One of the wackiest post-Weinstein stories has to be the guy who grabbed Terry Crews’ junk. In front of his wife too. Yes, that Terry Crews (GRAB THIS! Terry Crews Takes It To Man Who Grabbed His Bits and Russell Simmons Orders Terry Crews to Forgive Groper. But It Gets Worse…). As in built like a brick sh*thouse Terry Crews. And not in a “Trump hates Haiti” way. In a “can rip your arms off and beat you with them” way.
But, the guy who went for Crews’ “Old Spice stick” says it’s all good. It wasn’t meant to be sexual.
Adam Venit, a big Hollywood agent at William Morris Endeavor, just filed his response to actor Terry’s lawsuit, in which Terry alleged Adam grabbed his genitals in the middle of a party.
Adam issued a general denial, adding Terry can’t win the lawsuit because he didn’t suffer any injury and, on top of that, none of his conduct was sexual.
Sources connected to Adam say he had too much to drink that night and the groping was horseplay, for which he apologized to Terry the next day.
Ah, so it was a “platonic” grab of the ol’ kielbasa.
Now, we’ve all had times where we hit the sauce a little too hard at a gathering. But I know of no guy who’s ever drank enough to fondle another man’s tackle for kicks. Unless of course, that guy was into that sort of thing. Or his name was Kevin Spacey. Not to mention, if this sleevy pervboy were to squeeze Kate Upton’s chesticles, “but I was drunk” would never hold up as an excuse.
It’s going to be interesting watching this guy’s legal defenses moving forward. So we’re clear, I’m still a big fan of due process. Not so much trial by social media. Everyone has a right to make a case for themselves.
I’m just not sure the usual “I was drunk,” “my accuser just wants publicity,” and “you should have seen what Terry Crews was wearing” will fly anymore.
