“Terry Crews is through playing games.
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and former professional NFL player took to Twitter yesterday to call out music mogul Russell Simmons. Crews posted an email Simmons allegedly sent him, urging him to drop his recent sexual assault charges against high-powered Hollywood agent Adam Venit. (Crews claims that Venit, a high-powered Hollywood agent who represents top clients such as Emma Stone, Adam Sandler, and Eddie Murphy, made a series of lewd gestures and then physically groped him at a party last year.)
According to the screenshot, Simmons’s email said the following:
“Did he ever apologize Give the agent a pass ask that he be reinstated
With great love, all things are possible”
To which Crews issued this remarkable response:
NO ONE GETS A PASS
Crews’ reply is not only brilliant–it’s an excellent demonstration of emotional intelligence,the ability to make emotions work for you and not against you.”*
