The actor says he was groped by an unnamed male assailant who was a held a position of authority in Hollywood. Crews tweets describe how he was at an industry party last year when the man groped him causing him to almost lash out but he stopped himself when he realized how it would look, "240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho."

Crews say he told the man's coworker about the assault and he has issued an apology the next day. He didn't pursue the issue further out of fears it would negatively impact his career until now. Crews said he empathized with Weinstein's latest series of victim's and understands what they went through, "Hollywood is not the only business where this happens, and to the casualties of this behavior — you are not alone."
