CancelNetflix suspended production on “House of Cards” as it investigates a sexual assault allegation against the show’s lead star Kevin Spacey.
“MRC [Media Rights Capital] and Netflix have decided to suspend production on ‘House of Cards’ season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew,” Netflix and production company Media Rights Capital said in a joint statement.
The news comes a few days after actor Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeedactor Kevin Spacey had made a sexual advance toward him at a party when he was 14 in 1986. Spacey said on Twitter he did not remember the incident, but apologized at “what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.'”
