Netflix Ending House of Cards After Kevin Spacey Allegations

The Netflix show "House of Cards" will be ending after its upcoming season after an actor claimed the show's star, Kevin Spacey, made a sexual advance at him at a party when he was a young teen. Since Anthony Rapp went public with his story, many more people have stepped forward to say that rumors of Spacey's misbehavior had been running rampant for years.

Netflix announced on Monday afternoon that the show would not be continuing. "House of Cards" is the American version of the British show with the same name, and aired its first season on Netflix in 2013. Its sixth (and now final) season will be aired next year.

In the wake of Rapp's allegation, Spacey issued an apology (and said he did not remember the incident as he was drunk) and publicly acknowledged his sexuality for the first time. Spacey was slammed by members of the LGBT community for seemingly trying to shift the narrative away from the fact that he may have assaulted a child to him coming out of the closet. 

Others took to Twitter to share that they had heard rumors or were even given explicit warnings to look out for Spacey.

Sick. It's looking more and more that Harvey Weinstein was just the tip of the iceberg.
