On Sunday evening, America was shocked after actor Kevin Spacey’s bombshell announcement, in which he revealed that he is gay. Spacey is best-known for his starring role in the hit series, “House of Cards,” but has played in several movies including “Seven,” “Horrible Bosses,” “Nine Lives,” “Pay it Forward,” and many others.
Spacey’s confession came after fellow actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making sexual advances on him dozens of years ago when Rapp was only 14 years old and Spacey was 26. A personal statement was released via social media, apologizing to Rapp for his inappropriate behavior although he reportedly does not recall the incident. Read his full statement below.
On Monday morning, comedian Rosie O’Donnell responded to Spacey’s announcement on Twitter. She stated, “u don’t remember the incident - 30 years ago? - f--k u kevin - like Harvey we all knew about u - I hope more men come forward.”
In her comment to Spacey, O'Donnell admitted that she knew about Harvey Weinstein’s and Spacey’s sexually abusive behavior. That being said, she immediately came under fire for not speaking up throughout the years if she actually knew what was going on.
Rosie also retweeted one of Rapp’s Twitter posts, coming to his defense. She thanked him for sharing his story and ensured he has her support.
Rapp came out with his personal story following the fallout of Harvey Weinstein, an infamous Hollywood producer who is currently facing multiple sexual harassment and rape allegations. Since the Weinstein scandal, many others in the industry have come out with their story including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Kaya Jones, and more.
