Terry Crews detailed his sexual assault by a high-powered Hollywood agent on Good Morning America, one month after first revealing his allegations on Twitter.

'Back in February 2016, I was assaulted by Adam Venit, head of the motion picture department at William Morris Endeavor. One of the biggest agencies in the world, period,' said Crews.

The Brooklyn 911 star went on to explain that he did not even know the agent, whose clients include Adam Sandler, Sylvester Stallone and Eddie Murphy.

'I'm looking at him and he's basically staring at me and he's sticking his tongue out and, you know, it's overtly sexual kind of tongue moves and I'm saying, "It's a party. It's packed." The whole thing,' explained Crews.

'He comes over to me. I stick my hand out and he takes his hand and puts it and squeezes my genitals. And I jump back like, "hey, hey "and he's like licking his tongue out and all this stuff.'

Crews said that the assault did not end at that point however, and continued to go on in front of the other guests.

'I go, "Dude, what are you doing? What are you doing?" And then he comes back again and he just won't stop and then I really got forceful, pushed him back,' said Crews.

'He bumps into all the other partygoers and he starts giggling and laughing and let me tell you - I have never felt more emasculated, more objectified. I was horrified.'

Crews went on to say: 'I went over to Adam [Sandler] right then and there [and said], "Come get your boy. What is - what is his problem?"

The former football star, who broke onto the Hollywood scene after years of bit parts with his role in the critically acclaimed series Everybody Hates Chris, has since fired William Morris and filed a police report against Venit.

Venit, who has four children with his wife Trina, is currently on leave from the agency as they investigate the matter. 

The Los Angeles Police Department is also investigating after Crews filed a report last week.

The night of the incident however, it was Sandler that Crews approached hoping to diffuse the situation.

'I was like, "Adam, what is wrong with your boy." He didn't understand. It was bizarre to both of us,' said Crews, who at that point was having trouble controlling his anger.

'I looked at him - it was rage. And when I say rage, I felt like I could punch a hole in his head. But this is the deal - my wife told me, three years earlier, she said, "Terry, you can never handle any situation like this with violence. You are a target. You can be baited and pulled."'

He then told host Michael Strahan that as a black man, he believed that the blame would be entirely placed on him if he lashed out at Venit.

'If you react, physically - and let me tell you something, I've done it before, but this is the deal, when I grabbed her hand and I left that party, we were only there for like a half hour, I almost ripped the steering wheel off and she just kept saying, "I'm proud of you. I'm proud of you."'

Crews then expressed how grateful he was that Rebecca, his wife of 27 years, was by his side that night.

'She calmed me down because she was the one who told me that this kind of thing would happen and that you could be baited,' he said. 

'If I would have just retaliated in defense I would be in jail right now. That's one thing I knew being a large African-American man in America, I would immediately be seen as a thug but I'm not a thug.' 

Strahan then asked about the police report, to which Crews responded: 'You know, people need to be held accountable, Mike. This is the deal about Hollywood. And it's an abuse of power.

He continued: 'This guy, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, and he looked at me at the end as if, you know, who is going to believe you?'

Crews also said that he was only able to come forward now because of the recent movement of victims naming the sexual predators that attacked them. 

'I put it in the back of my head and I understood why women everywhere had to let it go, but let me tell you when the Weinstein thing started happening I got PTSD,' said Crews.

'I was going, oh my god, this exact thing happened to me. I understand why they won't come forward.'

Crews then explained his silence the same way that the more than 100 woman who have accused the likes of Weinstein and James Toback have over the past few weeks. 

'When a person of power breaks that boundary and violates that boundary you're a prisoner of war immediately because you're trying to figure out with is the right time to come out,' said Crews.

'I'm free. I finally got free and this is the thing a lot of people just don't understand and they end up blaming the victim. And I have totally said I will not be shamed. I will not be shamed. I did nothing wrong.'

The Hollywood agent that was accused of groping Terry Crews at a party last year has now been identified.

Adam Venit is the head of the motion pictures department at the William Morris Endeavor talent agency. He has been placed on leave while Crew’s allegations are investigated.

Venit is well known in the industry, representing big-name celebrities like Emma Stone, Eddie Murphy, and interestingly, Dustin Hoffman and Brett Ratner who are two of the others who have been accused of sexual assault or harassment.

Crews told his story, without identifying the man, when the Harvey Weinstein story first broke.

He stated that the reports he was hearing were traumatic for him. “Why?” he asked, “Because this kind of thing happened to ME,” he tweeted, before describing how a “high level Hollywood executive” groped his “privates” at a party.

“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,” Crews wrote on Twitter.

“He called me the next day with an apology but never really explained why he did what he did,” Crews went on.

EXTREMELY CLOSE person to actor Terry Crews – give more details on the predatory male producer Terry claims sexually assaulted him. 

We were told the following: “The producer is not White, he’s BLACK. Yes, we [Black people] do the same stuff to ourselves.” The insider continued, “That [producer] is known for doing the same stuff that Weinstein did, except to men.”

We can’t name names right now – but we’ve been told that one young actor on a project being run by this powerful producer – is basically his “sex slave.” The insider explained, “That poor kid has to continue giving up , or it’s over.”

Terry Crews reminds us that we have to talk about sexual assault of Black men and boys

In the wake of many female stars and employees coming forward about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual harassment and assault, actor Terry Crewshas a story of his own experience with sexual assault in Hollywood.
The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star, 49, shared his story on social media because he wanted to let his followers know that Weinstein “is not the only perpetrator.”


“This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME…,” Crews tweeted Tuesday. “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.”
Crews continued, “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.”


The “Expendables” star said he didn’t “kick his ass” because he thought of how the media would spin the story.
“’240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho’ would be the headline the next day,” Crews shared, adding that he wouldn’t have been able to read it because he “would have been in jail.” Instead, he and his wife left the party.


Crews says he talked to other people who had worked with the unnamed executive, and the next day the power player apologized to Crews but “never really explained why he did what he did.” Crews said he didn’t go public with his experience because he didn’t want to be “ostracized” from the business, which he described as something that would be “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,” he tweeted. “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).”
Crews wrote that he hoped his story would “deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless.”

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In a series of tweets Tuesday, TV star Terry Crews reminded us that black men and boys experience sexual assault too.
In the wake of sexual assault allegations against rapper Nelly and film producer and studio executive, Harvey Weinstein, it’s important for black men to tell our stories if safe to do so.
Just last week, numerous sexual assault allegations have been made against Weinstein, and that number is increasing daily. As most rape allegations go, there were a range of responses where people like Ryan Coogler, the director of 2013’s “Fruitvale Station” and Oscar-award winning Viola Davis issued powerful

statements encouraging and empowering women and girl survivors of sexual assault to come forward. Coogler noted “rape is a human rights “violation” and Davis underscored that “The predator wants your silence.” Indeed, both are right.

On the other hand, rape apologists – as they so often do when a man is accused of assault –rushed to Weinstein and Nelly’s defenses to provide reasons on why a rape did not occur. As it relates to Nelly and his arrest, many took to social media to express that Nelly wouldn’t have to rape anyone because he’s attractive, a statement both inaccurate and disappointing.

As a survivor, I hate when rape happens.

It rips a life inside you and lives on with you forever even as you try to forget. What bothers me even more is how social media exposes people as rape apologists after it occurs. This is especially true if the rapist is someone people find conventionally attractive such as Nelly. Many people suddenly become Inspector Gadget attempting to poke holes in stories and question a survivor’s actions that led to the interaction. It becomes erringly similar to how white people sound when they question why a black person was killed by the police.

Rape isn’t something that only orthodoxly unattractive people do. My rapist was married and had consensual sex with her often. Tell me how this works?

Rape isn’t about how the rapist looks. It’s about taking advantage of people; it’s about power, domination, and control; it’s about using power and knowing that people won’t believe the person you rape. To be clear, celebrities are in the best position to rape because they have power, access, resources, and people who will log onto social media and defend their rape no matter how many people accuse them.

The statistics of rape are clear. According to the Rape Abuse Incest National Network (RAINN), with data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), 1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8 percent completed, 2.8 percent attempted). Further, an estimated 3 percent of American men—or 1 in 33—have experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. These numbers, however, are projected to be much higher as this is based on reportable and provided data.

As the numbers suggest, many people – including individuals who many of us know – have been raped at least once in their lifetime, but will never come forward. We are to blame.

When we have a society that uplifts and perpetuate rape culture, we are allowing the continuation of rapes to occur. And, when people defend rape, one of your followers who have been raped (and who have been forced into silence) will see it.

In the height of Weinstein and Nelly’s accusations, it’s critical for Crews’ story to not get lost because black men don’t often speak up about their own sexual assault. But here, it is connected to Weinstein in that Crews’ story comes after Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Rosanna Arquette, Rose McGowan, and many other women in Hollywood have gone public with tales of the harassment and abuse they sustained at the hands of Weinstein.

To be clear, it isn’t only black men who don’t speak up after experiencing sexual assault because of potential backlash. The way we respond to victims and survivors is deeply rooted in racism, misogyny, and rape culture, which creates an impenetrable hurdle for those who may want to openly speak. What’s more, it’s the shaming of sexual assault and how it manifests that also impact black men and boys, too. There is an engrained attitude that men, especially those with a height and build like Crews, can’t be sexually assaulted by others. They are wrong.

Masculinity forces a deity complex onto men and makes us believe that anything not deemed as “masculine” isn’t worth exploring. When we experience sexual assault, we first tap into that constricting masculinity and if we don’t believe we can hold onto that, we silence ourselves. Then, coupled with the way we see the treatment of others who come forward, we decide to remain silent. But, we can’t let masculinity win because we all know it leaves us dead inside.

Crews’ coming forward, especially in the wake of accusations against Weinstein and Nelly, is a brave act and it’s time for black men and boys to recognize that we aren’t alone.

How is this dude gonna go around flaunting his muscles every time he gets a chance and now he wants to talk about this. We should of heard about him beating someone's ass for touching him back then, but no.... he wants to wait until all these other people come forward with their story before he tells his story. If he couldn't handle his business back then, he should just kept his mouth shut, because it just makes him look like a big punk!!!!!

GospelPan  thats why i dont respect those men these days unless i know them, just about every one of them are a dollar away from being some bodys b****, if i can sue you and i have witness, the hell with a career i can take my money and start my own production, but see negros in hollywood prefer to knock on someones door for audition so of course they have to be somebody's b****, he said the man grabbed him so hard, he jumped if so than someone must of seen so what was the excuse? so it all comes down to as long as you can keep your job remain a victim, bit to every one who supports this nonsense here comes the reality if it was another black man who did that he would not care about getting arrested, he would go all out of him, he would fight or even kill him, and you know why because niggers are going to be niggers, they will kill their own kind just for looking at them while they give every one else a pass even when they degrade them

Comment by GospelPan on November 16, 2017 at 3:58pm
Listen, most straight men would've knocked him out period, it may end their career but that's crossing the line. The fact that he let it slide speaks volumes...

Oh well. Maybe some people would put their livelihood on the line right then and there, but I'm glad people have cooler heads on their shoulders. Smart, careful, wise decisions are a hallmark of grown ass people too.
