Kevin Spacey Will No Longer Be Honored At The 2017 International Emmys

The fallout continues…

As we reported, Anthony Rapp told Buzzfeed Kevin Spacey made an unwanted sexual advance towards him in 1986 when the Rent actor was only 14 years old.

The House Of Cards star issued a heavily criticized apology, where he says he does “not remember the encounter,” as it “would have been over 30 years ago.” He also used the opportunity to come out as gay.

Unfortunately for Spacey, the backlash is far from over.

On Monday, the International Emmy Awards announced on Twitter they are no longer honoring the American Beauty thespian with the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award.

They wrote:

The ceremony is scheduled for November 20, 2017.
