A toxic sense of entitlement will do strange things to a person. You wouldn’t necessarily think of 6’3″, 200-pound actor Terry Crews as likely target of sexual assault, but his story goes to show that anybody can be taken advantage of at any time.

On Tuesday, the actor posted a series of sixteen tweets describing an incident between himself and a Hollywood executive, who indeed took advantage of Crews and somehow didn’t get pummeled into a steaming pile of vaguely humanoid mush.

Terry Crews is 6’3″ and well over 200 pounds of pure muscle. As funny and friendly as the actor seems, it’s really hard to imagine anyone ever putting their hands on Crews without his permission and surviving the encounter.

Here’s his story:

“I understand why many women who this happens to let it go,” he tweeted.

“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)”

Plenty of people in his industry and out have applauded Crews for coming forward with his story:
