AM-1510759186

Actor, retired National Football League player and former WMU Bronco Terry Crews is among the latest to go public with his story of sexual harassment in Hollywood.

Terry Crews speaks out on "Good Morning America" about an alleged incident in which he says a "high-level Hollywood executive" groped him at a party.

Talking with host Michael Strahan, Terry explains how Adam is basically everyone's agent and is "connected to probably everyone" in the business.

The former National Football League player told Strahan that years ago his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, told him not to be violent because he's a target and people will try to "bait" him as a "large African-American man". I have never felt more emasculated, more objectified. "I'm an artist", he said, noting his wife was crucial to calming him down.

Hollywood agent Adam Venit attend the Yahoo! Sports Presents A Day Of Champions event at the Sports Museum of Los Angeles in California.

Crews said Venit, who he had never met before, stared at him from a distance and stuck out his tongue in an "overtly sexual" manner before approaching him.

Crews was with his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, at the party past year when he claims Venit began making tongue moves at him. It's packed... I'm looking, is this a joke? "When I looked at him, it was rage", he said. He didn't understand. It was freaky to both of us, ' said Crews, who at that point was having trouble controlling his anger.

On "Good Morning America", Crews also addressed how women in the industry coming forward to name their abusers had compelled him to talk about the incident and his own feelings of powerlessness.

"I stick my hand out and he literally takes his hand and puts it, squeezes my genitals", he recalled. "I jumped back, like, 'Hey!" Let me tell you a lot of times go, why didn't you come forward sooner.

Crews says Venit persisted before Crews eventually shoved Venit away from him and into other guests at the party. "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. "What is his problem?'" According to Crews, Sandler didn't understand either because it was "bizarre to both of us".

He added: "My wife is right there".

Leaving the party after about 30 minutes, Crews' wife calmed him down in the vehicle by repeating, "I'm proud of you".

'When a person of power breaks that boundary and violates that boundary you're a prisoner of war immediately because you're trying to figure out with is the right time to come out, ' said Crews.

"I will not be shamed".
