The allegation by Anthony Rapp may have put Spacey in the spotlight, but
ultimately what took out Spacey was the same as what is now getting
Louis C.K. It is a downfall as the result of current workplace

Now, as to why the current suspension / firing of these men is extending
into retroactively removing their product from the shelves...that sort
of reaction borders on mass hysteria.
