Actor Terry Crews has added his voice to the countless female stars claiming sexual abuse by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein – saying he too was inappropriately touched by another Hollywood big wig.

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star, 49, took to Twitter to share his story because he wanted everyone to know that Harvey wasn’t the only perpetrator in Hollywood.

“This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME…” Terry 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.”

Terry continued, “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.”

As for why he didn’t come forward – Terry says that he was worried about the way the media would spin the story.

’240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho’ would be the headline the next day,” he said, adding he would’ve landed in jail.

Instead Terry said he left the party with his wife.

The actor said that the next day the unnamed executive apologised for what he did but never really explained the reason behind his behaviour.

Terry said he’s hoping his story will help stop another perpetrator in their tracks, and give confidence to victims to come forward.

"I let it go," Terry wrote. "And I understand why many who this happens to let it go.

"Who’s going 2 believe you? ( few) What r the repercussions?(many) Do u want 2 work again? (Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized?(No)," he wrote.

He ended his story by telling followers that Harvey Weinstein "is not the only perpetrator".
