The firestorm started with the accusation of actor Anthony Rapp, who alleged that he was harassed by Spacey when he was only 14 while the actor was 26. Unruh has been tweeting for weeks about the sexual harassment and assault scandals in Hollywood, starting with investigations into Harvey Weinstein.

Unruh said her son was able to escape when Spacey got up for a moment to use the restroom.

Ms Unruh claimed her shocked son had attempted to remove Mr Spacey's hand but the "violation" had continued.

"While he has tried his best to deal with it, it's always there and continues to bother him".

In response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn't remember Rapp's alleged incident and apologized "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior". I can assure you this is not the kind of attention anyone wants. Last week, a representative for the actor confirmed he was seeking treatment. "No other information will be available at this time".
