Morrissey has branded sexual assault allegations made against Kevin Spacey as “ridiculous” and said the actor has been “needlessly attacked”. The singers claims came as it was announced Oscar-winner Spacey will be replaced by Christopher Plummer in upcoming film All The Money In The World, despite the fact it is due to be released before the end of the year. Last month, Anthony Rapp accused the 58-year-old of harassing him when he was 14 in 1986.
Morrissey has invited fresh criticism over comments he made about Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. The former Smiths frontman spoke about the ongoing sexual harassment scandal in Hollywood, reportedly calling claims against Spacey "ridiculous" and arguing that definitions of harassment and assault have become too broad. Kevin Spacey was 26, boy 14.
