'Needlessly attacked': Morrissey jumps to Kevin Spacey's defence

21 November 2017

In an interview with German publication Der Spiegel the former Smiths frontman made several claims including one that Spacey had been "unfairly attacked". "Why aren't we downstairs in the lobby?' So it doesn't quite ring true to me, and it seems to me like he's been unnecessarily attacked".

If you recall, Rapp said that in 1986, when he was 14-years-old and Spacey was around age 26, Spacey invited him over to his New York City apartment for a party.

Since Rapp named Spacey (Rapp had previously discussed the incident), multiple men have revealed their "me too" stories.

He replied: 'As far as I know, he was in the bedroom with a 14-year-old.

In the opinion of the contractor, who has previously expressed his support for Kevin spacey and Harvey Weinstein, the alleged victims accused the celebrities of harassment because they did not like intimacy.

"You have to wonder where the boy's parents were", Morrissey said.

His take on Weinstein was also shocking, saying that "people know exactly what happens". I don't know what it was like for him but in my youth I was never in a situation like that. Never. It was always clear to me what could happen. If youre in somebodys bedroom, you need to be aware of where that could lead. That's why it does not sound very credible to me. And then they turn it around and say: "I was attacked, I was surprised".

He added: "And they play along". "Afterwards they were embarrassed or they didn't enjoy it".

I was dragged into the room'. "If everything went well, and if it had given them a great career, they would not talk about it", he said. I hate sexual situations that are forced upon someone. "But in quite a few cases, you look at the situation and think that the people being described as victims are simply disappointed".

To cap it all off, he added that many famous musicians of the past had slept with fans below the age of consent. If you go through history, nearly everyone is guilty of sleeping with minors. You have to put these things in the right context. But he's largely been quiet during a spate of sexual assault allegations involving Hollywood and media power-players.
