Terry Crews says the Hollywood agent who allegedly groped him last year has been given a pass to return to work after the comedic actor personally wrote to the agency he works for.
Crews, the 49-year-old star of the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” sitcom, revealed that William Morris Endeavor executive Adam Venit groped him, causing the actor to feel violated. While Crews filed a police report against Venit last month, the agent was only given a 30-day suspension.
Now, Crews is publicly sharing how Ari Emanuel, the co-CEO of the William Morris Endeavor agency that employs Venit, dismissed a letter sent to him by the actor. In 2006, Emanuel wrote a blog for The Huffington Post where he called for the entertainment industry to hold actor Mel Gibson accountable for making anti-semitic remarks.
Crews decided to edit that piece and substitute the name “Venit” for “Gibson” to show Emanuel how the principles in his letter apply to his employee’s behavior.
“Copy of the actual @HuffPost letter I gave @AriEmanuel in which he DEMANDED Mel Gibson be blacklisted for anti-Semitic remarks. I exchanged Adam Venit for Mel, and sexual assault for anti-Semitic,” Crews revealed, pasting the letter to Twitter Monday. “He said ‘it’s different’ and handed the letter back to me.”
The agency demoted Venit from being the head of WME’s Motion Picture Group, to serving as an agent at the company without his former title. Earlier this month, Deadline reported that Crews parted ways with the agency.
The comedic actor previously detailed the alleged assault that he suffered at the hands of Venit when speaking on “Good Morning America” earlier this month.
