Daytime talk show host takes confusing position on Crews coming forward with sexual assault allegation against top William Morris Endeavor agent Adam Venit.
"I was asked in my meeting this morning, do I think it was brave of him to come out. I said, 'No, it's not brave, he's just talking," Williams said on her daytime talk show Wednesday while discussing Crews' "Good Morning America" interview that aired earlier that day.
But to make her thoughts on the matter more confusing, she added, "It may have a really negative effect on his career, do you know what I mean? Being all black and being all chatty and this agent... He named names y'all. Terry's going in."
According to Crews, the powerful agent grabbed and squeezed his genitals when they met for the first time at a WME party in February 2016. Venit, who is currently on leave from his job as head of WME's motion picture group, represents A-list actors including Sylvester Stallone, Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler.
Williams felt she had to remind her viewers that while Crews' groping story is disgusting, the allegation will probably just get swept under the rug because Crews is black and Venit is white.
"The agent is on leave and I hate to talk color, but he probably got a very, very lovely shoebox full of money from William Morris, this is in my mind, to just disappear for a moment," she said.
"I'm glad Terry came forward to expose, unfortunately I feel that in the race war that's going on in this country still, Terry will suffer," she added. "But good for you Terry and shame on you bald man."
