After Kevin Spacey, 58, shared a bizarre apology to Anthony Rapp, 46, celebrities took to Twitter to bash the aging actor for his insensitive comment. As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the Rent star claimed Spacey made sexual advances towards him at a party when he was just 14. To that, Spacey said that he was sorry, explaining that he was probably drunk and adding that he is in fact a gay man. Click through to see what the enraged Hollywood crowd had to say to that!
Rose McGowan – who was one of the first A-listers to speak out against Harvey Weinstein – wrote on Twitter following the scandal, "Dear fellow media: Keep focus on #AnthonyRapp BE THE VICTIM'S VOICE. Help us level the playing field." In another tweet, she added, "Bye bye, Spacey goodbye, it's your turn to cry, that's why we've gotta say goodbye. #ROSEARMY."
Added comedian Wanda Sykes: "No no no no no! You do not get to 'choose' to hide under the rainbow! Kick rocks!"
Sykes' comments came after Spacey decided to come out as gay on social media after stating that he may or may have not made sexual advances towards teenage Rapp in 1986.
Said Billy Eichner, "Kevin Spacey has just invented something that has never existed before: a bad time to come out."
"Kevin Spacey's comment was wrong on so many levels," said Larry Wilmore.
In his statement, Spacey also blamed his alleged actions on being drunk and out of control at a party.
Said Richard Marx, "Hey @KevinSpacey most of us have been extremely drunk in our lives & still not tried to have sex with a 14 yr old. It's disgusting. Period."
"Spacey trying to hide behind coming out & offering drunkenness as an excuse for jumping on a child shows his breathtaking arrogance," agreed Louise Brealey.
"Can't believe I'm saying this in 2017 but here it goes: Being gay is not an excuse for trying to molest children," wrote The Daily Show writer Travon Free.
