    Default Daily Mail: Oscar-winning actor accused of assaulting a broadcaster's loved one

    A television journalist is making a startling claim about an A-list actor assaulting one of the journalist's loved ones.
    The Oscar-winning actor, who cannot be publicly named because the allegations have not been reported by authorities or otherwise confirmed, is being accused by the journalist of assaulting a loved-one who she has not publicly revealed.
    In referring to Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual assault or rape by dozens of women, the female broadcaster said on social media it was 'time the dominoes fell'.
    Of the actor, an insider told The Sun: 'Rumors about this actor have circulated for years.
    'Lots of people are making allegations after what's happened with Weinstein.
    'But no alleged victim of this particular man has spoken publicly as yet.'
    The broadcaster also said she is trying to encourage an investigation into the A-list actor, similar to what's occurring now with Weinstein.

    I was reading that this morning. I don't see how this journalist has a right to try to drag her friend out to make a public charge if she isn't ready to do it. Unless the actor involved is such a predator that he is continuing to victimize additional people.

    The actor is Kevin Spacey and the person's "loved one" is a he. The Mail may be keeping it secret but the original tweet was all over gossip sites two days ago.

    Yeah this is Kevin Spacey. I saw the tweet accusing him. He's always creeped me out. Maybe the journalist's family member wanted her to say something.

    Oh, shit. I was watching Baby Driver the other night with my kid and he asked about KS because he’s in a lot of movies we watch. I told him he’s an odd duck, fiercely private and there are lots of rumors that he’s gay, but KS has never confirmed or denied that either way (my son’s friend is gay, not out and my kid is worried his homophobic father is going to ban him as a friend — which I think is deplorable, but that’s my ex — so that kind of thing has been a topic between us for months). I’ve never seen anything about him being a sexual predator, but I don’t really read blinds. He’s a tremendously gifted actor, but that means nothing if he’s raping people. I am glad that the Weinstein mess has made it easier to find lost voices. Makes you wonder just how widespread this is going to come to be.

    Incredibly gifted actor. Incredible mimic, too. But there seem to have been lots of stories about him having a mean streak a mile wide, especially if you turn down an advance from him. See below:

    i'd heard he was a chicken hawk but not a rapey chicken hawk.

    Omg, I vaguely remember this article from I don’t know how long ago. How could I have forgotten something so awful?

    All the stories about him repeatedly propositioning any young, attractive male working with him are just so gross. Pity, he's a phenomenal actor.

    It sounds like he is a predator but people give him a pass because he is good at what he does. Propositioning and pressuring young men in the workplace is not OK. Hope he gets called out for it.
