The frank and candid conversation with GMA host Michael Strahan focused on the events at a Hollywood party when William Morris Endeavor executive Adam Venit, is alleged by Crews to have made leering and suggestive faces at Crews before grabbing the former National Football League star's genitals.

Venit is Sandler, Eddie Murphy and Sylvester Stallone's agent.

This morning, Terry sat down with Good Morning America to discuss the incident, even more, saying he's never felt "more emasculated" than when Adam made his inappropriate move on him. "Then he comes back again", Crews went on.

Crews was a walk-on at WMU who eventually won an athletic scholarship and played on WMU's 1988 MAC Championship squad as a defensive end.

Crews says during the party, Venit was making lewd mouth gestures toward him before walking over to Crews.

He has played a wide variety of roles in movies and on TV-series and also had his own reality show for a while. "But this is the deal, my wife told me three years earlier, 'Terry, you can never handle any situation like this with violence".

'I was like, "Adam, what is wrong with your boy".

The Los Angeles Police Department is also investigating after Crews filed a report last week.


"People need to be held accountable, Mike", Crews told Strahan. "I knew of him and I knew just because it's an agency thing. Adam, what is wrong with your boy?' And he looked like he didn't understand, because it was freakish to both of us".

"What kind of man would I be to tell my kids, 'If someone touches you where you don't want to be touched, tell someone, ' and then I don't do it?", he said.

Crews said in one tweet that Venit called him to apologize but "never really explained why he did what he did". This exact thing happened to me. He keeps coming over to me.

Crews compared the way he and other alleged victims of sexual misconduct feel when abused by a person in power. "You can be baited and pulled"'.

The former athlete said despite being so angry that he "almost ripped the steering wheel off" of his vehicle as he drove home, his wife reassured him and told him she was proud of him. "You're diggin" tunnels with spoons, you're trying to find a way out, and you get out and then you finally find freedom and somebody says, 'It must not be that bad.

"I will not be shamed".

"If I would have just retaliated in defense, I would be under the jail right now and that's one thing I knew being a large African American man in America, I would immediately be seen as a thug, but I'm not a thug".
