Kevin Spacey Accused Of Using N-Word On Set Of 'House Of Cards'
Along with facing multiple sexual assault accusations, Kevin Spacey has now been accused of racism during his time on the set of House of Cards.
VIP Protective Services was the security company present during filming for the first season of the Netflix television series in 2012. Earl Blue, the head of VIP, said that Spacey told his security manager that he didn’t “want ni**ers watching my trailer” after seeing the “predominantly black staff” working on the set, according to a report from the Daily Mail. Spacey also allegedly never shook their hands or looked their way while filming the series either.
Blue said he brought up his concerns to set managers, who told him that “that’s just the way he is.” Although VIP received positive reviews from the production team, their $1.1 million contract was not renewed, which Blue believes Spacey had something to do with. Blue said he intends to sue the actor for loss of income.
Spacey, who portrayed President Frank Underwood in the show, was fired from House of Cards in early November, less than a week after Anthony Rapp accused him of sexual assault in 1986. Rapp was 14 at the time while Spacey was 26. Since then, over a dozen similar allegations have sprung up against Spacey. He has also been fired from House of Cards as well as completely replaced in an upcoming film, All the Money in the World. Spacey’s Netflix original film, Gore, has also been canceled.
