Terry Crews Names Alleged Abuser As WME Executive Adam Venit

Crews told GMA's Michael Strahan that Venit groped him while he was at an event past year with his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, and Adam Sandler.

William Morris Endeavor confirmed to ABC News that "Adam Venit was suspended following the internal investigation into the matter". Los Angeles police officer Sal Ramirez said that Crews had filed a report on November 8.

During an interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday morning, the actor and former football player said that Venit, one of the senior talent agents at William Morris Endeavor, touched his genitals at an industry party in February 2016.

"This is the thing-I did not know this man", Crews explained. Now this is the thing - I did not know this man. I have never had a conversation with him, ever. OK? Crews said. Crews claims Venit then groped him a second time. Crews says he attempted to shake Venit's hand, but Venit "squeezed [Crews'] genitals" while making suggestive tongue gestures.

Ventura sacked after WC qualifying failure
With Juventus, Conte won three consecutive top flights titles in Italy before taking over the national side ahead of Euro 2016. Italy lost 1-0 on aggregate in their qualification play-off with Sweden after finishing second to Spain in the group phase.

Crews said "I went over to Adam [Sandler] right then and there and said, 'Man, come get your boy". And then he comes back again and he just won't stop and then I really got forceful, pushed him back, ' said Crews.

Good Morning America, Crews explained the whole ordeal was giving him post-traumatic stress disorder as he had had his privates "groped" by a "high level Hollywood executive" at an event a year ago and during the interview he went into more detail about the incident. I don't understand.' It was actually so weird.

The Expendables star added that last month's news of sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein triggered an episode of post-traumatic stress, prompting him to file a police report against Venit. "When a person of power breaks that boundary and violates that boundary, you're a prisoner of war", he said. "What is his problem?'" Crews said he and Sandler thought Venit's alleged behavior was "bizarre". "This is the deal about Hollywood".

Crews, 49, became particularly animated when expressing disgust at how such abuses of power thwart the aspirations of innocent victims. "I'm sitting there like, it's a party, it's packed.and I'm looking like, is this a joke?" Because you're trying to figure out when is the right time to come out? This exact thing was happening to me!' I understand why they won't come forward.

Last week in Philadelphia, Osweiler tossed two picks and completed just 50 percent of his passes in a 51-23 loss. New England's special teams gave the Patriots a jump-start and Tom Brady kept it going offensively from there.

'I was like, "Adam, what is wrong with your boy".

Still, he said that he refuses to let that particular narrative take over: "I have totally said, 'I will not be shamed.' I will not be shamed".

Despite wanting to retaliate with his fists, Crews heeded his wife's earlier advice to resist ever responding with violence and the two left the party.

Crews also credited his wife with keeping him calm after the alleged assault.
