Terry Crews took a break from his apologizing for standard male behavior videos to join the ranks of celebrities to disavow Harvey Weinstein in no uncertain terms. It now behooves all the people covering up or working with Weinstein for years to flee the sinking ship. A ship's not a bad analogy for Harvey Weinstein. Same with the fleeing rats.
While every female celebrity can easily slip in a victimization story of their own to gain admission to the moral outrage VIP tent, the guys are having to work over time to restore their bonafides. It's hard for a man to completely disavow being shady with the ladies since they've all done it. Even Terry Crews at some point in his past. So Crews threw in a twist. He too has been the victim of a studio executives sexual assault:
"This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME. My wife n I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates. Jumping back I said What are you doing?! My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk.”
For the record, I've witnessed this type of important man on male behavior multiple times at Hollywood functions. See something, say something is for pussies. Terry Crews is built like a steroid freak linebacker. There's no chance his rapist weighed more than a buck fifty.
Crews claims this very size differential is the reason he didn't punch the guy in the face. Nice fake masculinity recovery:
"’240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho’ would be the headline the next day.”
Umm, in what paper exactly? Because that's not even close to a realistic scenario. Nor the reason you didn't punch him. Every guy in town knows not to out the super powerful gay mafia. Maybe Crews does have PTSD. Though I wouldn't give myself a psychological diagnosis shared with soldiers under fire simply because a little dude gave you a reach around after one too many apple-tinis.
If you thought Lena Dunham's open letter in the New York Times about how often powerful men in Hollywood sexually objectified her was the height of Weinstein-Gate ludicrous humble-bragging, think again. Terry Crews took the cake. And now a short studio exec is licking it off his dick.
