In an interview with German newspaper Der Spiegel, the singer was asked what he thought of Spacey being recast for the forthcoming film All The Money In The World.

Rocker Morrissey can not believe Kevin Spacey has been dumped from a completed movie, insisting the Oscar victor has been “needlessly attacked” following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Anthony Rapp broke decades of silence to allege Spacey made sexual advances towards him after a party in NY in 1986. He specifically mentioned Anthony Rapp's allegations against Spacey, implying that the unwanted sexual advances were his own fault for being in a 26-year-old's bedroom as a 14-year-old, and even questioned why Rapp's parents didn't intervene.

Morrissey believes one of Kevin Spacey's accusers made up his account of being sexually harassed by the Oscar-winning actor when he was aged 14.

Morrissey made it clear that he condemns sexual abuse in any form. And they play along.

Grigor Dimitrov believes ATP Finals title can reignite his tennis career
He leveled in the eighth game before breaking once more in the 12th to snatch the set, despite Goffin hitting eight more winners. Yet rewind two years and he was struggling to play three good points in a row, let alone challenge for big titles.

He added: 'I hate rape. But if everything had gone just fine and made possible a great career, they wouldn't talk about it'. "But in quite a few cases, you look at the situation and think that the people being described as victims are simply disappointed".

"Throughout the history of music and rock "n" roll there have been musicians who have slept with their groupies".

"Afterwards they find it embarrassing or they didn't like it". You have to put these things in the right context. All of the allegations have involved men groping, molesting and assaulting others or exposing themselves and masturbating in front of subordinates. And then they turn it around and say: I was attacked, I was surprised, I was shattered into THE room.
