Kevin Spacey Says His Father was a Neo-Nazi: Yes, We Wrote About All of It in 2004


Kevin Spacey announced something in court today that we wrote about in 2004: his father was a neo-Nazi, a white supremacist. Apparently this is part of his defense in his current sex scandal trial with actor Anthony Rapp.

Well, it’s not news, and Spacey has discussed it a lot over the years. We heard this story in the early 2000s at Elaine’s. By 2004 it was well known, and written about in other tabloids. So I don’t know what kind of defense this is, but it’s an old story being trotted out again.

Here’s a link to the original.
