Kevin Spacey: Celebrities React to Molestation Accusation

On Sunday night, the world was stunned by accuations that screen icon Kevin Spacey had made sexual advances toward actor Anthony Rapp, who was just 14 at the time of the alleged incident.

Spacey issued a public apology in which he also came out as gay, a move that has only exacerbated the scandal.

Many feel the Oscar winner callously attempted to manipulate the conversation and re-focus the media's attention on his sexual orientation.

Here are some of the most incendiary celebrity reactions to both the allegations against Spacey and the actor's unexpected response:

1. Spacey Responds

Spacey issued a public response to Rapp’s accusation almost immediately. Unfortunately for the House of Cards star, many felt there was a deeply cynical motive behind his statement.

2. Spacey Misses the Point

Spacey statement
“This story has encouraged me to address other things about my life,” Spacey wrote in a statement posted to social media. “As those closest to me know, in my life I have had romantic relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man.”

3. Anthony Rapp

Las Vegas Shooting: Celebrities React to Terrorist Attack

Early this morning, news broke of a horrifying mass shooting in Las Vegas, one that is now the largest mass shooting in modern American history.

Current estimates list more than 50 dead victims and more than 400 people injured by the gunman, who opened fire from his hotel room and unleashed terror and death upon the innocents below.

We still know only a limited amount of information about 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, the shooter who has been identified as having committed this terrorist act before reportedly taking his own life.

But you don't need to know why people were massacred to reach out and share prayers and condolences.

Some people, celebrities included, went to bed before the news broke. Some of them still haven't awoken to learn what has happened.

We've seen people tweeting about this as soon as they awoke this morning.

Some tweeted last night, when this was still an active shooter situation. Social media spreads information very, very quickly.

A lot of celebrities have spoken out, even so early in the morning. Including Jason Aldean, whose show has been playing so very close to where the shooting took place.
