Kevin Spacey has reportedly been accused of making the set of Netflix’s House of Cards into a “toxic” work environment by eight people who currently work or have previously worked on the series.
In an article by CNN, the staff members alleged that Spacey’s “predatory” behaviour included non-consensual touching and crude comments directed at staff who were typically young and male. One former production assistant alleged that the star had sexually assaulted him during the earlier years of the show while he was driving him to the set.
“I was in a state of shock,” said the man. “He was a man in a very powerful position on the show and I was someone very low on the totem pole and on the food chain there.”
