In the wake of the explosive allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein in the New York Times and the New Yorker, actor Terry Crews has shared his own story.

The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star tweeted: “This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME…”

Crews, 49, said a high-powered talent agent groped him at a Hollywood party he was attending with his wife Rebecca King-Crews.

Read his Twitter thread below:

 

Since he first spoke out, the actor has chosen to name the Hollywood agent who sexually assaulted him. "Back in February 2016, I was assaulted by Adam Venit, who is the head of the Motion Picture Department at William Morris Endeavor, one of the biggest agencies in the world," Crews told Michael Strahan of "Good Morning America."

"He's connected to probably everyone I know in the business," he continued. "I did not know this man. I have never had a conversation with him, ever."

"I have never felt more emasculated, more objectified; I was horrified," Crews said. "People need to be held accountable."
