Kevin Spacey was called out by actor Anthony Rapp as being a sexual predator. Rapp accused Spacey of making sexual advances toward him 30 years ago when he was just 14. Spacey put out a statement apologizing for his actions, but he also use the time to come out as gay.
Celebs and other people took to Twitter to bash Spacey for trying to take the subject off of him being a sexual predator, even worse a child sex predator.
Kevin Spacey has just invented something that has never existed before: a bad time to come out.

I’m not interested in Kevin Spacey being gay. I’m curious as to why we’re conflating sexuality w/ the molestation of a minor. Stay on topic

Nope to Kevin Spacey’s statement. Nope. There’s no amount of drunk or closeted that excuses or explains away assaulting a 14-year-old child.

Nothing wrong w/ being gay. But there’s a lot wrong w/ being a pedophile. Kevin Spacey using one as an excuse for the other is BS. Fuck him.
