In light of the numerous misconduct claims brought against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinsteinby women like Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and more, the actor has come forward with his own sexual assault allegations aimed at an unnamed “Hollywood executive.”
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star detailed the incident on Twitter Tuesday, which he said occurred at a party he attended sometime last year with his wife, Rebecca King-Crews.
“This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME,” Crews began. “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 said he then confronted the individual, but declined to take the matter further over fear of the public’s perception.
He wrote, “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,” Crews recalled. “Only I probably wouldn’t have been able to read it because I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN JAIL. So we left.”
Terry then said he disclosed the alleged assault with numerous people, and the next day received an apology from the person.
