Netflix Exec Confirms HOUSE OF CARDS Spinoff

Netflix Exec Confirms HOUSE OF CARDS Spinoff

When the allegations began to pile up a year ago, Spacey was sacked from House of Cards, replaced with Christopher Plummer in the Ridley Scott film All the Movie In The World and was removed from his pending projects with Netflix. The actor reportedly called security guards the "N" word during the filming of the first season of the show.

According to the Daily Mail, Earl Blue, who worked as the VIP Protective Services head endowed with the responsibility of maintaining security of the show, stated that Spacey often made racial remarks on Earl and his black crew and looked at them with suspicion.

Furthermore, Blue claimed some of his staffers overheard Spacey telling a member of his own personal security detail, "I don't want n*****s watching my trailer", referring to an advertisement for "House of Cards" in which he played the lead character, Frank Underwood.

Blue denied the account and said he wasn't given a reason for why his contract was terminated.

Blue said he brought up his concerns about Spacey to the higher-ups and was told "that's just the way he is" and "we've got to keep him happy". He never spoke to my security guards but he was talking to everyone else.

Kevin Spacey allegedly ignored black security personnel on the set of "House of Cards".

Blue, a U.S. Navy veteran, stated that he was a huge fan of Spacey but after what Spacey did, he said he is thoroughly disgusted by Spacey's racist attitude and actions. Moreover, Blue and the supervisor believe that many more have been discriminated against by Spacey, who has been in the news recently due to accusations of sexual assault by several men. And Blue thinks Spacey had something to do with the company's $1.1 million contract not getting renewed. "When I went to meet Mr Spacey to say hello to him, I went to extend my hand to him to shake his and he didn't want to shake my hand". I questioned myself for months. "Then I came to the realization that I did everything I was supposed to do, I was just dealing with a racist man".

Scott previously told The News that he made the decision to remove Spacey from his role as the billionaire J. Paul Getty "immediately".

"I have no doubt that this type of predatory behavior was routine for him and that my experience was one of many and that Kevin had few if any qualms about exploiting his status and position", he said.

Blue was not at the meeting, but was told about this by a production manager who was.

He said the reason Blue's contract was severed was "never explained".
