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.
