Ask him about the gay guy he was dating that he treated so badly he committed suicide after. He's a dick.

Anthony Rapp used to entertain underage boys in his dressing room during his time in Rent. He'd also befriend them online and tell them- if you're ever in NY, let me know. I'll set up tickets for you and your family and then you can come visit me afterwards backstage. Hypocrite city.

Crazy isn't it, R23. I mean, people have speculated for years here on DL that Spacey was a creep, now all of a sudden it's Rapp's fault? Besides, Rapp told this story to The Advocate in 2001, it's not even new. As far as the people tweeting him shit, he's not revealing anything about their identity that the general public couldn't have seen by reading through the threads, and his amping their tweets? Well good. I hate cowards that hide behind the 'net. If they can dish it out they should take it as well.

Why would a 14 yr old be allowed to remain as the last guest at a late night adult house party? Where were his parents and why didn't they wonder where he was at such late hours? Rapp was also a young gayling in the NYC theater community, he was likely at least a little more savvy then most of us. I don't doubt his encounter is mostly true yet how was he allowed to be in the situation?

If he indeed managed to be at the party without his parents knowing then even at fourteen he has to be accountable for making such a poor decision. Moreso, since he seemed to be aghast at what he'd gotten himself into.

Can't stand mealy-mouth ninny Rapp. Nothing to do with Spacey the Sleaze. Rapp has always struck me as minimally talented and maximally entitled. Besides "Rent," in which he played an entitled hipster (i.e., a slightly more interesting version of himself), has he ever done anything to warrant a career in the entertainment industry that so many genuinely talented people can't break into? (And no, that doesn't include me, so don't cry jealousy, bitches.) Worst of all, he's always seemed like the PC Police to me, and I do mean long before his Spacey allegations ever came to the table. At least Spacey knows he's an asshole; Rapp casts himself as a plaster saint, pun intended.

Actually, Spacey didn't admit it. He said he didn't remember it, but apologized, anyway. That's not a defense of Spacey, just the facts, though I'm sure some of you more unhinged ghouls haunting the DL will point and shriek PEDO, because it gives you something to do to break up the monotony.

R29, the Moore victims are girls, not gay boys with the expected experience of Rapp being a very big city kid on Broadway. I see a difference, even though 14 yr olds make lousy decisions all the time they still must take accountability, albeit not full accountability for those decisions. Even the law sees that. And again, where the hell were his parents and why was he allowed to be there at that late hour in the first place? He also reported that he left on his own. He had no curfew? Assuming they did allow him to go why would parents let their child be in the middle of NYC in the middle of the night by themself?

Oh brother! Some of you are really acting like snowflakes by insisting that Rapp is some delicate flower that had no idea of the mess he'd gotten into. Jesus Christ R44 and 45 of course boys and men can be raped. Stop trying to interject your SJW views. If you could use some critical thinking you might understand the situation in its entirety. Spacey should have used adult judgement, I would never say he did. I'm questioning the actions of Rapp and his parents. I was 14 once, and likely from a much less sophisticated place than Rapp, and my parents wouldn't have allowed me to be at that party, out at that hour, and with no discernible plan on how to return home.

Get off your horse and see that while teenage brains are wired to take risks Rapp is a NYC gay broadway kid who was probably more experienced than his peers. Maybe thats why his parents didn't provide direction or supervision? Regardless he and his parents put him in a risky situation with more than expected results.

Consider one more thing...once he was safely out of Spacey's apartment, was he now completely safe in NYC at that hour? Who does say is entirely to blame for that?

No, you're right, my eyes landed on that in a post before it. He was not hiding under covers, he was watching TV but somehow drunk Kevin picked him up and carried him over the threshold and then fell on him in the bed, Rapp slid his way out from under him and that was that. For all we know, they laughed about it and went on with their lives for 30 years until it became fashionable to yack to the press about perceived slights.

Or maybe Kevin fell asleep and didn't remember a moment of it -- but it might've been nice to talk about it with him first instead of the press. But, hey, what fun would that be. And there's no such thing as bad press especially when folks will praise you for being "brave".

From the link at R86;

[quote] To The Advocate, Steele clarified that he may have known of Rapp’s encounter with Spacey “years before we put it in the magazine,” as early as 1994. Many others did as well, he said. BuzzFeed confirmed that Rapp had told friends and partners as early as 1990.

Rapp didn't make this up in 2017 to get back at Spacey as some people are implying, AND, it was Unruh back in early October who was the first to speak publicly about Spacey this year, not Rapp. HoC was ending anyway, so Rapp's story did not put anyone out of work. Are you new here, R104? The rumors about Spacey have existed here for years now.

I believe Rapp was a victim. His parents should be ashamed for allowing him to be in that situation in the first place. Spacey is a well known perv.

At the same time Rapp could be smarmy and milking this for publicity.

1 - Enough with the bierasure. Rapp identifies as bisexual, not gay. 2 - Rapp's account is buttressed by the numerous other cases of assault levied at Spacey. 3 - Spacey is a perv who tried to use coming out as gay as a smokescreen to his predatory behaviour.

The story of Spacey's female victim was an odd one. She went to his apartment and rejected him, and he gave her the cold shoulder afterwards, and his ignoring her caused her distress, that's the gist of it, correct?

You guys are either very generous or very naive, I can't decide which.

If you really think it was for the good of society, you don't know actors. I guarantee Rapp would've been front and center in Harvey's hotel suite, ala Ashley Judd, had Harvey remotely swinged that way. And then Rapp would've reported THAT too. Oh, the humanity.

R139, read Rapp's original account from The Advocate in 2001. If I remember correctly, he didn't even bring up the subject of Spacey. Whatever Rapp's intentions are, what does it really matter anyway? Spacey's a creep, we've known that here for a long time, the rest of the media is only catching up to what DL has talked about for ages.

I believe not much happened in the first place, even as told by Rapp, just as not much happened to Judd in Harvey's suite. But I also believe that it's stupid to just believe blindly everything one is told without input from the other side and, even then, one must accept that we aren't getting the tone, before during and after whatever happened. I have a healthy cynicism to all of this stuff since so many lives have been ruined by false allegations, be it black football players accused of rape or little old ladies accused of devil worship at McMartin Pre-school. Or Richard Jewell.

Did it happen to Rapp? Something did, I'm sure, but nothing that warrants this reaction. At the very least, I am not enjoying watching the downfall of one of our best actors -- and, yeah, it all reminds me of back in the day when gay frat brothers would be threatened with being exposed and it was always some closet case doing the accusing, not the big redneck you might expect it from.

It is one of my favorite memories but can I turn it into "one of them stories" if I want to? If I just add the three words, "I was uncomfortable"? I mean, I was a little with all eyes on me but I was also thrilled. And not remotely a victim though I could certainly play that role with a lot of people if I were so inclined (or nuts).

It may be different if Rapp was the only person complaining about Spacey, but he's not. He obviously didn't want Spacey to lie on top of him, and even if he did, that's a moot point. He was 14, so Spacey's behavior was completely inappropriate. Why should a predator be protected just because he's in the closet? If this incident with Rapp were a one off thing, then I'm sure people would look past it but unfortunately it wasn't. Spacey took down himself by his actions, no one else is to blame here.

Is it possible to have a nuanced discussion on this matter without the trolls and the stans drowning everybody out? What Spacey did was absolutely wrong, possibly even criminal, and he deserved to be called out on it years ago. However, Rapp isn't some gay saint out to save all those little 14-year-old Broadway gaylings from the evil sexual predations of closeted gay chickenhawks. First, Rapp has waffled on his sexuality over the years - from the ambiguous "queer"/"no labels" BS of the early 90s when he first made headlines. It was cringeworthy at times reading about the lengths he would go to in order to avoid the gay label. After his career soured post-Rent, he published a yawn-inducing autobiography that makes it clear that he is most definitely gay and hasn't had sex with or a relationship with a woman since college yet he still clings to various labels like bisexual, fluid, or even a kinsey 4 depending on the interview. Out finally got to to admit he is basically gay a few years ago but then backtracked when he was promoting some silly play where bisexually was at issue - that is when the laughable "kinsey 4" claims was made! Second, Rapp is just not that good of an actor and has coasted off his Rent fame ever since but now that he hopes to make a come back with Star Trek, suddenly he is the poster boy for gay rights. The Spacey revelation was most certainly motivated in part as a PR stunt to drum up support for his lackluster role. Wilson Cruz is ten times the actor Rapp is and has been 100% out of closet for decades now - none of this mamby pamby "queer/bi" shit...

Point being - taking that closet case predator Spacey down was great but I wish it was someone besides that excrible Rapp...

Spacey is a sociopath, a predator, has MANY victims, and deserved what he got.

That said - I wouldn't be surprised if Rapp knew what he was doing that night and wanted some action. I think what might have happened is Spacey threw him out and probably said some vile and hateful stuff that scarred Rapp for life.

Remember, Kevin wants to be the aggresor. He wants to take something from his victims that they don't want to give. When they're young, like Rapp was, it's about manipulating their emotions. When they're older, it's probably more about humiliation. The straight actor desperate for a break, ultimately willing to do anything even if it's distasteful to them.

A kid like Rapp throwing themselves at Spacey would be the ultimate turn off for him, and I can see him responding savagely cruel, if for no other reason to re-establish that he is in control.

by Anonymousreply 179January 1, 2018 3:48 PM

Even if Rapp did throw himself at Spacey, given his young age, Spacey still would have been manipulating his emotions and taking something from him R179. Rapp's account of the events hasn't changed since 2002, and even The Advocate interviewer found people that confirmed the story going back as far as the early 90s, so although I get what you're saying, I believe Rapp's story. I do believe you're right that Spacey probably said awful things to Rapp after he pushed him off/rejected him.
