More Accuse Kevin Spacey of Sexual Predation

Written by Joe Scudder

As expected, others accuse Kevin Spacey of sexual exploitation.

I suggested earlier that it was not likely that Anthony Rapp would be the only one to accuse Kevin Spacey. Sure enough, the very same day more accusations surfaced. Additionally, Rosie O’Donnell tweeted to Spacey that “we all knew about u.” She explained that they didn’t know specifics, but there were rumors that he was “creepy.”

The Daily Mail reports, “Revealed: Kevin Spacey is named as the Hollywood star accused of assaulting TV news anchor’s loved one – as he admits there are more ‘stories’ about him.

The Oscar-winning star accused of assaulting the loved-one of a TV journalist two weeks ago can today be named as Kevin Spacey who has suggested there could be more ‘stories’ about him to emerge.

Former US news anchor Heather Unruh said the Harvey Weinstein scandal had given her the courage to accuse the House of Cards star, 58, of attacking someone close to her.

Ms Unruh made her damaging claims more than two weeks before Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp got an apology after he said the actor, then 26, tried to seduce him when he was just 14.

She tweeted a picture of Spacey on October 13 with the message: ‘The #weinsteinscandal has emboldened me … I was a Kevin Spacey fan until he assaulted a loved one. Time the dominoes fell’.

Ms Unruh has declined to give any more details about the alleged incident only adding: ‘My intent was to encourage a badly needed investigation and conversation’ and used the hashtag #It’sNotOk.

Another friend of a victim, Nadine West,  came forward on Monday to claim that a young man close to her was ‘groped’ by Spacey while working alongside the actor at the Old Vic in London.

‘Was apparently always known as one to avoid. Sadly unsurprised,’ added West in a post on Twitter.

The identity of the Hollywood star Ms Unruh had accused online was not reported until Mr Rapp’s damaging allegations emerged overnight.
