Hollywood has certainly been shaken since the sexual assault claims against Harvey Weinstein have been released, and the initial New York Times report has quickly picked up steam as more and more members of Hollywood elite step forward. 

Recently, Terry Crews took to Twitter to share his own account of sexual assault after being moved by the many stories coming to light in connection with the Weinstein allegations, according to Vulture

In the series of 16 tweets, Crews recounts an incident that involved an unnamed Hollywood executive groping his genitals while at an industry party last year. Naturally, he wanted to react, but instantly knew the ramifications of such actions as a black man — and a very large one at that. He envisioned the hypothetical headline, “240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho.” 

Overall, Crews' brave tweets were in total solidarity of those victims who have experienced something similar, whether that be in Hollywood or otherwise. “Hollywood is not the only business where this happens, and to the casualties of this behavior — you are not alone.”
