‘House of Cards’ Creator Beau Willimon Calls Spacey Allegations ‘Deeply Troubling,’ Supports Anthony Rapp

Beau Willimon, the creator of the US Kevin Spacey-led House of Cards, issued a statement Monday morning on Twitter in response to a BuzzFeed article in which actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making a drunken sexual advance on him when he was 14 years old.

In the statement, Willimon called the allegations “deeply troubling,” and offered support to Rapp.

“I feel for Mr. Rapp and I support his courage,” Willimon said.

On Sunday night, Spacey responded to the allegations against him by coming out of the closet on Twitter.
