I honestly thought his allegations would be more of a "My agent/producer/director said I have to let him touch me or else" moment, and not some party where a man (not his agent) groped him in front of his wife.  Neither is right, but the first scenario seems more the typical "It doesn't matter how physically imposing you are if they hold your career in their hands".

Love me some Office Linebacker.

Its about power. What could be more powerful than subjugating a person like Terry Crews. The kind of person that would beat you to a pulp if only you didn't hold the power of life and death over their career.

I'm just saying such an act, even if I was the type and in position to sexually harass someone, would be on the wrong side of the risk/reward line.

It's like the old rule, never own a pet that you couldn't take in a fight.  Just in case.

I don't think consequences are really in consideration during an assault. Or perhaps, the risk of consequences adds to the "enjoyment", or whatever the farking feeling would be.

Also, a 90 lb woman could kill you no problem. You hardly need massive arms to commit murder.

Yes this.  I'm sure his assaulter had a big-ole wank that night and was chasing that dragon for a good while after.  After that, dominating a no-name actress had to be kind of "meh".

FortyHams: As Crews said "If I attack this guy who would the police believe?"


This. If Hollywood Bigshot had gotten some teeth knocked out by a muscular black former NFL player, selling Terry's claim to the LAPD probably wouldn't have protected him from a night in jail, a misdemeanor assault charge, and a lawsuit by Mr. Bigshot. Along with  losing a lot of acting opportunities.

Terry Crews has likely known for a long time that he is physically capable of beating the stuffing out of a lot of people. But somewhere along the way, someone taught him the importance of being smart when it comes to picking his battles.
 
2017-11-09 12:40:49 PM  
None of the three, subby.  The asshole did it because he knew he'd get away with it.

Exactly.

Seems like the sexual assault/harassment floodgates are open in Hollywood, I expect this will be continuing for some time.

As far as the drunk, stupid or arrogant thing, what it comes down to is that this guy has obviously been getting away with this kind of behavior for so long that he thinks it's acceptable.

dragonchild: None of the three, subby.  The asshole did it because he knew he'd get away with it.


This. It didn't matter how much stronger the victim was. The assaulter knew he had the kind of "never work in this town again" influence that he could grab whoever he wanted without any repercussions.

Every time I see him in a movie doing his titty dance I cannot help but to want to grab him by the p*ssy.  That does not make it right, mind you but if p*ssygrabbing is good enough for Trump and for TBag, who am I to denounce it.

Sure that wasn't a wrong number?

I mean I'd probably react the same if someone called me on the phone saying I molested Terry Crews.  I'd also say things like "does your mother know you're doing this" or "why did you put that image in my head" or "are you from Old Spice Pranklines?  I love your stuff!  Send me more of your bodywash!"

Yep.  I've watched just about all of them; even a lot of the rappers I've never heard of gave good and interesting interviews.  For a guy doing a "gimmic" series Sean Evans is a good interviewer.  I like how he tends to ramp up the seriousness of the questions as the wings get hotter and the difficulty the people have answering them while having their mouths fried.

Also, DJ Khaled is a pussy.

He does his research and makes it a point not to ask the same questions these celebrities have heard a million times. I did not expect to get so into a Coolio interview in 2017 but here we are.

Also this. The best part of that is how all the rappers who went on after that episode shiat all over him for tapping out.

Oh, I know.  Just that usually when you have a "small time with a twist" celebrity interviewer, they're not usually any way near that competent.

I'm willing to be on this. If you can find some law enforcement experts or psychiatrists who deal with this who will say that it isn't about power, then I'll take that into consideration. But I think you'll have a hard time finding that.

Might be a valid point, but if that's the case, then "it's about power" is a pretty low bar.  Because most johns aren't the rich-guy-looking-to-humiliate-someone types, they're either having to pay for sex because they can't get it another way or they're just paying for the ability to have sex with someone who's not their partner or spouse.

Are there a lot who actually say this?  It seems to just be politicians and activists who say this.  Actual scientists like Steven Pinker, Posner, Ehlrich, etc.. disagree.

Research shows that rape victims, as a class, are most likely to be young physically attractive women (as opposed to older, more successful career women). Convicted rapists are disproportionately young disadvantaged men with low social status and therefore unattractive to most women.

And again, why would rape decrease so drastically when prostitution is legalized?

I'm willing to bet that a large man who could snap his neck like a pencil wasn't his first victim. if it's about the thrill of power, you probably work your way up to big challenges like TC. kind of like increasing doses of drugs to keep your high.
Once you've fondled enough young hopeful stars, you work into getting them to give you a handjob/blowjob/full on casting couch bang. but once you know you can get away with that every time... where do you go from there? grope normal guys at parties, grope big guys at parties, grope big married guys at parties in front of their wives to emasculate them?
somebody the other day mentioned bringing back stocks and shaming in the public square... i like it.
