Kevin Spacey ‘Let Me Be Frank’ YouTube Video Tops 8 Million Views In 3 Days | Deadline
Kevin Spacey’s bizarre video monologue has garnered more than 8 million views on YouTube in just three days, as the curious flock to see his seeming rebuttal to felony indecent assault and battery charges he faces in Massachusetts. The viewership crossed the milestone as new details emerged Thursday about the alleged groping incident.
In the video, Spacey says, “But you wouldn’t believe the worst without evidence, would you? You wouldn’t rush to judgments without facts, would you? Did you?” The dialog appears to be an attempt to address the latest accusation against him.
While impressive, the numbers on Spacey’s video pale next to others. Ariana Grande’s hit, Thank U, Next passed 46 million viewers in its first 24 hours, edging boy band BTS’s 45.9 million total. The BTS record was set in August, eclipsing Taylor Swift’s Look What You Made Me Do.
Spacey’s Dec. 24 video was posted as news arrived that he is charged with a count of felony indecent assault and battery and will be arraigned January 7 in the Massachusetts court.
An 18-year-old has accused Spacey of groping him in a Nantucket, Massachusetts bar in 2016. The accuser also revealed that he took Snapchat video of the alleged assault. The Massachusetts State Police report mentions the video, and it is reportedly included in the criminal complaint.
