James Van Der Beek Shares Experiences with Harassment

James Van Der Beek Shares Experiences with Harassment”

James Van Der Beek became the latest male TV star to say he had been the victim of sexual misconduct as he joined Terry Crews in expressing support for women who have made similar accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

James was just 20 years old when he burst onto the scene as the star of Dawson's Creek. "There's a power dynamic that feels impossible to overcome", he continued, empathising with women who have gone through similar or even worse cases of sexual assault. "Because this kind of thing happened to ME", he wrote. Actor and former National Football League linebacker Terry Crews tweeted Tuesday that he had been groped by a "high level Hollywood executive".

"For anyone judging the women who stayed silent, read this for perspective".

Multiple stars have come forward since the New York Times expose accusing Weinstein of decades of sexual harassment and abuse.

"Hopefully, me coming forward with my story will deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless", said Crews, who is a former National Football League linebacker. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho' would be the headline the next day", adding, "Only I probably wouldn't have been able to read it because I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN JAIL. "I was going to kick his a*s right then - but I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear".

"I let it go".

Earlier in the evening, he commented on Weinstein specifically, calling his behavior "criminal" and "unacceptable", and adding that he applauds everybody speaking out.

On Tuesday, the movie mogul was accused of rape by three women - claims Weinstein "unequivocally denies" - and his British wife Georgina Chapman announced she was leaving him.
