With A Final Push, It’s “Time The Dominoes Fell,” Says Latest Hollywood Whistle-blower
UPDATE 2: Another Spacey Rape Victim Comes Forward
After Rapp’s public statement, a man who was friendly with a member of the New York staff approached the magazine to talk about Spacey. At the age of 14, he says, he began a sexual relationship with the actor, who was then 24, that ended with what he describes as an attempted rape. The man is now a 48-year-old artist living on the East Coast with a long-term partner, and he wishes to remain anonymous. “I have worked really hard to have a nice life and feel safe, and I’m not giving that up for him,” he told me, sitting outside on a park bench. “I don’t want them to be able to find their way back to me.”
If you were lucky, you heard it here WEEKS ago, but now our story has been corroborated and the victim has come forward:
He was trying to seduce me,” Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed News. “I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.” Meanwhile, Spacey apologized, saying he’s choosing “now to live as a gay man.”
Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp has accused Kevin Spacey of making a pass toward him when he was only 14. In response, Spacey tweeted his “sincerest apology” late Sunday night and came out as a gay man.
Rapp told BuzzFeed News in a story that posted online Sunday that the two met in 1986 when both were appearing in Broadway shows (Rapp in Precious Sons and Spacey in Long Day’s Journey Into Night). One night, Spacey invited Rapp to his apartment for a party; later, Rapp says, he found himself bored and watching TV in Spacey’s bedroom when he realized that he was the only one left in the apartment with the actor, who was 26 at the time.
Former television personality Heather Unruh has come forward to name the next in what is becoming a long list of celebrities that used their position of power to pressure and manipulate those in weaker footing into a casting couch position. In a tweet published yesterday, she said she had become “emboldened” by the Weinstein scandal and is choosing to speak out about the time that a celebrity “assaulted a loved one.” In a closing sentence we can all agree on she said that it was “time the dominoes fell.”
Kevin Spacey was the celebrity in question this time. Take a look:

The victim that Heather refers to hasn’t been named directly yet and she’s not planning on talking until the he or she is ready and makes a decision about how to do so. The gender of the victim is uncertain since Spacey’s sexuality is anything but clear. In 2017, Spacey indicated that he is gay but he is also married.
It means I have respect for the person involved who is considering all options before going public. Big implications, wouldn't you agree?

This is 100% true… this person is considering all options about speaking out– not an easy decision.

The sexuality of Spacey has been in question ever since, despite having a wife, he came out at the Tony Awards:
The 57-year-old thespian has been followed by gay rumors for much of his A-list run. He’s never outright confirmed or denied them, but he used his hosting platform to indirectly acknowledge them. If he had something to reveal, he never got around to spilling. Instead, he played the rumors – and by extension, his sexuality – for laughs.
This tidbit of information makes his pool of victims that much broader. His victim could be of any age and any gender.
Is Unruh Reliable? Her Track Record Speaks For Itself. This Is An Issue Close To Home For Her:
In 2016, Heather Unruh departed from her network in an exit that was unexpected and unexplained. She would later again take to the airwaves in an interview and while she didn’t explain the exact reason for her departure, she did hint at it:
“Probably the biggest change I have witnessed is how people get their news. Young people now expect their news in real time, relying on mobile devices rather than television,” Unruh says. “That has made the fight for viewers all the more competitive. As a result, women are ‘encouraged’ to dress more provocatively than I feel is appropriate for delivering news.”
Unruh worked in the media for 27 years. She’s no spring chicken made bashful from a momentary loss of innocence. Say what you will about her politics but her voice is one of authority when it comes to peeling back the curtain that obscures the behind-the-scenes lives of broadcast journalists. Her interview continued:
“In the last decade, women have been strongly encouraged to dress in a way that I didn’t feel comfortable with, nor do I think it’s appropriate for women going on the air to deliver the news as a public service to be dressed like they’re at a cocktail party,” she said. “That’s what news has become and it’s not unique to Boston. Wearing a sleeveless dress on a day when it’s minus 20 degrees outside is ridiculous.”
There’s a lot more to this story that needs to come out before we can understand the nature of the accusations. Kevin Spacey has a wife, but he might be gay according to his own admission. His victim could be male or female. One thing is certain, this story doesn’t stop with Spacey and the elites among the intelligentsia need to be universally scrutinized. Power must be held accountable so that the deployment thereof is exercised within the acceptable boundaries that society has set forth. The unforgivable sin of exploitation must be rooted out ruthlessly and without mercy.
There’s no privileged class in these states and those that seek to form one need to be brought to justice.
