Terry Crews Says Embattled National Enquirer Editor Threatened Smear Campaign

“Abusers protect abusers,” tweeted the actor

Shortly after suing WME agent Adam Venit for sexual assault, actor Terry Crews spoke out against Dylan Howard, chief creative officer of American Media Inc., which runs Radar Online and the National Enquirer.

In a tweet, Crews said that Howard, who today was also accused of sexual misconduct, threatened to run a false story about the actor involving a prostitute after he appeared on “Good Morning America” to discuss Venit’s alleged assault of Crews at a Hollywood party last year. Crews’ tweet was in response to an Associated Press story outlining the accusations against Howard, which include claims he “openly described his sexual partners in the newsroom, discussed female employees’ sex lives and forced women to watch or listen to pornographic material.”

Crews filed a sexual assault suit against Venit a week after WME completed an internal investigation into his conduct and decided to remove Venit as head of the agency’s motion picture group, but allowed him to stay at the company as an agent.
