Netflix cut ties with “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey as he faces a series of sexual misconduct allegations.
The streaming service said in a statement Friday that it would not be involved in “House of Cards” moving forward if Spacey was part of the show.
“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey,” the statement read. “We will continue to work with [Media Rights Capital] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show. We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film Gore, which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey.”
Netflix and Media Rights Capital had suspended production on the hit series after Spacey faced allegations of sexually assaulting a minor in 1986.
The show was filming its sixth and final season before the allegations surfaced.
Actor Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed, in a story published Sunday, he was 14 years old when Spacey picked him up, put him on a bed, and “was trying to get with me sexually.”
Spacey was 26 at the time of the alleged misconduct.
Other men have since come forward accusing Spacey of sexual misconduct.
