If you thought the allegations against Kevin Spacey couldn't get worse, you were wrong. On top of the multiple allegations of Spacey sexually assaulting young boys, the House of Cards actor is now being accused of racism.
The New York Daily News reports that the security company working on the House of Cards set in 2012 may have encountered multiple instances of racism from the Academy Award–winning actor. Earl Blue, the head of VIP Protective Services, says Spacey told his security manager that he didn't "want n***ers watching my trailer" after seeing the "predominantly black staff" working on the set. When they acknowledged him, Spacey allegedly never shook their hands or looked their way while filming the series' season one either.
Blue said he brought up his concerns about Spacey to the higher-ups and was told "that's just the way he is" and "we've got to keep him happy."
Then, despite gaining positive reviews from the production team, VIP Protective Services did not return for season two. And Blue thinks Spacey had something to do with the company's $1.1 million contract not getting renewed.
Last year, actor Anthony Rapp, who now stars in Star Trek: Discovery, accused Spacey of sexually assaulting him in 1986 when Rapp was 14 and Spacey was 26. Since then, more than a dozen similar allegations have come to light against Spacey. Since then, he's been fired from House of Cards and completely replaced in an upcoming film, All the Money in the World. Spacey's Netflix original film, Gore, was also canceled.
Now, Spacey may be looking at a discrimination and loss of wages lawsuit.
