Crews explained in a series of tweets in October that he had been groped by a Hollywood boss - in front of his wife - while at an event as recently as previous year, although he refused to name to exec. "My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was insane. My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was insane", he wrote at the time. '"240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho" would be the headline the next day. Crews wrote on his Twitter account he was at a function with his wife when the Hollywood executive came over and allegedly grabbed his "privates" and the alleged abuser then "grinned like a j-k" when Crews questioned what he was doing. "I let it go. And I understand why many women who this happens to let it go". Who's going 2 believe you? "(Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized?(No)".

Crews declined to name the executive, and said he has empathy for "those who have remained silent". Hollywood is not the only business where this happens, and to the casualties of this behaviour - you are not alone. He added that he hoped his coming forward "will deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless".
