Controversy Over Kevin Spacey Accusation & Response

The outrage is growing over actor Kevin Spacey's response to accusations that he was sexually inappropriate with a minor. After a Buzzfeed News story in which Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of putting him on a bed and making sexual advances toward him when Rapp was 14 years old, Spacey released a statement on Twitter. In it, he apologized and also came out as gay — which drew the ire of many. In response to the scandal, Netflix has halted production of the popular show in which Spacey stars, House of Cards.
 
Jim Braude is joined by Gina Scaramella, executive director of the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, and E.J. Graff, the managing editor of the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage blog and a senior fellow at Brandeis University's Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism, to discuss.
