Terry Crews Releases Apology From Agent He Says Groped Him

Terry Crews and Adam Venit

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor says Adam Venit grabbed his genitals at a 2016 party. In his apology, Venit indirectly says the incident happened.

Terry Crews, one of the most vocal male voices of the #MeToo movement, released an apology letter from an agent who groped him at a 2016 event.

Crews says a Hollywood executive walked up to him at a party and grabbed his "privates," according to an October 2017 tweet from him. Crews's wife was present during the incident, and Venit just "grinned" after it, according to the tweet. Crews later named the man as Adam Venit, a longtime William Morris Endeavor talent agent.

Venit was placed on leave, but returned to work in late November, according to Deadline. Venit then apparently sent Crews an apology letter in March 2018, but Crews wouldn't accept it until Venit left WME. Venit's last day with the agency was Sunday and he tweeted out the letter on Friday, adding #Accountability.

Venit's letter never mentions the alleged groping or humiliation of Crews, but speaks of the agent's efforts to become a better person and commends Crews for speaking out.

"I believe positive light was always your motive and intention when you came out with your tweet," Venit writes. "To help facilitate change and make a better world and a better business. I am coming to terms with myself as to why I behaved the way I have: fear, stress, and insecurity. These are all things that I'm working on." Read the full letter below.
