Subject: Homo pedophile Kevin Spacey Cut From 'Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary Special' on CBS
The fallout continues for Kevin Spacey following allegations of sexual
The two-time Oscar winner has been cut from CBS' upcoming Carol Burnett
50th Anniversary Special, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Set to air Sunday, Dec. 3, other previously announced guests for the two-
hour special include Jim Carrey, Kristin Chenoweth, Stephen Colbert, Harry
Connick Jr., Bill Hader, Jay Leno, Jane Lynch, Bernadette Peters, Maya
Rudolph and Martin Short.
CBS is the latest to distance itself from the House of Cards star after
Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp alleged on Oct. 29 that Spacey
made unwanted sexual advances towards him in 1986 when Spacey was 26 and
Rapp was 14. Spacey subsequently issued a statement in which he said he
did not remember the incident but "sincerely apologized," but also drew
ire when he used that same statement to come out as a gay man.
Netflix and House of Cards producer Media Right Capital on Oct. 30 issued
a statement saying they were "deeply troubled" by the allegation. A day
later, the companies suspended production on the political drama, which is
currently shooting its sixth and final season, indefinitely.
However, allegations continued to mount against Spacey, including from
several House of Cards employees who spoke to CNN about their experience
with the actor. One production assistant recalled Spacey putting his hand
down his pants without his consent and then later touching him
inappropriately a second time. Another crewmember recalled Spacey
massaging his shoulders, touching his stomach.
On Friday, Netflix severed all ties with Spacey, including dropping the
Gore Vidal biopic Gore that was already in postproduction. The film was
set to be released in 2018.
"Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of
Cards that includes Kevin Spacey. We will continue to work with MRC during
this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show,"
a representative for the streamer said Friday in a statement. "We have
also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film
Gore, which was in postproduction, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey."
MRC issued a statement soon after confirming Spacey had been suspended
from the series.
