Kevin Spacey is accused of making unwanted sexual advances toward multiple men

Netflix has severed ties with Kevin Spacey in the wake of increasing sexual assault and harassment allegations against the actor.

Though an official termination of Spacey from House of Cards has yet to be confirmed as Netflix and MRC determine the show's future, Netflix has confirmed that it will not move forward with the Gore Vidal biopic starring Spacey.

"MRC and Netflix have chose to suspend production on House of Cards season 6, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew", Netflix and Media Rights Capital announced in a joint statement on October 31, 2017.

The employees who worked with Spacey on the set of House of Cards told CNN that the star created a toxic work environment.

As a response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn't remember Rapp's alleged incident and apologising "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".

The Japanese government is looking at a possible ban on all cigarettes in public areas in preparation for the 2020 Olympic Games. Japanese companies are encouraging its employees to quit smoking by providing the facility of six additional leaves.

After the charges against Spacey were publicized, Netflix said it had previously planned to end House of Cards after season six.

Another man, Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, shared a lengthy Facebook post that alleged that it was known within the acting community at the Old Vic Theater that Spacey preyed on young male actors.

"I was in a state of shock", he said. The production assistant said that the harassment stopped for long enough that he felt okay about driving to the set with Spacey. "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". When the staffer told Spacey he wasn't comfortable with the situation, he said Spacey became "visibly flustered" and left the set for the rest of the day. Spacey never denied those allegations, instead pointing the finger at his alcohol use at the time and using the opportunity to come out as gay, a decision that earned him scorn from critics wondering if he was trying to deflect outrage away from himself in the process.

"Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".
