Netflix and the "House of Cards" producer, Media Rights Capital, announced the show would end after the conclusion of season six (though they added that such a decision had been made before the allegations) and some show executives arrived in Baltimore, where the series is shot, to make sure actors and crew "continue to feel safe and supported". The company "will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey", and "will not be moving forward with the release" of Gore, a Gore Vidal biopic that starred and was produced by Spacey. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below! One such person included actor and filmmaker Tony Montana, who told Radar Online that Spacey once groped him, grabbing his "whole package" while at a Los Angeles bar; Spacey then followed him into a restroom.

As a response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn't remember Rapp's alleged incident and apologising "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour". In it, he also came out publicly for the first time, acknowledging, "I choose now to live as a gay man".

Seven other people who the network spoke to agreed the "American Beauty" made life on the set of "House of Cards" hard.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos also claimed he fended off two "unpleasant" advances that "bordered on harassment" while at The Old Vic - the London theatre where Spacey was an artistic director from 2003-15. The man said: "I told him, 'I don't think I'm ok with this, I don't think I'm comfortable with this". When they were just minutes away from the set - and while the auto was still moving - the production assistant alleged that Spacey put his hands down the production assistant's trousers. "He was a man in a very powerful position on the show and I was someone very low on the totem pole and on the food chain there".

"Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment". Spacey has also been dropped by his publicist and talent agency, CAA as allegations continue emerge.

Anonymous co-workers have since come forward with more allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey.
