American actor Anthony Rapp created a huge uproar when he told BuzzFeed that Kevin Spacey tried making sexual advances towards him when he was a minor in 1986. The 46-year-old said that Spacey had invited him to a party when he was 14 and seemed drunk when the alleged incident happened. He said Spacey befriended him while they both performed on Broadway shows about three decades ago and spoke publicly about the incident.

Responding to the accusation, Spacey put out a public statement apologizing the actor about the whole episode. He wrote: "This story has encouraged me to address other things about my life... I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose to now live as a gay man."

And now, in wake of the whole scandal, reports are floating around that Netflix has decided to cut short the run of House Of Cards, a highly-acclaimed series with Spacey in the lead.
