It would be nice if male on male sexual assault could be reviewed by referees like Zack Ertz’s 4th quarter Super Bowl LII catch. You could easily refer to the replay and determine if the man who allegedly groped Terry Crews had complete control of the ball. Or both of them in this case. Hollywood agent Adam Venit just filed an official denial of ever getting a handful of Terry Crews’ genitalia. He’s confident the judge will clear him of any wrongdoing because Crews’ jewels weren’t injured and his conduct wasn’t of a sexual nature. Imagine if that defense could be utilized by everyone accused of every sexual assault. So many assailants would get off the hook as long as you leave everything you grab unbruised and claim all touching was for research and not getting your rocks off.
Crews accused Venit, a top agent with William Morris Endeavor, of groping his genitals in the middle of a party in 2016.
Venit’s plan b just in case his first excuse falls through is to blame his behavior on the alcohol. Unfortunately for him, only women are allowed to use inebriation as a valid excuse for having zero accountability for their actions when it comes to horny horseplay after the fifth Heineken. I don’t think anyone ever expected someone the stature of Crews to be a victim of sexual assault but the unexpected does happen every now and then like the Eagles actually beating Brady in a Super Bowl.
