Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey is now being accused of racism on top of his history of trying to bed underage men.
Kevin Spacey, the former star of House of Cards, is being accused by the show’s former security manager of being a racist that cost him a multi-million dollar contract providing on-set security, according to the Daily Mail.
51-year-old Earl Blue is head of VIP Protective Services, a security firm contracted by Knight Takes King Productions to provide security on the set of House of Cards back in 2012. Blue is accusing Spacey of ignoring his team of professionals, who are predominantly of African descent, as well as making racial slurs.
At one point Blue says that his team was watching a trailer for the show while Spacey walked by with his head of personal security. Blue then heard Spacey mutter, “I don't want n---ers watching my trailer."
At other times Spacey refused to shake security team member's hands. Complaining to the set managers was ineffective as Blue was always told, "That's just the way he is; we've got to keep him happy."
Although HBO used VIP Protective Services to provide security on other projects, and House of Cards producers stated they were happy with his company, Blue’s lucrative $1.1 million contract was not renewed after 2012.
Now, four years later, Blue is accusing Spacey of having something to do with that loss of business.
At the time, Blue berated himself and thought his loss of the contract was a personal or business failure. "Then I came to the realization that I did everything I was supposed to do, I was just dealing with a racist man,” Blue tells Daily Mail.
Spacey has been fired from House of Cards ever since allegations surfaced that he had assaulted underage men throughout his life. Netflix has severed all ties with Spacey, and he was also cut from Ridley Scott's film All the Money in the World and replaced by Christopher Plummer in reshoots.
