Kevin Spacey Charged With ‘Indecent Assault And Battery’ For Alleged 2016 Incident With 18-Year-Old

Kevin Spacey has caused mouths to drop open everywhere after posting a freaky video of himself in a festive apron in character as Frank Underwood, his House of Cards role who was killed off after the actor faced claims of sexual assault.

Spacey will be arraigned in a Nantucket court on January 7, 2019.

The actor, however, released a video on YouTube on Monday in which he adopts the persona of his character Frank Underwood in the popular Netflix TV series House of Cards and says, "I know what you want, you want me back". The video was called Let Me Be Frank, apparently a reference to Frank Underwood, the ruthless United States politician he played in the Netflix series House of Cards. "Of course they're going to say I'm being disrespectful, not playing by the rules, like I ever played by anyone's rules before". I mean, after all, we shared everything, you and I.

"We're not afraid, not of what we said, not of what we did and we're still not afraid", Spacey said, ostensibly as Underwood.

"Of course, some believed everything and have been just waiting with baited breath to hear me confess it all". And you trusted me, even though you knew you shouldn't.

But I'm not sure what's more alarming: The number of people who have viewed the video or the plethora of comments below it that not only are in full support of Spacey but hate the fact that Netflix fired him in the first place. "They're just dying to have me declare everything said is true and I got what I deserved". "Are you still a believer in Santa?"

Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey may have been hit with formal sexual assault charges -but apparently that doesn't stop his audience. "You're smarter than that", Spacey went on.

The first public report of alleged abuse by him came from actor Anthony Rapp, who claimed that Spacey sexually abused him when Rapp was 14, in 1986.

The video was posted to Spacey's Twitter account and the tweet now has over 16,000 retweets and 45,000 likes.

Spacey apologized to Rapp, claiming not to remember the incident, but remained silent as accusations against him mushroomed. "Miss me?" Spacey's character in Netflix's "House of Cards" was killed off for the sixth and final season after he was sacked from the political drama.

"But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years", Spacey said in his statement at the time. Director Ridley Scott re-shot Spacey's scenes with his replacement, Christopher Plummer.
