Seems like Kevin Spacey just can’t catch a break. The more he tries to run away from controversy, the more controversy likes to latch on to him. In a recent twist to the Kevin Spacey story, four separate sexual assault charges have put him dead centre in the public spotlight. The 62 year old actor has finally responded. He has decided to ‘voluntarily appear’ in the UK Court where the legal proceedings are to take place. The House of Cards and Usual Suspects star is confident he can prove his innocence despite facing overwhelming odds. His recent statement has sparked rampart debate amongst movie fans, who are calling out society on its double standards. Amber Heard fans in particular have taken to Twitter to express the hypocrisy of society.

They claim people would call out a woman, call her guilty even before the verdict, but won’t do the same for an alleged sexual predator.

While answering to Good Morning America, Kevin Spacey gave his statement and his official reaction to the sexual assault allegations thrown his way.

The Good Morning America statement that Kevin Spacey gave states:

“I very much appreciate the Crown Prosecution Service’s statement in which they carefully reminded the media and the public that I am entitled to a fair trial, and innocent until proven otherwise. While I am disappointed with their decision to move forward, I will voluntarily appear in the U.K. as soon as can be arranged and defend myself against these charges, which I am confident will prove my innocence.”

Although the four separate allegations have been legally authorised, Kevin Spacey cannot be arrested until he is formally charged under the jurisdiction of England or Wales.

Crown Prosecution Service Special Crime Division Head – Rosemary Ainslie, claims the decision to authorise the sexual assault charges came after conclusive “evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation” came to light. Ainslie added that Kevin Spacey has all the rights that are advocated to a citizen of the state.

“[The Agency] reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr. Spacey are active and that he has the right to a fair trial.”

Amber Heard Fans Respond To Kevin Spacey Sexual Assault Charges

Meanwhile Amber Heard fans are going on the Warpath right now. They are calling out all fans who supported Johnny Depp throughout the trial and trolled Amber Heard. But the same fans are now silent on Kevin Spacey. While Spacey, just like Amber Heard, is innocent until proven guilty, Heard was on the receiving end while the fans are turning a blind eye to Kevin Spacey. These are their words, not ours:

The tweets go on and on. Case in point – these are fan reactions, not ours. In no way do we support any of the fan campaigns in question. Animated Times just wants the world to be happier and more peaceful.

Having said that, we would like to add that these fan reactions do make a point. Public opinion is vehemently against Amber Heard and stands with Johnny Depp. But given Kevin Spacey’s past actions, the public should be ostracizing him as well. Abuse of any form is not okay and people like Kevin Spacey prove it every day.
