Terry Crews files police report claiming sexual assault by Hollywood honcho

When asked by the gossip rag's photographer why he filed the report, Crews responded, "Because people have to be held accountable". Crews came forward to tell his story, saying that a powerful person in Hollywood had grabbed his crotch and then "grinned like a jerk".

Terry went on to empathise with the victims of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual harassment for not coming forward sooner, and claimed that Harvey Weinstein is not the only perpetrator.

"I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear".

Crews only identified the perpetrator as a "high-level Hollywood executive" when he recalled the incident on October 10.

As the alleged incident occurred previous year, it falls within the statute of limitations and could, therefore, lead to a criminal investigation. Also, news outlets have noted that Adam Venit has since taken a leave of absence from the agency since the news surfaced. Attempts to reach Venit for comment were not immediately successful. "240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho" would be the headline the next day, '" he wrote.

"That night and the next day I talked to everyone I knew that worked with him about what happened".

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". Crews has not specifically named the person who groped him, but mentioned to his followers at the time that it's often easier to just let these injustices go. Crews said he kept silent because he didn't want to be ostracized in Hollywood due to the executive's power and influence.
