Certain power players in Hollywood don’t have a problem playing grab ass with just about any star of their choosing, according to admissions that are coming from various celebs who say they’ve been victims of sexual assault by members of Hollywood’s well-connected elite.
Over the last week, producer Harvery Weinstein was accused of allegedly sexually harassing and or assaulting several actresses over the span of three decades. The shocking revelation rocked Hollywood–and prompted alleged victims of both Harvey and other power brokers in the film capital to come forward with their own admissions.
The latest to come forward: veteran actor Terry Crews, a big buff, former NFL football player-turned-actor who usually ends up shirtless in most of his movies. But Crews says he was helpless when he became the victim of an out-in-the-open sexual assault while attending a Hollywood party with his wife.
According to Crews, a man he declined to name publicly but referred to as a “Hollywood honcho”, grabbed Crews’ private parts while his shocked wife looked on.
Crews said he wanted to “kick his ass”, but feared retaliation:
“’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, though, he and his wife left the party.
Crews says that night and the next day, he talked to other people who had worked with the executive, and the following day the man 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).”
