Kevin Spacey's return to social media December 24 caused a stir in Hollywood, with directors and other actors using their own Twitter pages to ridicule the actor over his decision to release a bizarre movie in character like Frank Underwood. The three-minute clip contained Spacey, who apparently accused the sexual assault charges made against him, but doing so under the guise of his "House of Cards" character.
"Of course, some believed everything and have just waited with breath to hear me confess at all," said Spacey-as-Underwood in the video. "They're just dying to make me declare everything is true, and I got what I deserved. Wouldn't it be easy? If it was that simple. Just you and I both know it's never that simple, not in politics, not in life. But you wouldn't believe the worst without proof would you? You wouldn't hurry without facts, would you? Did you? "

Former Obama spokesman Jon Favreau responded to Spacey's return with a simple but effective jab: "Is Kevin Spacey using Donald Trump's legal team now?"
"I'm sure none of the men who were children at the time of their sexual assault appreciate Kevin Spacey's weird video," added Patricia Arquette. "No. Just no."

Rosanna Arquette, actress and Patricia's sister, was even more blunt, writes, "Kevin Spacey has apparently lost his mind. What an absurd video … this is just the beginning. There are many more victims."

The video was the first content that Spacey published to social media since he issued an apology to Anthony Rapp on October 30, 2017. Rapp was the first person to come and charge Spacey for sexual abuse. On the same day, Spacey put up the video, the actor was charged with sexual crime in Massachusetts.
