Terry Crews Exits WME After Sexual Assault Accusation Against Exec

Terry Crews has exited WME after recently accusing a Hollywood executive of sexual assault, TheWrap has learned.

This follows the head of the agency’s motion picture group, Adam Venit, being placed on leave last week amid investigation into an allegation of sexual harassment. Crews was not one of Venit’s clients.

The actor, who stars on Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” wrote on social media on Oct. 10 that he was “groped” at an industry event last year by a “high-level Hollywood executive.”

“My wife n I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high-level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates,” Crews tweeted. He later wrote in the thread: “I understand and empathize with those who have remained silent. But Harvey Weinstein is not the only perpetrator.”

Crews has yet to pick up a new agent and continues to be managed by 3 Arts.
