Wendy Williams says she’s concerned for Terry Crews‘ career after he publicly outed WME agent Adam Venit as his alleged assailant.
In an episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the daytime TV host commented on his Good Morning America interview where he detailed being groped at a party.
While the former radio personality told her audience she’s glad the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor spoke up, she doesn’t believe it was “brave”:
“I was asked in my meeting this morning, do I think it was brave of him to come out. I said, ‘No, it’s not brave, he’s just talking. But it may have a really negative affect on his career. Do you know what I mean? Being all black, and being all chatty. And this guy, the agent ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ he named names. Terry is going in. It will, in my opinion, affect his career.”
And she continued:
“He hasn’t been fired ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ he’s on leave. You know what I think that this agent has? I hate to talk color, but I’ve been here for nine years. You know we talk color here, and I don’t mean anything by it but enlightenment. I’m glad that Terry came forward to expose [him]. Unfortunately, I feel that in the race war that’s going on in this country still ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ we don’t want to acknowledge it ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ but Terry will suffer. But good for you, Terry. And shame on you, bald man.”
The 53-year-old seems to be sending out a mixed message.
But what do you think??
