"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" actor and former football player Terry Crews has joined the list of stars opening up on sexual assault.

Crews tweeted on Tuesday after several days of stories about Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Crews' story about an unnamed executive groping his privates widens the story beyond men assaulting women. It also reveals more reasons why many victims only tell close friends/family instead of "coming forward" at the time to press charges.

Fans have been reaching out to thank Crews for sharing his experience, and adding more perspective:

Stars have been speaking up to share their own stories of abuse, in this case by Harvey Weinstein, but as Crews notes, he is not the only one out there abusing his status, he's just the one standing in for all of the others right now.
