Morrissey has said the Hollywood sex scandals surrounding Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein have become "a play" - and he's questioning the definition of sexual misconduct in the modern world.

As reported by The AV Club, in an interview with German outlet Der Spiegel, The Smiths man said: "I think that's ridiculous".

Rocker Morrissey can not believe Kevin Spacey has been dumped from a completed movie, insisting the Oscar victor has been “needlessly attacked” following allegations of sexual misconduct.

The announcement came after actor Anthony Rapp claimed that Spacey put him on a bed and climbed on top of him after a party in 1986 when he was 14.

Morrissey believes one of Kevin Spacey's accusers made up his account of being sexually harassed by the Oscar-winning actor when he was aged 14.

Cutler, with three interceptions in the first half, left the game with concussion symptoms, and Moore filled in admirably. Miami promoted former Michigan RB De'Veon Smith from the practice squad to replace Maualuga and made him inactive.

"One wonders if the boy did not know what would happen". One wonders if the boy did not know what would happen. "I do not know about you, but in my youth I have never been in situations like this", he continued.

Go back to sleep Moz, you're out of touch and we don't need another victim blamer in music. "But if the incident had gone very very well, and they had enjoyed it and it had led to an incredible career, they wouldn't mention it. To me it seems as if Spacey was needlessly attacked".

Morrissey made it clear that he condemns sexual abuse in any form. Weinstein + Spacey unfairly attacked?

Film producer Harvey Weinstein had a list of 91 people from the film industry who he wanted to target to find out what they knew about claims of sexual misconduct on his part, and whether they planned to go public, The Observer had uncovered. Afterward, they feel embarrassed, or they do not like it. A rough translation of his interview includes some extremely distasteful thoughts on sexual assault: "Of course, there are extreme cases, rape is disgusting, every physical attack is repulsive". And then they turn it around and say: "I was attacked, I was surprised".

"Anyone who has ever said to someone else, "I like you", is suddenly being charged with sexual harassment". But in very many of these cases, you look at the circumstances and you think that the person, who is called a victim, is simply disappointed'. If you go through the history, nearly everyone is guilty of sleeping with minors.
