Kevin Spacey has been slammed for “deflecting” allegations he made asexual advance towards a child by coming out as gay in his apology.
These accusations were made after he came out as gay on his Twitter page, also apologising to Anthony Rapp.
While Spacey offered Rapp his “sincerest apology” in the statement, he also said he couldn’t remember the incident and said he must have been “deeply drunk”.
The Hollywood veteran then chose to address rumours that have surrounded his sexuality for decades by coming out as gay.
But commentators in Hollywood and elsewhere immediately slammed the response.
Many accused the actor of trying to dwarf the misconduct claims with news of his sexuality.
Anthony Rapp, 46, accused Spacey of making a sexual advance on him when he was 14.
