In response to the first accusation, Spacey released a statement in which he claimed he had no recollection of the encounter, but apologized for what he said, saying that “That would have been highly inappropriate drunken behavior.” He also came out as gay.

His words were further criticized when in 2020 an anonymous man filed a lawsuit against Spacey in New York alleging sexual abuse in the 1980s when he was a minor.. The case was also archived after authorities did not allow the trial to continue without the identity of the alleged victim being made public.
