Netflix cuts ties with Kevin Spacey as more accusations surface

Netflix cuts ties with Kevin Spacey as more accusations surface

"Netflix will not be involved with any further production of "House of Cards" that includes Kevin Spacey", the company said in a statement late on Friday.

Just as Netflix's hit political drama thriller returned strongly with a fifth season, sexual misconduct allegations against the series' lead player Kevin Spacey have surfaced.

Spacey's contract could prevent the show from continuing without him, according to Variety.

The streaming company suspended production earlier this week of the upcoming sixth and final season of the political intrigue drama, in which Spacey plays USA president Frank Underwood.

His departure may not mean the end of the show, however.

Perhaps you're one of the people who completely lost their chill when House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey sort of announced he is a pedophile/sex predator and a gay man, as if the two are somehow related and tried to blame it on the alcohol, as the song goes.

"MRC, in partnership with Netflix, will continue to evaluate a creative path forward for the program during the hiatus", it said.

"Star Trek" actor Anthony Rapp is the first person to step forward regarding the sexual harassment controversy surrounding Spacey.

New accusations reported by CNN detail eight House of Cards employees' claims of sexual harrassment from Spacey, and one of those of sexual assault.

Even though Spacey told a representative that he is seeking for treatment, in fact, his attitude is the problem that made Rapp to trigger the scandal.

Meanwhile, police officials at Scotland Yard in Britain have opened an investigation into Spacey after a male actor claimed he was sexually assaulted by Spacey in London nine years ago.

"House of Cards" debuted on Netflix in February of 2013 and immediately put the streaming service on the prime time map.

Spacey's upcoming Gore Vidal biopic, Gore, which he was set to produce and star in, has also been scrapped by Netflix.
