I wasn’t going to do any work today. It’s Christmas Eve. But then accused sexual offender Kevin Spacey had to reemerge from the hole he’s been buried in for the last 13 months and do something genuinely unhinged and inexplicable.
Kevin Spacey, who has been accused of decades of sexual abuse and misconduct by numerous men over the last year, including cases where the victim was still a child, decided Christmas Eve was a good time to return to the public eye. He decided the best way to do so was to release a creepy, poorly made video where, in the guise of his House of Cards character Frank Underwood, he insists we need him back. He decided to publish this video on YouTube and share it on his social media accounts at almost the same exact time that Massachusetts announced it will be charging him with felony sexual assault for molesting an 18-year-old in Nantucket in 2016. It makes absolutely no sense on any level whatsoever, but then if Spacey had any sense at all he never would’ve done any of the abusive and illegal stuff he’s done over the years.
If you haven’t seen the video, don’t watch it. If you absolutely have to see it for yourself, though, here’s an embed of his tweet below. It’s a huge pile-up of some of the worst stuff on Earth: Kevin Spacey, Kevin Spacey’s terrible southern accent, Kevin Spacey’s terrible character from the always terrible show House of Cards, a rich white criminal refusing to acknowledge his crimes, an attempt at gaslighting not just an individual but an entire country into thinking it can’t live without a creep that it told to go the fuck away, etc. It sucks, and Kevin Spacey sucks, and I can’t believe I have to write this on Christmas Eve, of all days.
Let me be frank: this dude needs to go the fuck away forever.
There's no upside to this. I'm not going to say “BUT HEY at least the tweets were funny.” I mean, a lot of them were, and I've embedded the best of those below. Yeah, prime dunks on twitter are nice and all, but still, fuck Kevin Spacey for all the horrible shit that he's done and all the horrible shit that he might still do and also yes for making this embarrassing, cringeworthy video.
Okay, tweets now.
