Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Terry Crews shared his thoughts on Twitter Monday about the man he says groped him, Adam Venit of media agency WME, returning to work.

"Someone got a pass," the actor wrote alongside an article detailing how Venit returned to WME following a suspension after Crews said in October that he was sexually assaulted by the man.

Crews, who has also filed a police report against Venit, previously shared on Twitter how the Hollywood executive groped him during an event while he was with his wife Rebecca. "This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME," he recounted at the time.

"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," Crews said of how he was sexually assaulted.

Venit, when returning to WME, will no longer be the head of the company's motion picture group but will instead serve as an agent, Deadline reported. Venit represents clients such as Adam Sandler, Sylvester Stallone, Emma Stone and Dustin Hoffman.

Crews also shared on Twitter a Huffington Post article written by WME CEO Ari Emanuel that slammed Mel Gibson for anti-semitic remarks the actor had made. Crews shared his version of the piece where he added in Venit's name in place of Gibson's and sexual assault in place of anti-semitic.

"Copy of the actual @HuffPost letter I gave @AriEmanuel in which he DEMANDED Mel Gibson be blacklisted for anti-Semitic remarks," Crews wrote. "He said 'it's different' and handed the letter back to me."
