A character from the popular TV show “Family Guy” joked about escaping from actor Kevin Spacey’s basement in a 2005 episode.

Stewie Griffin, the Family Guy baby, joked about Spacey allegations in an episode more than 12 years ago, Metro reported. The “House of Cards” actor stands accused of making sexual advances on 14-year-old Anthony Rapp during a party in 1986.

“Help, I’ve escaped Kevin Spacey’s basement, help me,” the Family Guy character yelled, perhaps hinting at inappropriate sexual relations with a minor.


Spacey has since come out as a “gay man” in a tweet, and said he had no recollection of making alleged sexual advances on Rapp, blaming the alleged incident on “drunken behavior.”

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane previously called out Harvey Weinstein when hosting the Oscars in 2013 for making sexual advances on a friend in 2011.

Weinstein currently has at least 60 women accusing him of sexual assault and harassment.
