Fans Want Robin Wright To Take Over As President On ‘House Of Cards’

House of Cards Promo

Netflix

Netflix fired Kevin Spacey from House of Cards yesterday, but that doesn’t mean the hit show needs to end.

Last Sunday, actor Anthony Rapp went public with allegations that Spacey made unwanted sexual advancements towards him when he was 14 years old. In the week following, eight House of Cards employees (past and present) have come forward with anonymous allegations of sexual assault and harassment against the lead actor.

“I have no doubt that this type of predatory behavior was routine for him and that my experience was one of many and that Kevin had few if any qualms about exploiting his status and position,” a production assistant told CNN.

Netflix has since fired Spacey from the show, and production has been suspended, leaving longtime fans wary that the other talented actors on the show will have their platform pulled out from under them.

Fortunately, Twitter has a winning solution for continuing the show without Spacey: shift the spotlight to his calculating, ruthless, icy on-screen wife. By writing Robin Wright into the role of president, the show will have just as strong of a lead — albeit a much less problematic one.

.@netflix please fire Kevin Spacey and make House of Cards completely about Claire Underwood thank you and goodbye

Why cancel house of cards when you can fire Kevin, double Robin's salary & make the whole show about Claire kicking ass as POTUS

How about we not cancel House of Cards, kill off Frank Underwood, and make Claire the lead?

Democracy has spoken. There can still be a President Underwood.
