The Kevin Spacey Foundation has taken down its social media accounts in the wake of sexual abuse allegations against its founder, actor Kevin Spacey.

What happened?

The Washington Free Beacon reported that the foundation’s website and Twitter account were taken down on Thursday. The website touted the foundation's mission to provide mentorship and scholarships to "school children, young people and emerging artists in the performing arts and film."

The website appeared to be back online Friday.

However, in addition to its Twitter account, the organization appeared to pull down its Facebook and Instagram accounts. It also scrubbed content from its YouTube account.

The Free Beacon reported that the website was pulled down shortly after its inquiries about the foundation’s status in light of the allegations.

A representative for the foundation did not immediately respond to TheBlaze’s request for comment.

A spokesperson for the organization told Variety that “KSF has never received any report of improper conduct either by Mr. Spacey or anyone else connected with the foundation.”

What are the allegations against Spacey?

Actor Anthony Rapp recently told BuzzFeed that Spacey threw him on a bed and climbed on top of him when he was just 14. Similar allegations followed, including from employees on the set of Netflix's "House of Cards," in which Spacey stars. Netflix halted production of the show after the allegations came to light.

Spacey was criticized for coming out as gay in his response to the allegations.
