Broadway veteran Anthony Rapp was the first accuser to speak out, telling BuzzFeed News that Spacey made a sexual advance at him in 1986, when he was 14.

According to a Vanity Fair story published Tuesday, the 85-year-old writer told the publication he felt sad for Spacey, who is now embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal. "But the climate in this country has changed now thanks to the courageous women and all sexual abuse victims who have come forward with their accusations against Harvey Weinstein and other sexual abusers".

The Independent was unable to reach a spokesman for Mr Spacey, whose former public relations representative recently severed ties. The "House of Cards" star was there, too, and he stuck his hand in her son's trousers and grabbed his genitals, Unruh said. "He has tried his best to deal with it, but it is always there". He said his client spoke with Nantucket police last week, and they are conducting a criminal investigation.

The alleged assault happened at the Club Car Restaurant after Unruh said Spacey bought her son "drink after drink" until his was intoxicated.

Unruh said she has long wanted to say something about what Spacey allegedly did to her son. "In July 2016, actor Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted my son".

Spacey also came out as gay in the same statement saying, "As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. Spacey absolutely denies the allegations". Since then, more men have come forward with disturbing allegations of harassment and groping, including eight "House of Cards" employees. "You are not alone", she said last week on Twitter. "We will continue to work with [production company] MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show".

He has been dismissed from Netflix's House of Cards as the show's production outfit, Media Rights Capital, investigates his behavior on the set of the show. Spacey is also an executive producer on the series.
