It’s been a while since we’ve seen Kevin Spacey. The actor has been charged with sexual misconduct several times in recent years. And it fell out of the public spotlight, only to reappear occasionally in a series of videos that some describe as creepy, others as disturbing, and some as quite confusing. Channeling his Frank Underwood personality, the actor has apparently threatened his accusers while trying to dismiss some of his actions. He dropped his first Christmas video on December 24, 2018 and followed almost exactly a year later with a second video that broke off a chimney chat on Christmas Eve 2019. Now he’s arriving with his third annual Christmas video. This one is a little more somber as it drops the impression of Frank Underwood and addresses the people suffering in 2020.
This third Christmas video is titled 1-800 Christmas. Kevin Spacey does not appear above the short Youtube sketch and this time offers condolences to those struggling with the holidays this year. He offers the following thoughts before sharing the suicide hotline number.
“When you stand in a place where you can no longer stand, when you suffer, when you need help, when you feel guilty or ashamed, when you struggle with your identity, when your back is against the wall, or if you feel that there is no way for you whatever your situation, I promise there is a way, at this time during this vacation and beyond, there are people out there even if you don’t feel it who understands and who can help because you are not alone. “
Kevin Spacey dropped his first Christmas video when he was charged with sexually assaulting an 18-year-old boy in Massachusetts in 2016. Spacey took on his Frank Underwood role and indirectly addressed the sexual assault allegations while also commenting on his character’s death on the Netflix hit drama House of cardswho ended his run without him. He said this in this video.
“All of those guesses led to such an unsatisfactory ending, believing that it could have been such a memorable goodbye. I can promise you this: If I hadn’t paid the price for the things we both know I did did it, I sure am I won’t pay the price for the things I haven’t done. “
The charges raised in the 2018 video were dropped after Spacey’s prosecutor asserted the rights of the fifth amendment. The once acclaimed actor would return exactly a year later and wish everyone a Merry Christmas in a second holiday video. He has since been absent from social media and Hollywood in general for the past 365 days.
Kevin Spacey has faced multiple legal battles since he was accused of obtaining sexual advantage by actor Anthony Rapp when Rapp was only 14 years old. Spacey’s youngest accuser, an unnamed massage therapist, died midway through the trial, and the property dropped all charges. Despite this new video from Kevin Spacey, it’s unclear what the future holds for the actor, but he’s likely to be out of Hollywood soon. Individuals struggling with suicidal thoughts during this holiday season are encouraged to call the Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
