Terry Crews detailed his sexual assault by a high-powered Hollywood agent on Good Morning America, one month after first revealing his allegations on Twitter.
'Back in February 2016, I was assaulted by Adam Venit, head of the motion picture department at William Morris Endeavor. One of the biggest agencies in the world, period,' said Crews.
The Brooklyn 911 star went on to explain that he did not even know the agent, whose clients include Adam Sandler, Sylvester Stallone and Eddie Murphy.
'I'm looking at him and he's basically staring at me and he's sticking his tongue out and, you know, it's overtly sexual kind of tongue moves and I'm saying, "It's a party. It's packed." The whole thing,' explained Crews.
'He comes over to me. I stick my hand out and he takes his hand and puts it and squeezes my genitals. And I jump back like, "hey, hey "and he's like licking his tongue out and all this stuff.'

Famed clients: Venit is a William Morris Endeavor agent who reps the likes of clients include Adam Sandler, Sylvester Stallone (above with Venit's wife at the 2016 Golden Globes) and Eddie Murphy
Allegations: Crews claims that at a February 2016 party Venit grabbed his genitals and stuck out his tongue in an 'overtly sexual' way (Venit and his wife Trina above)
Crews said that the assault did not end at that point however, and continued to go on in front of the other guests.
'I go, "Dude, what are you doing? What are you doing?" And then he comes back again and he just won't stop and then I really got forceful, pushed him back,' said Crews.
'He bumps into all the other partygoers and he starts giggling and laughing and let me tell you – I have never felt more emasculated, more objectified. I was horrified.'
Crews went on to say: 'I went over to Adam [Sandler] right then and there [and said], "Come get your boy. What is – what is his problem?"
The former football star, who broke onto the Hollywood scene after years of bit parts with his role in the critically acclaimed series Everybody Hates Chris, has since fired William Morris and filed a police report against Venit.
Venit, who has four children with his wife Trina, is currently on leave from the agency as they investigate the matter.
The Los Angeles Police Department is also investigating after Crews filed a report last week.
The night of the incident however, it was Sandler that Crews approached hoping to diffuse the situation.
'I was like, "Adam, what is wrong with your boy." He didn't understand. It was bizarre to both of us,' said Crews, who at that point was having trouble controlling his anger.
'I looked at him – it was rage. And when I say rage, I felt like I could punch a hole in his head. But this is the deal – my wife told me, three years earlier, she said, "Terry, you can never handle any situation like this with violence. You are a target. You can be baited and pulled."'
He then told host Michael Strahan that as a black man, he believed that the blame would be entirely placed on him if he lashed out at Venit.
'If you react, physically – and let me tell you something, I've done it before, but this is the deal, when I grabbed her hand and I left that party, we were only there for like a half hour, I almost ripped the steering wheel off and she just kept saying, "I'm proud of you. I'm proud of you."'

Support system: Crews said it was his wife Rebecca who helped him through the situation by keeping him from physically attacking Venit
Crews then expressed how grateful he was that Rebecca, his wife of 27 years, was by his side that night.
'She calmed me down because she was the one who told me that this kind of thing would happen and that you could be baited,' he said.
'If I would have just retaliated in defense I would be in jail right now. 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.'
Strahan then asked about the police report, to which Crews responded: 'You know, people need to be held accountable, Mike. This is the deal about Hollywood. And it's an abuse of power.
He continued: 'This guy, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, and he looked at me at the end as if, you know, who is going to believe you?'
Crews also said that he was only able to come forward now because of the recent movement of victims naming the sexual predators that attacked them.
'I put it in the back of my head and I understood why women everywhere had to let it go, but let me tell you when the Weinstein thing started happening I got PTSD,' said Crews.
'I was going, oh my god, this exact thing happened to me. I understand why they won't come forward.'
Crews then explained his silence the same way that the more than 100 woman who have accused the likes of Weinstein and James Toback have over the past few weeks.
'When a person of power breaks that boundary and violates that boundary you're a prisoner of war immediately because you're trying to figure out with is the right time to come out,' said Crews.
'I'm free. I finally got free and this is the thing a lot of people just don't understand and they end up blaming the victim. And I have totally said I will not be shamed. I will not be shamed. I did nothing wrong.'
