Verbally propositioning him? Worse? More explicit?
Perhaps Spacey has done a lot worse to a lot more young men. But each situation merits its own examination of the facts.
We don’t want a situation where, like American college campuses, every woman seems to have been a rape victim – to the point of false accusations by sleazy glory-seekers (the Duke La Crosse case), tragic absurdity (‘mattress girl,’), or the recent case of a college woman literally throwing herself at a guy (on CCTV), making out with him, taking him home, then crying rape. (The guy was deemed innocent, but actually expelled from school for not getting the politically correct ‘proper consent’ per the school’s rules.)
It’s great to watch the hollywood/obama/clinton perv machine burst into flames. But watch it, before it gets Soviet in its terror – that is something the fascist left would love.
In summary, there are probably only three women in the history of hollywood who got entangled there and did not get sexually harrassed: rosey o’donnell, michelle obama, and hillary clinton. (Who knows: maybe hillary clinton will be come so desperate for attention, she’ll drag around a mattress – or have someone do it for her.)
It has been rumored for years that Spacey likes young men (perhaps too young). His denial that he was “drunk” and didn’t remember (but apologized if it were true) is pretty weak.
Not so fast, Netflix may not be pulling House of Cards just yet. Instapundit and John Nolte have more: https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/279691/
In NYC, there’s an old scam where a prostitute would search out, and sit herself next to a man alone in a movie theater, and then demand money or else she’d scream.
This will devolve into extortion.
Of course, Kevin Spacey was the whore (back in the day).
Enable and coddle rapers much?
Transgender, yes, because of the “No Labels” labels marathon.
Trans-social and pedophile. That merits an investigation.
Wow! Netflix is really going to punish old Spacey! AFTER the sixth and final season! If it were you or I we would be fired that day and that would be the end of our careers. But hey, one more season for attempted rape of a minor isn’t bad.
“Netflix ‘deeply troubled’ by allegations”
But not troubled enough to end the series right away.
I don’t know which I want to collapse the fastest, the NFL or Hollywood.
It’s a more exciting race than any Indy 500 ever was.
Phenomenal actor. Verbal Kint & Jim Williams were far & away his best characters until Frank Underwood & he plays him so well it feels like that’s really him. Not bad as Bobby Darin, either.
None of which absolves him. Let him reap what he’s sewn.
He’s a tailor?
More a tinker.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Got me. No edit function, so…
So now sexual deviants don’t want to claim other sexual deviants because it makes them look bad? BTW, everybody knows about Spacey. I thought that one had left the closet years ago.
Who lets their 14 year old go to a party with adults where there will be drinking? Do the parents share some of the responsibility here?
