People who work in the industry or have friends who do, always hear these rumors about rich and powerful executives, actors, producers, directors, and the double lives in they lead.
McFarlane hinted at this during a 2013 Oscars joke.
Seth McFarlane somehow called Kevin Spacey’s alleged behavior way back in 2005 in this Family Guy clip that features a nude Stewie running through a clothing store, screaming about being trapped in Kevin Spacey’s basement.
Everyone was pretty much unanimous in decrying Spacey’s decision to come out as a “smokescreen” from the fact that he once allegedly attempted sexual advances on a minor.
Others were shocked at how well Spacey’s “ploy” is working.
While others were just shocked that Spacey would conflate an archaic stereotype of homosexuals “lusting” after young boys.
There are tons of other people who’ve criticized the way Spacey came out. And as painful as it is for survivors like Rapp to come out and share their stories, it’s an important step in ensuring that inappropriate sexual advances are not tolerated, no matter how talented, rich, or powerful the individual.
