Skip to comments.Terry Crews says ‘high-level Hollywood executive’ groped crotch: ‘He just grinned’
Posted on 10/10/2017 5:02:35 PM PDT by EdnaMode
Hollywood star Terry Crews unleashed a flurry of tweets on Tuesday detailing sexual harassment he received at the hands of a high-level Hollywood producer.
The star of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and movies like The Expendables told fans that revelations about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein in a recent expose by The New York Times are just the tip of the iceberg. He then disclosed an 2016 incident at a Hollywood function in which an industry power player grabbed his testicles.
This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD, the actor tweeted. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME. My wife [and] I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high level Hollywood executive came over [to] me and groped my privates. Jumping back I said What are you doing?! My wife saw everything [and] we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk.
Mr. Crews wrote that he wanted to retaliate, but thought better of it due to his race and massive size.
240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho would be the headline the next day. Only I probably wouldnt 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 [because] I didnt want [to be] ostracized par [for] the course when the predator has power [and] influence. I let it go.

1) he’s a 240LB black man- why didn’t he deck the guy that grabbed his gonads?
2) why is he still being a coward about the situation and not naming the guy?
The left is killing the NFL. Next up is the movie/TV industry. You would have to be blind to not see how some young actresses and actors weren’t taken advantage of in order to further their careers.
Let it all hang out! Sorry, bad choice of words.
POPCORN!!!! This is getting good. Rats going cannibal??
Name names. Otherwise, what’s the use?
Did he take or give a Knee?
I just love when they eat their own
Unless you’ve worked in Hollywood, you don’t really understand the culture of fear. There are thousands of eager, willing applicants for every job. Character is tested daily. Don’t have a huge amount of experience in other fields, so I can’t speak with authority on other competitive professional cultures, but I know showbiz pretty well.
Hollyweird - the flesh peddlers

If you sell your soul to the devil you better be able and willing to take a pineapple up the ass without lube.
A common denominator in all of these stories is that the victim only tells some small circle or no one, and the predator goes on to attack other people. So, I’m fully expecting Jimmy Kimmel to accuse all of the victims of enabling further abuse and that they “bear some responsibility” for what happened to others.

Corey Feldman has talked about this in the past. I wonder if this is what he was talking about.......sad
“You would have to be blind to not see how some young actresses and actors werent taken advantage of in order to further their careers.”
Hopefully the dam is about to burst wide open not only on the abuse of women in ultra liberal Hollywood, but also men-on-men abuse, as well as pedophilia. It’s good to see big names like Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie (yes, I know, but forget their politics for a moment) speaking out with charges of their own, and now, Terry Crews. Other, lesser known actors and actresses can easily be intimidated into silence and brushed aside as publicity seekers. Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Joline cannot be dismissed so easily by their fellow lefties.
Grabbing a muscle-bound guy like Crews without permission? Stupid. Really stupid. I mean really, really effing stupid. Guy is lucky he didn’t lose his arm.
I disagree. There are not a lot of acting jobs in movies, tv, and theater, compared to the number of talented people who want to be professional performers. Of the roles available, a lot of them go to people whose families are in the industry, like Gwyneth Paltrow. Many very attractive and talented people never make it out of community theater, just as brilliant musicians can spend their entire career sleeping in a truck because they never hit the big break.
It’s understandable that performers would do anything to cling to the position they’ve reached. Not admirable, but understandable.
“I decided not 2 take it further [because] I didnt want [to be] ostracized”
I don’t blame him. Having a good gig in Hollywood is like winning the lottery. Probably 99% of actors are really waiters, valets, carpenters, et al who have occasional walk-on parts. Why jinx it? If the cost of coming out with something like this was to risk never working in your chosen profession again, would you do it? This is why the people initially dishing on Weinstein were mostly the ones whose careers were fading, like Ashley Judd, and so on, who had little to lose.
