James Van Der Beek Reveals He Was Also Victimized By Powerful Men In Hollywood
Terry Crews isn’t the only celebrity man to have experienced sexual harassment at the hands of a male Hollywood exec. James Van Der Beek added his voice to the conversation on Harvey Weinstein late Thursday, revealing how he had been both groped and pushed into awkward sexual conversation with older powerful Hollywood men as well.
“I’ve had my ass grabbed by older, powerful men, I’ve had them corner me in inappropriate sexual conversations when I was much younger,’ he tweeted.
“I understand the unwarranted shame, powerlessness & inability to blow the whistle. There’s a power dynamic that feels impossible to overcome.”
Van Der Beek also slammed those who judged women who have alleged that they were sexually assaulted or harassed by Weinstein for not coming forward sooner.
Does it surprise you to hear that men were also victimized? Also Terry Crews and James Van Der Beek are fairly famous and well established, can you imagine how many men who don’t have their kind of success have also probably been affected and don’t even have an outlet to reveal their ordeals?
Hollywood must change NOW!
