Kevin Spacey

Kevin Spacey has been criticised for coming out as a gay man in a statement reacting to allegations made against him by actor Anthony Rapp.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, Rapp accused Spacey of making ‘sexual advances’ towards him when he was 14.

Spacey responded to the story by apologising, saying he couldn’t remember the incident, and revealing his sexuality, saying: “I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man.”

People have accused the House Of Cards actor for using the revelation as a distraction from Rapp’s allegations.
