The streaming company suspended production earlier this week of the upcoming sixth and final season of the political intrigue drama, in which Spacey plays U.S. president Frank Underwood.
“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of ‘House of Cards’ that includes Kevin Spacey,” the company said in a statement late on Friday.
Spacey’s publicist cut ties with him on Thursday and it was not known who currently represents him.
His departure may not mean the end of the show, however.
“While we continue the ongoing investigation into the serious allegations concerning Kevin Spacey’s behavior on the set of ‘House of Cards,’ he has been suspended Javi Martinez Trikot , effective immediately,” Media Rights Capital, the company that produces the show, said in a statement.
“MRC, in partnership with Netflix Franck Ribery Trikot , will continue to evaluate a creative path forward for the program during the hiatus,” it said.
The Netflix statement also said the company will work with MRC to determine the show’s future.
Spacey, who has had a successful career in film, television and theater, is one of several big names in the entertainment business to be accused of sexual misconduct by people coming forward in the wake of allegations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein.
Spacey apologized last weekend to actor Anthony Rapp Thiago Alcantara Trikot , who had accused him of trying to seduce him in 1986 when Rapp was 14. CNN reported on Thursday that eight current and former employees of “House of Cards,” who were not identified, alleged sexual misconduct against Spacey.
Reuters was unable to independently confirm any of the accusations.
Spacey, as part of his apology to Rapp, announced he was gay Mats Hummels Trikot , which angered many in the LGBT community and beyond who saw his announcement as an effort to divert attention from the accusation by Rapp.
Spacey has sought evaluation and treatment, his representatives said in a statement on Wednesday, without providing details on the nature of the treatment.
The announcement that he would seek treatment followed harassment allegations against him this week by Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who worked in the London theater where Spacey was artistic director from 2004-2015, and U.S. filmmaker Tony Montana.
MRC said in a statement on Thursday it had handled one incident in 2012 in which a crew member it did not identify “shared a complaint about a specific remark and gesture made by Kevin Spacey” and that immediate action had been taken and the issue was resolved.
It said Spacey had “willingly participated in a training process” and that it was not aware of any complaints since then involving the actor.
Netflix’s move to cut ties with Spacey went beyond “House of Cards.”
The company will not release the film “Gore Niklas Sule Trikot ,” which was in post-production and was produced by Spacey, its statement said. Spacey plays the late writer Gore Vidal.
BEIJING, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) — The United States is throwing cold water on the growing geniality of trade relations between itself and China with its rebuke of the latter’s bid for recognition as a market economy in the World Trade Organization (WTO).
The U.S. government recently formally opposed to China’s bid, citing decades of legal precedent and what it sees as signs the country is moving in the opposite direction.
The truth is that denial of such status for China will give the U.S. government useful tools to launch trade probes into Chinese imports under the excuses of dumping goods at unfair price advantages.
REFUSAL DISTORTS FACTS
The U.S. decision comes as the Trump administration is seeking to bridge the trade deficit with China for the so-called fair and balanced trade. To achieve that end, it is tempting to turn a blind eye to China’s concrete moves of market liberalization Sandro Wagner Trikot , international observers said.
Since China has implemented the opening up and reform policy, it has made consistent efforts to improve its market economy system, which has won global recognition. The U.S. refusal distorts facts, according to a spokesperson for the Ministry of Commerce.
China is now the world’s largest goods trading nation, being the top trading partner of more than 120 countries and regions.
Su Qingyi Manuel Neuer Trikot , a researcher with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the “non-market economy status” has not held China back from making those achievements.
The United States will not benefit from a battered bilateral trade relationship considering its interwoven interests with China. Protectionist measures also impair the interests of U.S. companies and consumers.
Over the past three decades, bilateral goods trade surged from 2.5 billion to 524.3 billion U.S. dollars. Low-cost and high-quality Chinese products have helped raise the living standard of Americans.
While much of the U.S. political campaign rhetoric focused on jobs leaving the United States, Chinese investment is supporting more jobs on that side of the Pacific.
In response to the U.S. rejection, Chinese commerce ministry official Wang Hejun said it undermines the seriousness and authority of multilateral rules.
Article 15 of the Protocol on China’s accession to the WTO in 2001 has clearly dictated that China will automatically switch over to market economy status when the surrogate country approach expires in 15 years Bayern München Trikot , which means, on that day, the legal foundation for treating China as a non-market economy is gone.
