Kevin Spacey’s alleged sexual misconduct on the House of Cards set frequently occurred out in the open, according to a new report from BuzzFeed News.
The report cites multiple staffers, one of whom accused Spacey of regularly flirting with and making jokes about young men on set.
An anonymous high-level source is quoted as saying: "If it was wanted attention, it would still be inappropriate, because you're making flirtatious comments in front of a group of 150 people.” Another insider — who worked on season 2 of House of Cards — told BuzzFeed a friend warned him not to go play video games in Spacey’s trailer without bringing someone along.
One source alleged a production assistant was abruptly fired after reportedly refusing repeated harassment from Spacey.
When reached for comment, the unnamed PA told BuzzFeed he couldn’t discuss it without first speaking to his lawyers.
Media Rights Capital, which produces the Netflix series, told CNN one complaint over a “gesture and comment” made by Spacey during the first season was addressed and, quote, “resolved promptly to the satisfaction of all involved.” As new allegations surfaced, Netflix cut ties with the actor.
