Amid Harvey Weinstein Scandal, Terry Crews Says He Was Violated by Another Hollywood Executive

By  | 

In a series of tweets, Terry Crews confirmed hours ago that he has also experienced the dark side of show business.

He claims he was also violated by a big time Hollywood executive.

He writes:

This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME. My wife n I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates. Jumping back I said What are you doing?! My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk. I was going to kick his ass right then— but I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear. 240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho” would be the headline the next day. Only I probably wouldn’t have been able to read it because I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN JAIL. So we left. That night and the next day I talked to everyone I knew that worked with him about what happened. He called me the next day with an apology but never really explained why he did what he did. 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. I let it go. And I understand why many women who this happens to let it go. Who’s going 2 believe you? ( few) What r the repercussions?(many) Do u want 2 work again? (Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized?(No) I love what I do. But it’s a shame and the height of disappointment when someone tries to takes advantage of that. He knows who he is. But sumtimes Uhav2 wait & compare notes w/ others who’ve been victimized in order 2gain a position of strength. I understand and empathize with those who have remained silent. But Harvey Weinstein is not the only perpetrator. Hollywood is not the only business we’re this happens, and to the casualties of this behavior— you are not alone. Hopefully, me coming forward with my story will deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless.

    What a sick thing to do to a grown man, and in front of his wife. Sad thing is so many people aspire to be in Hollywood, no matter what the consequences are. This is so gross

    I’m not surprised. These executives think they can do whatever they want.

    I don’t get why he seem to be surprised. He has been in multiple movies and know how Hollywood is! He’s probably embarrassed his wife was their and witnessed it.
