11 Stars Accused of Sexual Harassment Before Weinstein Scandal

The actor says "Harvey Weinstein is not the only perpetrator" of sexual harassment in Hollywood.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Terry Crews said Tuesday he can "understand and empathize with those who have remained silent" about sexual assault and harassment in Hollywood -- because he did too.

With so many female stars bravely sharing their stories of sexual misconduct at the hands of Harvey Weinstein and other men in the industry (which we'll dub the Weinstein Effect), the former football player revealed he too was groped by a "high level Hollywood executive" in 2016.

"This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME," he tweeted. "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 (sic)."

"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 (sic)," he continued. "I was going to kick his ass right then— but I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear. '240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho' would be the headline the next day."

He then explained why he didn't want to talk about it at first.

Stars including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Mira Sorvino and Asia Argento are among the many women who accused Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment.

Other women, including Kathie Lee Gifford, have been emboldened to share their harassment experiences with other men in the industry, too.
