Gay Talese thinks Kevin Spacey's accusers should 'suck it up'

Gay Talese thinks Kevin Spacey's accusers should 'suck it up'

A former Boston TV news anchor is about to hold a news conference, pointing the finger at Kevin Spacey for allegedly sexually assaulting an 18-year-old family member.

Heather Unruh told reporters Wednesday that the actor stuck his hand down her son's trousers and grabbed his genitals while the two of them were at the Club Car Restaurant in July 2016.

Garabedian said Unruh's "brave" son, now a college sophomore, was 18 when the alleged assault occurred.

Spacey has not commented on Unruh's claim.

Unruh said her son "is committed to doing what he can to stop Kevin Spacey from victimizing anyone else". "Reports of sexual assaults are confidential under Massachusetts General Law", a spokesperson for the police department said.

Talese went on to make the shocking "suck it up" remark about the Hollywood star's alleged victims - some who claim to have been as young as 14-years-old when Spacey made sexual advances toward them. Police are now conducting an investigation, she said.

The press conference was announced in a press release from the office of lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, who has represented sexual abuse victims of Catholic priests.

"Whether he was over 21 or not, Kevin Spacey had no right to sexually assault him", she said.

She also spoke directly to Spacey.

"To Kevin Spacey I want to say this: Shame on you for what you did to my son and shame on you for using your apology to Anthony Rapp to come out as a gay man", said Unruh on Wednesday. He has tried his best to deal with it. "That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention away from what you really are: a sexual predator".

Spacey has been accused by a number of men of sexual misconduct on the set of the Netflix show, "House of Cards", and elsewhere.

More than two weeks later, after several other allegations against Spacey were made public, Unruh tweeted, ' The dominoes are falling.

In response, the Los Gatos-based streaming service cut ties with Spacey, who starred in and executive produced the show for six seasons.

"Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment", said the representative in a statement.
