BET and other media outlets are reporting that actor Kevin Spacey – currently under fire for alleged sexual misconduct on some women – reportedly screamed racial slurs at Black security personnel on the set of popular NetFlix show “House of Cards.” The Daily News reports that the incidents began as far back as 2012, when Spacey allegedly became upset that some security staff members were Black. Earl Blue, the head of VIP Protective Services, said the famed actor screamed that he didn’t want “niers watching” his trailer. Blue said he revealed the comments to managers on the set, who in turn allegedly told him, “That’s just the way he is; we’ve got to keep him happy. When it was time to renew VIP’s contract, it was not picked up again, although producers reportedly told Blue they were pleased with his staff’s work. Since the sexual misconduct charges have come out, Spacey has been removed from “House of Cards” and other pending NetFlix projects.
