The employees who worked with Spacey on the set of House of Cards told CNN that the star created a toxic work environment.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, actor Anthony Rapp said he attended a party at Spacey's NY apartment in 1986, when he was 14. It was then that Spacey, who was driving, placed his hands on the assistant, telling CNN it was nonconsensual. "I was in a state of shock", the anonymous staffer said.

On Friday, amid Kevin Spacey's sexual misconduct scandal, Netflix has officially fired the actor from House Of Cards, in addition to canceling his upcoming Gore Vidal biopic Gore.

British police are investigating Spacey over an alleged assault which took place in 2008. The new season has just started filming, so it is assumed Spacey's character could be written out without scrapping the entire season.

"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." the statement concludes. The studio's statement reads, "MRC, in partnership with Netflix, will continue to evaluate a creative path forward for the program during the hiatus".

Spacey's longtime publicist, Staci Wolfe, and talent agency, C.A.A., both dropped him Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos wrote on his Facebook page that he encountered Spacey at the bar of London's Old Vic Theatre, where Spacey was artistic director from 2004-15, and the actor tried to fondle him against his will. He said, in part, that he did not remember trying to seduce 14-year-old Rapp, but that he apologized sincerely for "what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior". The man said: "I told him, 'I don't think I'm ok with this, I don't think I'm comfortable with this". Several people connected to the show came forward with sexual harassment allegations against Spacey.
