LOS ANGELES - Kevin Spacey apologised to actor Anthony Rapp, who accused the Hollywood star of making a sexual advances on him when he was only 14-years-old.
Spacey released a statement, saying that he respected Rapp and went on to admit that he didn&39;t remember the occurrence.
He said sorry -- albeit his letter was plagued with uncertainty like "if" and "I&39;m sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years."
Spacey blamed his behaviour to have been alcohol-fuelled and inappropriate.
Then he dropped the ultimate kicker, that he was gay.

Kevin Spacey using the coming out rhetoric to distract from making sexual advances on a 14-year old is completely inexcusable and vile.— Grant Amos (@grantyy__) October 30, 2017
