Adam Venit is on leave from William Morris Endeavor while the agency looks into a sexual-harassment allegation made by Terry Crews. In the initial wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Crews opened up on Twitter about having been groped by a “high level Hollywood executive” at a function last year; though the actor didn’t name names, a Variety report suggests that Venit may have been involved.

Venit serves as the head of WME’s motion-picture group, which represents such high-profile clients as Emma Stone, Brett Ratner, Adam Sandler, and Eddie Murphy, among others.

“Jumping back I said What are you doing?!” Crews tweeted about the alleged incident. “My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk.” He continued, “I let it go. And I understand why many women who this happens to let it go. Who’s going 2 believe you? ( few) What r the repercussions?(many) Do u want 2 work again? (Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized?(No).” Crews is among WME’s clients.
