Kevin Spacey's Appearance Cut From 'Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary Special'

Sympathetic Gay Talese Wants to Profile Kevin Spacey

A former news anchor has accused actor Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting her 18-year-old son, leaving him traumatised.

"Shame on you for what you did to my son", Unruh said at Wednesday's news conference.

Unruh appealed to the woman to come forward. Unruh said the touching was non-consensual.

Unruh said her son didn't report the assault at the time because he was embarrassed and scared.

Kevin Spacey's appearance in the CBS "Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary Special" has been cut following the flood of sexual harassment and assault allegations against him, Entertainment Weekly confirmed Wednesday. Spacey's representatives did not reply to a request for comment on the allegations in CNN's report. A publicist said last week that Spacey is "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

Unruh said her son did not report Spacey immediately because of "embarrassment and fear". "Obviously she had seen something and she knew that he was not". Nantucket Chief of Police William Pittman said he will not comment on or confirm any investigation regarding Spacey or any other possible sexual assault investigation citing MA law regarding victim privacy.

Cape & Islands Assistant District Attorney Tara Miltimore said a person has provided information to police about an "indecent assault and battery" and that authorities are waiting to hear from the person's attorney.

"Whether he was over 21 or not, Kevin Spacey had no right to sexually assault him", she said.


Unruh said she has long wanted to say something about what Spacey allegedly did to her son. She said a concerned woman noticed that her son was emotionally disturbed and urged him to "run".

Kevin Spacey finally has someone sticking up for him in public, though the thoughts expressed by 85-year-old author Gay Talese aren't going over well.

The claims come amid a wave of other sexual harassment and assault allegations against powerful men in Hollywood, including Oscar-winning mogul Harvey Weinstein, screenwriter James Toback and film director Brett Ratner.

Netflix late week dropped Spacey, its star actor on hit series "House of Cards" whose career is in free-fall over spiraling assault accusations.

The streaming giant also announced it would cancel the Gore Vidal biopic, Gore, which Spacey was set to star in. Rapp said that he went to watch TV in Spacey's bedroom until after midnight because he became bored. Rapp was 14 years old while Spacey was 26 both performing on Broadway together at the time.

"I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago", he said in a Twitter statement.

Harry Dreyfuss, the son of actor Richard Dreyfuss, also has said that Spacey groped him in 2008 when he was 18 while his father was rehearsing a play at Spacey's London apartment.
