The Harvey Weinstein scandal has blown the lid off of Hollywood's shameful pedophile problem.
As more women come forward with allegations of sexual harassment, the lid is also being lifted on that other Hollywood casting couch problem.
For decades a pedophile ring made up of Hollywood's most powerful men have allegedly raped boys in an unspoken rite of passage for young Hollywood actors.
Oscar winner Kevin Spacey is the first of the A-list pedophiles to be dragged into the harsh glare of negative publicity. And he responded in typical Hollywood fashion by coming out as gay -- one of the left's protected classes.
Actor Anthony Rapp was only 14 years old when he alleges that Spacey, then 26, molested him after a party at his home. Rapp says times were different back then, and he often traveled to Hollywood alone without his mother or an adult chaperone.
The Star Trek Discovery actor recalled the disturbing encounter with Spacey in an interview with BuzzFeed News on Sunday.
He said he and Spacey were working on Broadway in 1986 when the House of Cards star invited him to a private party at his apartment.
After the guests left, Rapp said Spacey picked him up, carried him like a new bride to a bedroom and placed him on a bed.
"I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually," Rapp told Buzzfeed.
"My stomach churns. I still to this day can't wrap my head around so many aspects of it. It's just deeply confusing to me."
Rapp, who is openly gay, said he's hopeful that his story can make a difference.
Spacey, now 58, quickly responded to the allegations on Twitter.com. He apologized to Rapp, saying he was "horrified" by his own drunken behavior, which he conveniently can't remember.
In a series of tweets, Spacey claimed he was drunk and he didn't recall the encounter 31 years ago. But he was quick to claim victim status -- even as he warned his Twitter followers that there will be more stories to come out about his predatory behavior with boys.
"I know that there are other stories out there about me and that some have been fueled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy," he tweeted on Sunday night.
"As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose to live as a gay man."
The Internet exploded in waves of joy as gays everywhere celebrated Spacey's coming out story while shoving aside his deviant behavior.
Yes, there will be more pedo stories to come about Spacey, but who cares: he's gay.
Don't expect Spacey to lose his job or be run out of town like what happened to Weinstein. Maybe Weinstein should have come out as gay.
Now that pedophilia has a famous face, California Governor Jerry Brown will probably sign legislation making pedophilia a misdemeanor.
Ellen DeGeneres will probably book Spacey for her show, and heap praise on him for "speaking his truth."
Will she book any of his accusers to tell their stories? Of course not. Don't be silly.
