National Football League player-turned-actor Terry Crews is hoping to change that: The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star went to the LAPD yesterday to file a police report against the "high-level Hollywood executive" he claims groped him at a party a year ago.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" actor Terry Crews has taken action against the Hollywood honcho he claims groped him at a party past year.
"I decided not 2 take it further becuz I didn't want 2b ostracized- par 4 the course when the predator has power n influence", continued Crews. Crews wrote on his Twitter account he was at a function with his wife when the Hollywood executive came over and allegedly grabbed his "privates" and the alleged abuser then "grinned like a j-k" when Crews questioned what he was doing.
NBC News' sources indicate that Crews named William Morris Endeavor talent agent Adam Venit as his alleged attacker. Among those he represents are director Brett Ratner and actors Casey Affleck and Dustin Hoffman, all of whom have also been accused of sexual harassment or abuse over the last several weeks.
Terry Crews took to Twitter at the beginning of October and shared his experience. "And I understand why many women who this happens to let it go". ( few) What r the repercussions?(many) Do u want 2 work again? (No). I understand and empathize with those who have remained silent. (Yes.) Are you prepared to be ostracised? "Hopefully, me coming forward with my story will deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless".
Crews said he later received a phone call from Venit, who reportedly apologized, but the actor added he never found out "why he did what he did".
