House of Cards Canceled

House of Cards , Netflix’s flagship political drama, will end its run with its upcoming sixth season. The announcement comes as series star Kevin Spacey finds himself embroiled in allegations of attempted sexual assault against Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp when the latter was 14 years old. The report comes a day after Buzzfeed published a story in which Anthony Rapp alleges Spacey attempted to seduce him at a party in 1986, when the Star Trek: Discovery actor was a 14 year old just getting his start on Broadway. Spacey’s response – in which he claims to have no memory of the event and used it as an excuse to publicly come out as gay – has been roundly criticized as tone deaf and sending the absolute wrong message about the cultural of sexual predation in Hollywood that has exploded in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
