“This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME…
My wife n I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates.
“Jumping back I said What are you doing?! My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk.
I was going to kick his ass right then— but I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear.
240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho” would be the headline the next day.
