Multiple Reports of Sexual Harassment in Hollywood
What the heck is happening in Hollywood? Everywhere I turn there is news of someone reporting sexual harassment in Hollywood. Steven Segal is accused of exposing himself to De Rossi who is married to the talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres during an audition and Julianna Margulies said she was sexually harassed by the actor. You can read more about this in a article published by Daily Beast.
Deadline.com also published an article saying “Terry Crews Files LAPD Report Over Alleged Sexual Assault.”
Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews has filed a crime report alleging a sexual assault that he says occurred at a Hollywood event last year. Los Angeles Police confirm to Deadline that Crews met with officers today to file the complaint.
“We can confirm that a crime report was completed at the LAPD Hollywood division station,” said an LAPD spokesman, who said he could not reveal the name of the alleged assailant.
The police report comes a month after Crews tweeted about the alleged assault by an unidentified “high-level Hollywood executive.” “My wife and I were at a Hollywood function last year and a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates. Jumping back, I said, ‘What are you doing?!’ My wife saw everything and we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk.”
Crews is a WME client. Adam Venit, head of the agency’s motion picture group and one of its most senior agents, has been on leave as WME investigates sexual harassment allegations made by a client. Venit was identified in reports as the exec Crews was referring to in the red-carpet incident that the actor says took place in full view of his wife.
Crews is the latest in a wave of accusers who have come forward or gone to the police in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal to report allegations of sexual assault and sexual harassment.
