Kevin Spacey is coming under fire yet again — this time, for racism.
According to Earl Blue — the head of VIP Protective Services, which managed security on season one of House Of Cards — the 58-year-old actor refused to acknowledge the black team members and even made racial slurs while on set.
Blue even recalled he heard the disgraced actor tell his personal security manager:
“I don’t want n****** watching my trailer.”
After Blue raised concerns with producers about Spacey’s behavior, the company’s $1.1 million contract was not renewed, which allegedly cost the company millions in revenue.
The Navy vet told DailyMail.com:
“I was a tremendous fan of the man but now I am disgusted by him. I lost faith that I am in the right job after the contract was terminated. I questioned myself for months. What could I have done differently? Then I came to the realization that I did everything I was supposed to do, I was just dealing with a racist man. I sat on it for four years because I believe in confidentiality but when it comes to the point where people are being harmed, enough is enough. I realized he was getting worse and worse.”
Regarding being stationed outside of Spacey’s trailer, the guard explained:
“He would look at me, walk back to his trailer and check to make sure the door was locked. Over the course of that day I started laughing at him. He did it every single time he left his trailer – at least a dozen times. He obviously had some uneasiness about me being near the trailer. I would smile at him and even speak, say ‘good morning’ or ‘good afternoon.’ I have experienced this before. I have been black my whole life and I can tell when a person is not looking at me as a person but they are looking at me as a color. They are coming to a conclusion about what type of person I am. But I’m there to do a job and it doesn’t matter if you speak to me, I’m going to do that job. So we kept filming.”
Time’s up for Spacey!
