Days after the allegations against Harvey Weinstein first broke, the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” actor shared that the emerging reports were traumatizing.“Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME,” Crews wrote, before he went on to describe how a “high level Hollywood executive” groped his “privates” during a party.

 

“Jumping back I said What are you doing?! My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk,” Crews tweeted.

“He called me the next day with an apology but never really explained why he did what he did,” according to Crews.
