Crews had tweeted certain details about the incident back in October, as accounts of Harvey Weinstein‘s decades-long history of sexual misconduct started to be reported. But after filing a police report last week, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star sat down with Michael Strahan this morning to share his full story.
Terry Crews shares his story: “He comes over to me, and I stick my hand out, and he literally takes his hand, and puts it, and squeezes my genitals... I have never felt more emasculated.” pic.twitter.com/QP4FKW1TyR— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) November 15, 2017
According to Crews, William Morris Endeavor agent Adam Venit approached him at an industry party in 2016 and grabbed him inappropriately. Crews says he attempted to shake Venit’s hand, but Venit “squeezed [Crews’] genitals” while making suggestive tongue gestures.
“I jumped back like, ‘Hey, hey, dude, what are you doing?!” Crews said. Crews claims Venit then groped him a second time. He recalls pushing Venit back, and Venit “laughing and giggling.”
“I’ve never felt more emasculated, more objectified. I was horrified,” Crews said.
Venit represents Adam Sandler, and Crews says he reached out to Sandler to tell him about the incident—but Sandler was apparently just as confused.
Ultimately, the 240-pound former NFL player told Michael Strahan that he refrained from physical retaliation because he didn’t want to be viewed as a “thug.” He and his wife quietly left the party after 30 minutes.
William Morris Endeavor confirmed to ABC that Venit has been “suspended following the internal investigation into the matter.”
