Crews explained in details about the incident that took place at a Hollywood function in February 2016, when he met Venit for the first time, and as per him, their encounter wasn't so comfortable!
Terry divulged that Venit made unwanted 'inappropriate tongue movements' which he found bizarre,
“He’s basically staring at me and sticking his tongue out and just [doing] overtly sexual tongue moves. I’m looking like, ‘Is this a joke? I don’t understand.’ It was actually so bizarre.”
Crews added, Venit allegedly 'squeezed Crew's genitals' along with more sexual tongue gestures when Crews attempted to shake his hand.
“I jumped back like, ‘Hey, hey, dude, what are you doing?!”
But, Venit's acts didn't stop there! He groped Crews for the second time, and despite Crews backing him off, Venit continued "laughing and giggling." Crews said he felt 'horrified,'
“I’ve never felt more emasculated, more objectified. I was horrified”.
Terry further expressed that he talked about the incident to actor Adam Sandler, who was also present at the party but, Adam too was confused about it. Crews, who thought he didn't want to be seen as a "thug," left the party with his wife after half an hour.
Before the interview, Crews uploaded a series of sixteen tweets on October 10, talking about his harassment experience, mentioning that the sexual assault scandals against Harvey Weinstein helped him to share his story as well,
This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME. (1/Cont.)— terrycrews (@terrycrews) October 10, 2017
Terry has now left the matters up to the court, as he filed a police report with the Los Angeles Police Department against Adam Venit on November 8. Terry recently tweeted saying he is now free on November 15.
However, Venit is yet to share his response on the matter!
