Terry Crews Says Mostly Black Women Supported Him After His Sexual Assault
While he anticipated support from his Black brethren, actor and former NFL baller Terry Crews says that most of the support received following outing his sexual assault abuser, Adam Venit, instead came from Black women.
Subsequent to him coming forward during his own #MeToo movement moment, Black me actually judged and ridiculed the actor, leaving him “surprised” to learn that Black women instead picked up the slack.
Additionally, as he appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Crews stated, “I have to say this: the people that surprised me the most were Black women. Black men did not want any part of it. All my support came from Black women, straight up. And that’s kind of wild. It shocked me. It shocked my family.”
In addition, he says, “I thought, here I am as a Black man saying some things that we’ve all been through, and a lot of guys [were] just like, ‘Man, you’re weak. You’re sorry. You should have hit him..should have knocked him out..should have did all this stuff. Black women were like, ‘No, no. It doesn’t work like that.’ And I was shocked at the split within my own community. It was deep.”
