In less than two weeks Kevin Spacey has gone from Academy Award winner and world renowned actor to disgraced sexual predator. The latter being a truth finally seeing the light of day. And the victims list just keeps expanding. 

Harry Dreyfuss, son of Oscar Winner Richard Dreyfuss is the latest man to come forward admitting, he too, was once prey to the serial sexual predator. 

Harry took to his Twitter to bravely expel his demons and share the BuzzFeed article that has emerged which details his harrowing experience at the hands of a molester, in front of his famous father. 



“He knew he could fondle me in a room with my father and that I wouldn’t say a word. He knew I wouldn’t have had the guts. And I didn’t.”

A powerful statement; sad and horrifyingly routine. Routine not just in Hollywood but in the world at large. 

In the article Dreyfuss details how Spacey began grooming him upon introduction then over a short period lulled him into a false sense of security. He lavished the teen with comfort, advice and affection until he seized the moment to grope the young man leaving him helpless. The action happened brazenly and literally under Richard Dreyfuss' nose. Harry solemnly details his shame and guilt, not wanting to be the cause of discourse for anyone. 

A typical reaction for a survivor. 

Immediately Twitter shared it's shock and disgust.












Many put their shared disgust aside to praise Harry for finally being able to step forward. It has inspired others to share their own pain. 













This past week the fallout for Kevin was immense. He was disinvited from a special Emmy's award inauguration, a film (Gore) that was being prepared for release was dropped and he was terminated from his award winning, career defining Netflix show "House of Cards." 

When you witness the fallout it does shine a glimmer of hope that maybe the tides are turning and the predators we see hiding in plain view feel their days numbered.
