Kevin Spacey recites poem in first public appearance since sexual misconduct allegations

United States actor Kevin Spacey made his first public appearance after a sexual harassment case against him was dropped, Fox News reported Saturday.

This was the grim scenario that confronted tourists in Rome this week, when the disgraced actor showed up at the Palazzo Massimo alle Terme to recite some verse.

For months he has kept out of the public eye, his former star status languishing under a cloud of notoriety following allegations of sexual assault. "Everyone was so happy to celebrate art, it was an honour to have Kevin Spacey reading my poems, Rome loves you!", he tweeted. And the more empty you are. "They used me for their entertainment". "Life was over in a moment". A Daily Beast correspondent who witnessed the performance called it "unapologetic".

He continued: "Fools! You couldn't imagine that I would be resuscitated in this metal suit, that I would come back to stare at you with my dark face, without lips". "By the time it was over, a bigger crowd had gathered outside, and he read the whole poem again to them", Latza Nadeau wrote. "Not everyone knew how to do this".

This was the first time Spacey has performed in public since sexual misconduct charges from 2017 were dropped by a MA prosecutor, after William Little declined to testify against him at a pretrial hearing.

Outside of his court appearances for the sexual assault of an 18-year old bus boy, this has been Spacey's first public appearance since a total of 15 accusations of sexual assault were levelled against him. The actor, whose career nosedived in 2017 amid sexual-assault allegations, appeared at the National Roman Museum and read a poem about a wounded boxer who vowed never to give up.
