    Post Adam Venit WME Agen accused of sexual Misconduct on actor Terry Crews

    Terry Crews is a hulk of a man, standing at 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing in at 240 pounds. He was a linebacker in the National Football League in the early 1990s, who parlayed his sparkling personality and comic talent into a successful acting career.

    Moviegoers likely know Crews from his roles in absurdist comedies like “White Chicks” and “Blended,” while television fans might recognize him from “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” or “Everybody Hates Chris.”

    As intimidating, famous and beloved as the actor is, he wants everyone to know that even he felt afraid to come forward with his own story of being sexually harassed last year by a powerful man in Hollywood.

    He didn’t want to be “ostracized,” he says.

    He was a mid-level actor and his alleged assailant was a powerful Hollywood agent with the capacity to potentially squash his career.

    Crews also didn’t think many people would believe him, he said on Twitter.

    But after the New York Times published an exposé on Oct. 5 alleging that film producer Harvey Weinstein used his position to sexually harass and assault aspiring young women, he chose to open up.

    Crews alleged that talent agent Adam Venit groped his genitals at a Hollywood party. Crews acknowledges the obvious question: Why wouldn’t a man of his muscle just wallop any predator? The actor wanted to fight him, to strike back, he has said, but feared that the situation would be misperceived since he is a large black man. He didn’t want to end up in jail or lose his career.

    Crews’s perspective adds a crucial dimension to the national conversation about sexual misconduct perpetrated by powerful men: that victims feel trapped because they are professionally beholden to someone higher up the ladder, who uses his power against them. In that sense, physical size doesn’t matter. In Crews’s case, being black in America played a role, too.
    This is one of a few cases where a man is listed as the rape victim and some of the outlets are saying that Adam Venit the person named as the accused has returned to WME.

    He should have kicked that little "flamboyant boy's" arse. A good old fashion arse whooping would have solved this situation quick. I know what I would do!

    Wow Terry Crews was victim blamed by Russell Simmons and now Karma has hit Russell Simmons as soon as 5 women came forward against him.

    This incident came into play as soon as Crews was in the process of suing Adam Venit for rape allegations on him.

    Another update but at the same time its not shocking to hear that allegations of retaliation are at play here between WME/Venit and Crews while the Lawsuit is being processed here.

    Here is another update on the Adam Venit Lawsuit

    The statute of limitations for misdemeanors expires after one year.
    Terry Crews' criminal complaint against William Morris Endeavor agent Adam Venit has been declined by the Los Angeles County city attorney, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

    "The matter was referred to our office and was subsequently declined due to the lapse in statute of limitations for misdemeanor cases," a representative for Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said.

    The alleged incident, in which Crews claims Venit "squeezed [his] genitals," occurred in February, 2016.

    In the wake of October 2017 reports from The New York Times and New Yorker detailing sexual misconduct by media mogul Harvey Weinstein and the ensuing #MeToo movement, Crews tweeted about the incident, but didn't name Venit.

    WME placed Venit on a one-month, unpaid suspension at the end of October. Crews filed a police report over the incident on Nov. 8, 2017.
