The fallout facing Kevin Spacey widened Monday following an accusation that he allegedly made sexual advances on a teen boy, with Netflix pulling the plug on his hit show "House of Cards" and "deeply troubled" producers of the political thriller arriving on set to comfort cast mates.Spacey is the latest Hollywood man to be named in widening allegations of sexual harassment and abuse in entertainment, media and other industries.The two-paragraph statement -- an apology in the first for a 31-year-old alleged assault and a self-outing in the second -- struck many as an odd time for Spacey to address his sexuality or even an attempt to deflect blame.Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of the gay rights group GLAAD said in a statement that the story was really about unwanted sexual advances on Rapp not Spacey's sexuality.Rapp cited the dozens of Weinstein accusers as the reason he recounted his encounter with Spacey.While much of the sexual harassment scandal has focused on top Hollywood names such as Weinstein and Spacey, a broader discussion of treatment of women in the industry has emerged.
