Netflix fires Kevin Spacey from ‘House of Cards’ after sexual assault allegations

Netflix says Kevin Spacey is out at “House of Cards” after a series of allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

In a statement Friday night, Netflix said it’s cutting all ties with Spacey, and will not be involved with any further production of “House of Cards” that includes him.

The company says it will evaluate whether the show will continue without him. Spacey has been the star of the show about political intrigue in Washington since it debuted in 2013.

CNN reported that eight current or former “House of Cards” workers claim that Spacey made the production a “toxic” workplace and one ex-employee alleges the actor sexually assaulted him.

His publicist said earlier this week that Spacey is “taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment.”
