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't remember the occurrence.
He said sorry -- albeit his letter was plagued with uncertainty like "if" and "I'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
