11 Stars Accused of Sexual Misconduct Before Hollywood's Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Spacey's Emmy honor is rescinded, Netflix halt production of his series "House of Cards," his acting class has been pulled and his brother has responded.

The fallout in Hollywood continues for Kevin Spacey after he was accused of making a pass at Anthony Rapp when the "Star Trek" actor was just 14.

Rapp told Buzzfeed that Spacey befriended him in the late '80s while they were both performing on Broadway. The actor recalled Spacey inviting him to a party at his apartment, putting him on his bed, climbing on top of him and trying to molest him before Rapp was able to push him off and leave.

Spacey responded to the allegation on Twitter Sunday by saying he doesn't remember the encounter, but he "owes him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior." He also used the opportunity to come out as a gay man, a move which also sparked serious backlash.

Here are the latest developments as of Tuesday:

'House of Cards' on Hold

Netflix has halted production on the upcoming season of "House of Cards" in light of the allegations.

"MRC and Netflix have decided to suspend production on 'House of Cards' season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew," Netflix said.

The statement follows the announcement that the upcoming season will also be its last.

But Netflix and Media Rights Capital are also reportedly brainstorming potential spinoff ideas to continue the franchise without Spacey's involvement. One idea that has been thrown around would focus on Michael Kelly's Doug Stamper.

Spacey's Emmy Honor Rescinded

The International Emmy Awards tweeted Monday that they will no longer honor Spacey at the 2017 International Emmys.

Spacey's Online Acting Class Pulled

MasterClass shut down Spacey's $90 acting class almost two years after he began teaching on the online site.

"In light of recent events, MasterClass has closed enrollment in Kevin Spacey's online class," the company said.

The course included 28 video lessons with tutorials on how to "stand out in the casting room," give a perfect monologue and leave a lasting impression. Spacey also had a 47-page workbook and select members had heir performances critiqued by the actor himself.

Although the course is no longer promoted on the site's homepage and students can no longer join, the course description is still listed on the website.
