Terry Crews Compares Hollywood to Working on a Slave Plantation

Terry Crews

Last year, Terry Crews called out  influential Hollywood agent Adam Venit for groping him at an industry event in front of his wife. The Brooklyn-Nine-Nine actor attempted to confront Venit in court, but his request for a trial was denied.

Crews recently spoke to Buzzfeed about the state of Hollywood, comparing the entertainment business to a slave plantation.

“People don’t understand that Hollywood is a very violent place. The best way to put it is that it’s like a plantation… They cut your head off so the next person doesn’t speak.”

He continued, “”[They] shame you so you feel like you gotta hide in the house,” he said. “[But] once you get rid of shame, you get to step off the slave plantation. And I get to be here. This is a good thing.”
