Netflix ending 'House of Cards,' says 'troubled' by Spacey allegation

The sixth season of the Netflix drama "House of Cards" will be the show's last, amidst allegations star Kevin Spacey made sexual advances toward an underage boy in the 1980's.

That said, it stands to reason that Netflix would have done everything in its power to keep the show alive and well, even if Rapp hadn't come forward.

"He was trying to seduce me", Rapp told Buzzfeed. He wrote that he owed Rapp a "sincere apology" for what he said would have been "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior."A representative for Spacey did not immediately respond to Reuters for comment". He also addressed "stories" about his personal life, and confirmed that he now "lives as a gay man".

Spacey subsequently apologized and came out as gay in a statement released Sunday night, but both gestures were poorly received by the public and the entertainment industry alike.

Spacey has been criticized for his response on social media by celebrities and LGBTQ activists and organizations, including GLAAD.

Netflix is ending House of Cards, but not because of sexual misconduct allegations against the show's star, Kevin Spacey.

"My memory was that I thought, 'Oh, everybody's gone".

The final 13 episodes of the show are set to premiere in 2018, with Netflix claiming they planned the show's end many months ago.

Filming on Season 6 of "House of Cards" started about two weeks ago in the Baltimore area, according to a spokesperson for the Maryland Department of Commerce.

He claims he managed to wrangle away from the actor and went home but after recent allegations about Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, he made a decision to speak out. What have you heard about "Gore?".

That's going to be the challenge for any project that has Kevin Spacey attached. As The Daily Beast " s Ira Madison notes in a must-read editorial, "There's never truly a wrong time to come out and I'd never begrudge anyone for accepting their sexuality.

Hollywood and some top US companies have been rocked in recent weeks by allegations from scores of women that executives had sexually harassed or assaulted them. The streaming giant also said it was "deeply troubled" by the allegations. That said, I take reports of such behaviour seriously and this is no exception. I feel for Mr. Rapp and I support his courage.
