Kevin Spacey came out as gay via social media late Sunday after actor Anthony Rapp accused him of making unwanted sexual advances more than 30 years ago. Spacey, 28, said in a two-paragraph tweet that he was shocked to hear Rapp’s allegations against him.
The allegation was that Spacey had climbed on top of him at a Manhattan party when Rapp was only 14. Spacey claims that he does not remember the occurrence, but he said he owes Rapp the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior. Then he later said, “It is time to address other things about my life.” “I choose now to live as a gay man.”
