Bohemian Rhapsody may have been all over the Oscars, but director Bryan Singer\u2019s reputation is currently in the crapper due to some allegations of sexual abuse. Ian McKellen, a gay icon who has worked with Singer in the X-Men films, talks a bit about the allegations on Singer and fellow gay actor (and Singer collaborator) Kevin Spacey.\r\n\r\nTalking during a National Student Pride event in England (via PinkNews), McKellen comments:\r\n\r\n"Both of them were in the closet and hence all their problems as people and their relationship with other people\u2026 If they had been able to be open about themselves and their desires, they wouldn\u2019t have started abusing people in the way they\u2019ve been accused."\r\n\r\nKevin Spacey may be one of the earlier people to fall after the Harvey Weinstein scandal, but Singer had been getting allegations before the whole issue blew up. After some bad PR, it looks like Singer and Spacey will be out of the job for a while. If they were to make a comeback though, McKellen does say that it\u2019s ultimately up to the audiences. McKellen says:\r\n\r\n"I rather think that\u2019s up to the public. Do you want to see someone that\u2019s been accused of something that you don\u2019t approve of? Do you ever want to see them again?... If the answer is no, you won\u2019t buy a ticket, you won\u2019t turn on the television. But there may be others for whom that\u2019s not a consideration, and it\u2019s difficult to be exactly black and white."\r\n\r\nWhile there is no rally to have Bryan Singer come back any time soon, there has been some support coming Spacey\u2019s way. He released a video December of last year teasing a comeback, and if you look at the likes, you can see that Spacey\u2019s supporters outweigh that of the haters.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=JZveA-NAIDI\r\n\r\nWe don\u2019t know what the future holds for now, but I\u2019m hoping this #MeToo Movement doesn\u2019t have any unnecessary victims.
