76,000 people loved Kevin Spacey's "don't hate me because I'm a gay man who's coming out" tweet.
76,000 people loved it which only proves there are a lot of people easily fooled or blinded by celebrity.
However, on a positive note, let's take a look at some folks who held his feet to the fire. Folks like Chicago Mike, Eliza, Tyler, Jocelyn, and more. Good on you, ladies and gentlemen. This is how Citizen Journalism starts.
Kevin: I maybe a child predator but only when I drink. Oh I'm also gay so none of that child stuff matters. There fixed your statement Kevin— Chicago Mike 2.0 🍩 (@ChicagoMGD_SD) October 30, 2017
You don't remember the incident but remember being drunk?— Elizaeverafter (@Elizaeverafter) October 30, 2017
Enough people knew about Kevin Spacey being a creep that Family Guy did a bit about it. https://t.co/owhqHEa8u5— 🇺🇸Haunted👻Anson🇺🇸 (@Ans0nJackdr3w) October 30, 2017
These comments praising Kevin Spacey are just disgusting. What is wrong with you people excusing this behavior. WTF— Katica (@GOPPollAnalyst) October 30, 2017
OMG people think it's brave admitting that you assaulted a child!? This is insane!— Tyler DiP (@TDiP7) October 30, 2017
Couldn't care less that you made sexual advances on a 14 yr old, your "talent" supersedes that fact. Seriously?!?! pic.twitter.com/VBpXQ0HDbn— Jocelyn (@psychmajor_mom) October 30, 2017
Nobody cares if you're gay, what we care about is that you allegedly sexually assaulted a young boy, you imbecile.— The Columbia Bugle (@ColumbiaBugle) October 30, 2017
Mark Kennedy wrote a thorough piece for AP you will want to read here. Kennedy reported:
Rapp cited the dozens of Weinstein accusers as the reason he recounted his encounter with Spacey.
“I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me,” he wrote on Twitter. Rapp, who starred on Broadway in “Rent,” currently stars in “Star Trek: Discovery.”
Many Hollywood figures came to Rapp’s side, including fellow “Discovery” co-star Wilson Cruz and Rose McGowan, one of the leading voices against sexual harassment in Hollywood, who said of Spacey: “It’s your turn to cry.”
And Spacey's International Emmy Award was revoked. Spacey is best buds with Bill Clinton.
I almost feel like we're in a Stieg Larsson book. Clinton. Spacey. Cosby. Weinstein. And more rich and powerful predators coming out of the woodwork, whose conspiracy of terror is supported by the likes of Whoop-Do-Do, BahBah WahWah, and Ashwee Yudd.
Much support for those speaking out.
