Terry Crews, who attended the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards on November 9, 2017 in Beverly Hills, California, shared his story of sexual assault on Wednesday.

On Wednesday's Good Morning America, Crews explained the whole ordeal was giving him post-traumatic stress disorder as he had had his privates "groped" by a "high level Hollywood executive" at an event a year ago and during the interview he went into more detail about the incident.

"He's basically staring at me and he's sticking his tongue out and, you know, it's overtly sexual kind of tongue move... it's a party".

"Back in February 2016 I was assaulted by Adam Vinet, who is the head of the motion picture department at William Morris Endeavor (WME), one of the biggest agencies in the world", he recalled, naming Adam Sandler, who is represented by Vinet, as another guest at the party.

That's when the situation escalated from unwanted sexual glances to an alleged full-on physical assault by Adam Venit. I went over to Adam (Sandler) right there, like, "Adam, Come get your boy". "I really got forceful, pushed him back, he bumps into all the other partygoers and he starts giggling and laughing".

'I go, "Dude, what are you doing?"

Crews alleges that the behavior continued. I was horrified. I went over to Adam [Sandler] right then and there and was like, 'Adam, come get your boy! "And he just won't stop!" Let me tell you a lot of times go, why didn't you come forward sooner. "What is his problem?'"

"I have never had a conversation with him ever", he added.

According to Terry, Sandler didn't know what to say because it was "bizarre to both of us".

Venit, who has four children with his wife Trina, is now on leave from the agency as they investigate the matter. Last week, he parted ways with William Morris Endeavor, a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it confirmed to USA TODAY, a day after filing a report with the Los Angeles Police Department.

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star said his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, who was present during the incident, was the only thing that kept him from getting physical. "This is the deal about Hollywood. You're diggin" tunnels with spoons, you're trying to find a way out, and you get out and then you finally find freedom and somebody says, 'It must not be that bad. You are a target. This exact thing happened to me. "I did nothing wrong, nothing", he said. "Let me tell you something, it freed me".

"If I would have just retaliated in defense, I would be under the jail right now and that's one thing I knew being a large African American man in America, I would immediately be seen as a thug, but I'm not a thug". "I have totally said I will not be shamed".
