Terry Crews Says His Mission Is To Give Sexual Assault Survivors ‘Strength

Terry Crews wants men to hold one another accountable when it comes to sexual assault and harassment.

Time included the 49-year-old actor among “The Silence Breakers” who were named the magazine’s Person of the Year on Wednesday morning. In an interview with Time, Crews discussed why he came forward with his story of sexual assault and why more men need to lend their voices to the conversation.

Last month, Crews accused Hollywood executive Adam Venit of groping him at a party the actor was attending with his wife. On Wednesday, he announced he’s suing Venit.

Crews felt compelled to share his story about Venit after he read some of the victim-blaming comments directed at movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s accusers, he told Time.

“I was really angry because these women were being discounted. These women were being discarded,” Crews said.

“I did have to let these women know they weren’t alone. And that I understood,” he said. “My whole mission was to give them strength. Don’t accept the shame that people are giving you. Because that’s what it was. They were being shamed. They were being victimized again. I just couldn’t stand for it.”
