LOS ANGELES — Terry Crews names his alleged attacker and compares being sexually assaulted to being a prisoner of war in an appearance Wednesday on “Good Morning America .”
Crews told host Michael Strahan that he “never felt more emasculated” than when a powerful Hollywood agent groped him at a party last year and says last month’s news of sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein triggered an episode of post-traumatic stress.
Crews confirmed that he recently filed a police report against a top agent at William Morris Endeavor. A message seeking comment from the agency was not immediately returned Wednesday.
The star of TV’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” says he felt empowered to share his experience after so many women came forward with allegations against Weinstein. Crews told Strahan he “will not be shamed.”
