Men also suffer mistreatment in Hollywood.

The appalling law of silence has been abolished in Hollywood. The evidence of successive order of several tens of women and actresses, all of which have been cited as a workaholic producer Harvey Weinstein (sexual harassment, fondling, inappropriate and aggression, exhibitionism, and rape have been listed in the long list of offences and crimes committed with impunity over the last three decades), the stories of some men are also made known.

This is the case of James Van Der Beek, who was keen to share his bad experience on Twitter. Saluting the courage of the victims who are out of their imposed silence, the star of Dawson denounced the ‘unacceptable’ behaviour of Harvey Weinstein, before stressing that the sexual predators were diverse and varied in the cinema industry.

It is as well that the actor of 40-year-old has revealed for the first time that he had been sexually harassed by men when he was “younger”. “I did catch the ass by older men and powerful, to me, they were circling and I had conversations inappropriate sexual. (…) I understand the shame is unjustified, the feelings of helplessness and the inability to pull the alarm. There is a dynamic of power that seems impossible to overcome”, he wrote.

What Weinstein is being accusé of is criminal. What he’s admitted to is unacceptable – in any industry. I applaud everybody speaking out.

Actor Terry Crews, star of the series Brooklyn Nine-Nine and saw in the saga, the Expendables, joined the battle Tuesday, October 10, revealing that he had also been a victim of sexual assault. “Everything that happens around Harvey Weinstein gives me post-traumatic symptoms. Why ? Because this kind of things also happened to ME,” he wrote.

I was on the point of him putting a beating

In his message, the actor of 49 years, explained that d-the facts had taken place in 2016, during a great festival of hollywood. Accompanied by his wife, Terry Crews was abruptly made “catch the intimate parts” by a “big size” of the industry who approached him. “Stepping back I said to him : ‘what is it that you do ?’ my wife has seen it all and it looked as if he was crazy. He simply smiled like an idiot. I was on the point of him putting a beating and in that moment, I thought how the guests were to see my reaction. ‘A man black of 110 pounds crushes a clutch of the hollywood industry’ would be the headlines the next day”, he continued.

Terry Craws concluded his story by explaining that he had spoken of this incident with all the people he knew and worked with her abuser. He was then contacted on the phone the next day to present his excuses, without, however, justify this gesture inappropriate. The actor then admitted that he did not wish to prosecute her attacker for fear of being “ostracized”, which is a “predator, powerful, and very influential”. “I let it go. And I understand why so many women who that happens to do the same. (…) With a bit of luck, the fact that I speak of my story will deter a predator, and will encourage those who feel powerless,” he concluded.

This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME. (1/Cont.)
