Disgraced actor, Kevin Spacey has been accused of racism by the head of a security company that worked on the set of the Netflix’s “House of Cards”.
Earl Blue, the head of VIP Protective Service and Navy veteran, told Daily Mail that Spacey would refuse to acknowledge the black team members and made racist remarks. He also said Spacey was overheard by some of his employees telling a member of his personal security team, “I don’t want n****rs watching my trailer,” referring to the Netflix show, House of Cards, in which he played the lead role, Frank Underwood.
Blue, 51, cited “confidentiality” as the reason why he waited four years to come forward, but told the paper it came “to the point where people are being harmed, enough is enough.” Blue said his company’s contract was not renewed despite receiving no complaints and being told by representatives of the company that hired them that they were “really pleased.” He told the paper that he later learned through a production manager that Spacey said in a conference call that he “did not want n*****s on his set anymore.”
However, another source told Daily Mail that there were break-ins under the security company, VIP’s watch—including in Spacey’s trailer — so the contract was given to another firm.
Blue denied the account and said he wasn’t given a reason for why his contract was terminated. Since losing the Netflix gig, Blue said his company has struggled to find work.
Iain Paterson, who was a producer on the show, told the paper that the work of VIP Protective Service’s was “unsatisfactory,” but would not comment further on the accusations made by Blue.
A former employee of the VIP Protective Service told the Mail that he has “no particular recollection” of Spacey eliciting racist behavior. Although, he added that Spacey was a “real a**hole” who would get “temperamental.”
