8 people, both past and current employees on the set of “House of Cards,” have alleged sexual assault against actor Kevin Spacey.

Kevin Spacey made the work environment “toxic,” the employees told CNN, including 1 former employee who said Spacey sexually assaulted him.

The former production assistant told CNN that Spacey assaulted him when he was assigned to pick Spacey up from an offsite location and bring him to the “House of Cards” set.

Spacey was driving when he put his hands down the production assistant’s pants, he alleged. “I was in a state of shock,” he said. “He was a man in a very powerful position on the show and I was someone very low on the totem pole and on the food chain there.”

Others who spoke to CNN alleged other cases of sexual harassment.

“He would put his hands on me in weird ways. He would come in and massage my shoulders from behind or put his hands around me or touch my stomach,” a crew member said.

Netflix, responding to the story, said they had been made aware of just 1 incident, reported 5 years ago. They said:

Netflix was just made aware of one incident, five years ago, that we were informed was resolved swiftly.

On Tuesday, in collaboration with MRC, we suspended production, knowing that Kevin Spacey wasn’t scheduled to work until Wednesday.

Netflix is not aware of any other incidents involving Kevin Spacey on-set.

We continue to collaborate with MRC and other production partners to maintain a safe and respectful working environment. We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the production, and have nothing further to share at this time.

      In this world same people who take u up bring u down. These days allegations even with no truth or proof can bury u and generations to come. With all the many characters on house of cards not a single person raised an alarm. Even if it’s not to producers no one tried to complain to a co actor. Let’s these attention seekers go to sleep. We in Africa have many troubles to deal with.

    My people the US has many attention seekers. All of a sudden the whole planet has accusations don’t u all see clearly. Assault of any kind is bad, but the baffling part is no one has genuine proof, it’s all allegations no investigation has even been done to correlate facts but damage is already affecting innocent cast members on House of Cards who risks loosing their incomes due to vague claims. This nonsense talk about him being a very powerful man on set, so u wld be abused to death cause he is powerful. Even unborn children wld soon start crying they have been assaulted from the womb. Drama in America

      @Tony
      People like you are so problematic up I swear. No wonder evil continue to happen bcos we stay quiet out of fear then we are judged when we speak up too. Does it matter when, how and who? as long as evil is exposed.
      The actor who got harrased at 14 is an attention seeker right? Wickedness will never go unpunished that’s for sure. You will get away it for some time but your time is coming. Even in your grave, your generation will feel the wrath.
      The whole world is about to be bamboozled. We’ve become desensitized to the evil around us.

    Its the way their system was designed and evolved. Everything there na lawsuit upon lawsuit..if your friend comes to greet you in your house and he suddenly slips on the slippery floor, he can accuse you of not taking proper measures to avoid the fall…lawsuit and money, and people smilling to the bank
    if you know how much micheal jackson spent on top of lawsuits and settlement over accusations of child molestation, you go fear sef!!! And these are the same celebrities that have all kinds of orgies among themselves

    Where were these thoughts, when Bill Cosby was being accused. This guy always seemed like an oddball to me, I never liked him but I agree with everyone wanting a come up and desperate people wanting fame, anything is possible with these Hollywood people…

      The case of Bill cosby reminds one of how life was back in the 70s…i mean even guys like silverster Stallone did porn before they came to fame and a whole of lots of others did similar stuff. Everybody young, old, guilty, innocent went with the flow and indulged themselves…i mean look at the days of Studio54, the swinging disco era, observe that peeps from that era male/female that are alive today didnt really come out to say much about the cosby thing…becos they all did shit back then, even the so-called victims indulged with them as well…

    Una weh done! If you guys like cry till tomorrow, as many people that have been harassed and assaulted that can come out during this sting will and should continue to come out.
    Think about it… homeboy admitted to sexually harassing a 14 yr old… now some more people are alleging the same thing. As if that first offense isn’t enough for you to let him face his battles by himself… you all are here talmbout haters and enemies colluding against him. Biko who should enemies pull down if not a creeper? I honestly don’t care if 5 out of 10 of his accusers are lying… as long as the victims get justice! He deserves to be scammed!
    Lastly the accused himself didn’t even say he didn’t do it yet but your first reaction is to defend him. It’s like y’all are rapists ni? Otherwise what film has this man acted that eye has not seen before that will make you drop your morals and stand up him?
