Gay Talese: Kevin Spacey accuser should 'suck it up'

She said police on Nantucket island in MA are now investigating a report the young man has filed.

Heather Unruh, a former news anchor for Boston's WCVB-TV, has accused actor Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting her son at a restaurant in Nantucket in 2016.

Unruh said she "wants to see" Spacey go to jail and have the "hand of justice come down on him".

Unruh, former news anchor for ABC affiliate WCVB, said Spacey provided her 18-year-old son with numerous drinks before reaching down his trousers and grabbing his genitals. "There was no consent". Unruh and her attorney Mitchell Garabedian said it was unclear if the woman saw the alleged abuse.

Ms Unruh said embarrassment and fear meant her son did not inform authorities at the time, but that he had filed a police report following the tide of allegations against Harvey Weinstein last month. She said her family agreed to come forward now because the "climate has changed" after others have gone public with allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey and other celebrities. "But the climate in this country has changed now thanks to the courageous women and all sexual abuse victims who have come forward with their accuations against Harvey Weinstein and other sexual abusers". That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention from what you really are: a sexual predator.

"I feel so sad, and I hate that actor that ruined this guy's career", Talese told Vanity Fair, presumably referring to Anthony Rapp, who claimed that a 26-year-old Spacey tried to seduce the then-14-year-old actor in 1986.

Twitter Goes Through With It: You're All Getting 280 Damn Characters
Twitter users also expressed concerns the higher count goes against the spirit of the service and its 140-character concept. There has been a wave of criticism of the move to 280 characters, with some tweeters claiming they will leave the site.

Spacey issued a statement claiming he did not recall the incident, but he apologized for what he said would have been "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior". Time the dominoes fell'.

The 58-year-old "House of Cards" star had previously recorded a segment for the special that will celebrate "The Carol Burnett" show. She said watching Spacey host the Tony Awards this past year and be celebrated as a man and actor was "hurtful".

Since then, other allegations have surfaced and the Oscar-winning star said he is seeking "evaluation and treatment". I was a Kevin Spacey fan until he assaulted a loved one. Garabedian said he is conducting his own investigation.

She also spoke directly to Spacey.

Mr Spacey and surrogates have not specifically addressed any other allegations since Mr Spacey responded to Mr Rapp's accusation.

Harry Dreyfuss, the son of actor Richard Dreyfuss, also has said that Spacey groped him in 2008 when he was 18 while his father was rehearsing a play at Spacey's London apartment.
