"For anyone judging the women who stayed silent, read this for perspective", he wrote alongside a link to an opinion piece in The Cut by playwright Liz Meriwether about why she choose to stay silent about her own assault. Also for anyone brushing off harassment as "boys being boys"... What he's admitted to is unacceptable - in any industry.
James Van Der Beek, star of the 90s television show Dawson's Creek, tweeted on Wednesday that he has had his "ass grabbed by older, powerful men" several times in his early days in the industry.
"I understand the unwarranted shame, powerlessness & inability to blow the whistle", he wrote. There is a dynamic of power that seems impossible to overcome, " concludes the actor.
"This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why?"
'That night and the next day I talked to everyone I knew that worked with him about what happened, ' Terry tweeted.
The Vice star is not the first male Hollywood actor to reveal he was the target of sexual harassment, on Tuesday Terry Crews said a "high level Hollywood executive" groped him. "Jumping back I said, 'What are you doing?!' My wife saw everything [and] we looked at him like he was insane". My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was insane.
'I decided not 2 take it further becuz I didn't want 2b ostracized- par 4 the course when the predator has power n influence'.
"I understand and empathize with those who have remained silent".
"Hollywood is not the only business we're this happens, and to the casualties of this behavior - you are not alone".
The revelation came after Van Der Beek, 40, tweeted in support of Weinstein's accusers.
It has led to him being fired from the film company he founded and his wife leaving him.
