Terry Crews Tweets About Sexual Harassment Experience In Wake of Weinstein Allegations

Terry Crews has broken his silence about his own experience with sexual harassment.

The comedic actor and star of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Everybody Hates Chris issued a series of tweets on Tuesday afternoon about his own experiences with sexual harassment in response to the number of actresses who have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment against film producer Harvey Weinstein.

Crews began the series of tweets by talking about an incident at a media function where a producer grabbed his genitals.

However, Crews said, he didn’t say anything about the assault because as a black man, he felt that it may end with him in jail.

Crews said that, like many women who have spoken out in the past few days, he decided not to press the issue for fear of losing work.

After bringing up the potential consequences for speaking out, Crews also stood in solidarity with all those have come forward in the past few days. He also said that his coming out as a man who experienced sexual harassment allows others the freedom to do so, as well.

Crews, thanks for coming forward and we hope your words inspire others to do so, as well.

If you are experiencing or have experienced sexual assault, you can call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE. The hotline is run by the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network.
