More People Come Forward Accusing Kevin Spacey Of Sexual Assault
Following claims that Kevin Spacey sexually abused actor Anthony Rapp when he was just 14 years old, more people have come forward accusing the Oscar-winner of sexual assault. Click through to find out more about the horrifying allegations against him.
Former news anchor Heather Unruh said Kevin assaulted one of her relatives. She called the actor out in a tweet on October 13. "The
#weinsteinscandal has emboldened me-- #truth time," she said, referring to the sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein. "I was a Kevin Spacey fan until he assaulted a loved one. Time the dominoes fell."
Heather said it was not her place to give out more details, tweeting "My intent was to encourage a badly needed investigation and conversation."
Another woman tweeted that her friend, who worked with Kevin at the Old Vic theater in London, alleges he was "groped' by the actor. "Was apparently always known as one to avoid," she wrote of Kevin. 'Sadly unsurprised by Anthony's claims." She's since made her account private.

"Have heard similar from more than one source," another woman wrote of the allegations against Kevin. "Hope more people come forward, but understand if they feel they can't."
So far, Kevin has only responded to one of the public allegations against him, those made by Anthony. "I owe him the sincerest apology," he wrote, blaming his actions on "drunken behavior." He also came out as gay in the apology, a move that's upsetting a lot of people, as they think he's conflating homosexuality with pedophilia.
