Two More Actors Come Forward Accusing Kevin Spacey of Sexual Harassment

The downfall of Kevin Spacey continues to plummet as each day goes by.  Earlier in the week, Rent actor Anthony Rapp detailed his alleged story of how Kevin made "unwanted sexual advances" on him when he was only 14 years old whereas the American Beauty actor was 26.  This story has resulted in Kevin's show House of Cards being suspended indefinitely, as Netflix is trying to figure out what to do with the popular series.  Not only that, but Kevin has also come out as gay in the process, which has been met with a ton of negative criticism both in and out of the LGBTQ community.

Now, two more actors have come forward with their own claims of sexual harassment by Kevin Spacey.  They are Roberto Cavazos and Tony Montana, Tony claims that Kevin harassed him back in 2003, where he was editing a documentary at a Los Angeles hotspot named Coronet when The Usual Suspects actor walked in with some friends.

I went up to order a drink and Kevin came up to me and put his arm around me. He was telling me to come with him, to leave the bar. (He) put his hand on my crotch forcefully and grabbed my whole package,” he old radaronline.com.

Tony recalled that a seemingly intoxicated Kevin then said to him, “This designates ownership.”

I put my hand down and turned his thumb back to get his hand off it,” Tony added.

Roberto, on the other hand has taken the social media route to recount his tryst with Kevin.

He wrote a letter in Spanish on his Facebook page that read, "I myself had a couple of unpleasant encounters with Spacey that were on the edge of being called harassment. Moreover, had I been a woman, I probably would not have hesitated to identify him as such, but I suppose that the lack of a more specifically direct or aggressive action led me to justify the incident as ‘one of those things."

If moral outrage is the new hip thing, why stop with Spacey ? Harvey Milk loved doing it with messed up teenaged boys when Milk was in his 30's.

Isn't having your crotch grabbed called being hit on in the gay world?

Hahahaha True! Back then it was a giddy little thrill that you laughed about (and part of you was even a little flattered). Today I guess you're supposed to stand against the wall sipping punch like a Mayberry Church Social. If I never hear the words ALLEGED or ACCUSATION again it'll be too fucking soon!!

Yesterday it was Kevin Spacey,today it's Jeremy Piven and Dustin Hoffman. Tomorrow it could be you.So guys....no more handing out compliments or buying someone a drink or giving them your number or asking them to dance or go to dinner. Its Sexual Harassment! You could end up in a lawsuit. I overheard a woman at a bar tell her friend 'he didn't really say anything, but the way he looked at me was creepy' So guys, keep those eyes covered. As Miss Kristin Johnston said on SEX &THE CITY: NEW YORK USED TO BE THE MOST EXCITING CITY IN THE WORLD. NOW, ITS SMOKING NEXT TO AN OPENED WINDOW

I don't dispute the accusations, but when you have someone like Rosie O'Donnell, who I see as credible, claim people knew about his actions for years, why was everyone quiet? My guess? Spacey is not that popular with the Hollywood elite.

This is good that the voice of Mr. Spacey's victims are being heard.  Although they will never see justice in a court of law (the statute of limitations has log expired for anything illegal that might have been done on Kevin Spacey's part), they will have justice in the court of public opinion. 

However, I cannot help but wonder if this whole episode is serving as a distraction.  Is Kevin Spacey being hung out to dry because there are other higher ups in the industry that have done far more and far worse than what he's done?  No matter how revolting his actions, Spacey's behavior has not (yet) reached Weinstein levels of assault/harassment.  I have a feeling there are gay versions of Mr. Weinstein out there that are resting comfortably because of the culture of silence that surrounds Hollywood and the "glass closet."  Many of their victims probably will not come forward because that would mean that they would have to come out officially.  Or they have straight victims out there would be ashamed and embarrassed if they came forward.  I think we need to be careful about focusing too much attention on Kevin Spacey otherwise other predators in Hollywood will continue to act with impunity.
