Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey was charged with felony assault for groping the genitals of a teenage bus boy.
On Monday, January 7, the previous House of Cards star appeared in Massachusetts courtroom for a listening to.
Creepily, he remained completely silent — even when it got here time to enter a plea.
Kevin Spacey appeared in courtroom to handle costs over the 2016 Nantucket Island incident.
He is alleged to have smiled as he entered the constructing.
The reviled 59-year-old actor reportedly didn’t say a phrase in courtroom, not even to enter a plea.
In accordance with Massachusetts regulation, a “not guilty” plea was entered on his behalf.
After the listening to, Spacey reportedly have left with out talking.
Cape and Islands Assistant District Attorney requested that Spacey be barred from contacting the 18-year-old sufferer or his household.
The choose agreed to this request.
Spacey’s time in courtrooms is just starting, as this was a easy plea listening to.
He should return for his first preliminary listening to on March four of this 12 months.
We do not know what kind of authorized technique he’ll try in his personal protection.
Spacey was considered one of many males accused in #MeToo tales.
Star Trek Discovery actor Anthony Rapp got here ahead and revealed that Spacey had behaved inappropriately with him when he was solely 14 years previous.
Rumors and accusations had adopted Spacey for many years, and this was lastly sufficient to derail Spacey’s profession.
Spacey, nonetheless, believes that he has multitudes of secret supporters who yearn for his return to the large display screen.
He believes that these folks both don’t care concerning the accusations towards him or don’t imagine them.
On the identical day that Spacey was charged for felony assault, he launched a deeply creepy video.
“I know what you want,” Spacey instructed his YouTube viewers in a chilling video whereas appearing as his former House of Cards character.
“Oh sure, they may have tried to separate us but what we have is too strong, it’s too powerful,” he mentioned.
Many famous that his phrases appeared like what a sexual predator would possibly say to a sufferer whom he had groomed.
“After all, we shared everything, you and I,” Spacey continued. “I told you my deepest darkest secrets.”
“I showed you exactly what people are capable of,” he mentioned. “I shocked you with my honesty.”
“But mostly, I challenged you and made you think, and you trusted me even though you knew you shouldn’t.”
Read the room, you creep.
“So, we’re not done no matter what anybody says,” Spacey continued. “And besides, I know what you want. You want me back.”
In the context of the accusations towards him, that is bone-chilling.
“You wouldn’t rush to judgments with out details, would you? Did you? No, not you,” he says.
Nobody rushed to judgments on Spacey. If something, they dragged their heels for years.
“You’re smarter than that,” he told his (hopefully imaginary) fans. “Anyway, all this presumption made for such an unsatisfying ending.”
“And to think, it could have been such a memorable sendoff,” he lamented. “I mean, if you and I learned nothing else these past years, it’s that in life and art.”
“Nothing should be off the table,” he mentioned creepily. “We weren’t afraid, not of what we said, not of what we did and we’re still not afraid.”
“Because I can promise you this, if I didn’t pay the price for the things we both know I did do,” he introduced. “I’m certainly not gonna pay the price for I didn’t do.”
Again, that is simply … deeply unsettling and never giving his viewers the emotions that he had hoped to elicit.
“Oh of course, they’re gonna say I’m being disrespectful not playing by the rules,” he mentioned of his unwelcome comeback to the general public eye.
“Like I ever played by anyone’s rules before,” he concluded. “I never did and you loved it.”
Let’s hope that the courtroom can do to Spacey what getting fired from his personal present didn’t do: educate him to close up.
