Touré is under some major hear right now after his appearance on Surviving R. Kelly. Just a week after he appeared in the Lifetime docu-series, he was accused of sexually harassing one of his former colleagues. The allegations are already having an impact on his career. Mere moments before doing a live interview with the journalist, Terry Crews announced that he canceled his appearance.
Terry Crews took to Twitter to announce that he’ll be canceling his appearance on the Touré Show. The show’s Twitter account began promoting Crews appearance, but the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor quoted the tweet and simply wrote, “CANCELLED.” Although he didn’t provide a reason behind canceling, it’s likely due to the sexual harassment allegations from a make-up artist who claimed Touré made crude comments while they worked together. Touré was eventually fired from the show.
“Every Monday I used to work with him on a show in 2017 and he couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to fuck me, what his cum would look like on my face…. I had to have the crew stay in the room [with] me while I got him ready…. And when I left I called HR…. He got fired instantly,” the make-up artist claimed on Instagram
Touré issued a response to the allegations earlier today.
“On the show, our team, including myself, engaged in edgy, crass banter, that at the time I did not think was offensive for our tight-knit group. I am sorry for my language and for making her feel uncomfortable in any way. As a lead on the show, I should have refrained from this behavior. I have learned and grown from this experience,” read a statement from his rep.
