Kevin Spacey Loses Prestigious Award After Accusation That He Tried to Seduce a 14-Year-Old

Kevin Spacey has lost out on a special lifetime achievement TV award after allegations that he made sexual advances to a teenage boy 30 years ago.

Spacey, who has had a long acting career and most recently won acclaim for starring in Netflix’s “House of Cards,” was slated to receive the International Emmy Founders Award in a ceremony next month. The International TV Academy has said that the award is being withdrawn “in light of recent events.”

After Harvey Weinstein’s long history of sexual harassment and rape allegations recently became public, more people in Hollywood have been coming forward with accounts of attempted assault or worse.

Fellow actor Anthony Rapp has claimed that when he was 14, a 26-year-old Spacey invited him to a party and later in the night, got him alone and tried to get him into bed.

Netflix has since announced that “House of Cards” is ending after its sixth season.

GLENN: A martyr for social change. That's apparently how Harvey Weinstein sees himself. Not as an alleged rapist, serial molester, but as some sort of warrior for change all of a sudden. According to the Hollywood Insider, Weinstein is trying to spin his disgrace into a teachable moment. He's allegedly telling his friends, you know, I was born to take a fall like this, for this behavior, in order to change the world.

Wow. Sociopath? Perhaps. Completely ridiculous, absolutely.

But he is right in this: He did change the world. Every day since his scandals came to light, it seems like another Hollywood figure is outed for their inappropriate behavior. I'm waiting for this to spread to other dirtbag places, like, oh, I don't know, Washington, DC.

But it remains in Hollywood right now. This week, Kevin Spacey was accused of making sexual advances on a 14-year-old in the 1980s. And the fallout from this accusation could destroy his career.

Netflix quickly announced, next season of House of Cards -- deeply troubled by last night's news concerning Kevin Spacey, and we're going to cancel it.

Now they're saying that they made that decision long ago. But it didn't stop Netflix from taking the opportunity to create the image that they made this announcement based on his behavior.

Nobody wants to be associated with somebody who assaults another person. Ever. Spacey's behavior is unacceptable, if it's true. Weinstein's behavior, wildly unacceptable. And hopefully, Hollywood has learned a hard, painful lesson, and all of us have as well, there are no secrets left in the world. However, we really need to learn something called due process. Due process exists for a reason.

And I'm afraid that especially on Halloween, if we're not careful, this is going to turn into a witch hunt.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety."

They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
