Actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey made sexual advances on him during a party in 1986.

According to a Vanity Fair story published Tuesday, the 85-year-old writer told the publication he felt sad for Spacey, who is now embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal.

Since Rapp's initial accusations, a dozen men have come forward with claims of sexual harassment and assault, including Richard Dreyfus' son Harry.

Variety has reached out to Spacey's reps for comment.

Unruh said her son is still deeply affected by the incident, and it continues to bother him.

It's true that there's great value in profiling complex and unethical people and-at their best-these profiles can encourage empathy (not always sympathy, mind you) and a better understanding of the capabilities and failings of the human character. Unruh further adds that she filed a police report last week, though Buzzfeed News notes that the police department will not confirm or deny the report, as sexual assault reports are confidential per MA state law.

"To Kevin Spacey, I want to say this: Shame on you for what you did to my son", Ms Unruh said, according to the Associated Press, adding that "Nothing could have prepared my son for how that sexual assault would make him feel as a man". She said that her "star-struck, straight" son, "who had no idea that the famous actor was an alleged sexual predator or that he was about to become his next victim", had met Spacey at the Club Car restaurant.

She also had a message for the actor: "To Kevin Spacey I want to say this: Shame on you for what you did to my son". Rapp said he and Spacy had been starring in plays on Broadway at the time.

In response to earlier allegations, Spacey's representatives have said: "Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment". "Thanks to the courageous women who have come forward with their accusations against Harvey Weinstein and other sexual abusers".

Kevin Spacey attends the Build Series to discuss his new play "Clarence Darrow" on May 24, 2017 in NY. "No other information is available at this time".

Production on House of Cards has been indefinitely suspended since October 31, and Netflix executives have decided the streaming network won't air new episodes if the actor remains involved in the series. Netflix says the now filming sixth season will be the last.

The writer also compared Spacey to the Dalai Lama, who likely "has done something he's ashamed of".

Shortly after Rapp's allegations, Netflix announced that production of season six for "House of Cards" was suspended.
