Terry Crews Reveals How He Was Sexually Assaulted By Someone In Hollywood And Why He Kept Silent


Over the last month, Hollywood has been rocked by a series of disturbing sexual assault allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein, igniting a heated debate on rape culture and the responsibility of celebrities to protest it. Actor and former football player Terry Crews has bravely come forward to add his voice to the discussion, and has shared a troubling and unexpected story on Twitter about his own traumatizing experience with a Hollywood executive.

Crews’ admission comes in response to an exposé published by The New York Times on October 5th. The report revealed widespread sexual harassment and abusive acts committed by Miramax co-founder Harvey Weinstein toward multiple women, including actress Ashley Judd. Others, such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, have also claimed unwanted advances from Weinstein.

“Hopefully, me coming forward with my story will deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless,” Crews concluded his emotional thread. Scroll down to find out what he wrote, and how the Internet reacted.
