Terry Crews told Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan that he will not be ashamed, that he did nothing wrong as he recounts the alleged sexual assault done to him in 2016 at a party by Hollywood exec Adam Venit.
“He’s connected to probably everyone I know in the business,” Crews said. “I did not know this man. I have never had a conversation with him, ever. … The first time I ever had an interaction with him was at this event.”
Crews said Venit, stared at him from a distance and stuck out his tongue in an “overtly sexual” manner before approaching him.”
“I stick my hand out and he literally takes his hand and puts it, squeezes my genitals,” he recalled. “And I jump back like, ‘Hey, hey!’ … I go, ‘Dude, what are you doing?’”
Crews said that Venit came back…
“And then he comes back again and he just won’t stop. And then I really got forceful, pushed him back. He bumps into all the other partygoers and he starts giggling and laughing,” he said on “GMA.” “I have never felt more emasculated, more objectified. I was horrified. I went over to Adam [Sandler] right then and there and said, ‘Man, come get your boy. What is his problem?’”
Crews told Strahan that he will not be shamed!
“I will not be shamed. I did nothing wrong. Nothing,” he said. “What kind of man would I be to tell my kids, ‘If someone touches you where you don’t want to, tell someone,’ if I’m not doing it myself?”
