Eight "House of Cards" employees are saying that New Jersey native Kevin Spacey made a toxic work environment through a harassment pattern, CNN reports.
All eight people -- who currently and formerly worked on the show -- said the South Orange native's behavior included nonconsensual touching and crude comments, the article says.
The allegations come on the heels of a BuzzFeed article in which actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making sexual advances toward in when he was 14 years old.
Spacey said the following in a statement:
"I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago. "But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years."
