So basically, I woke up on the 22nd of may not long after the Panther Statue update was released for GTA Online (Which I have a sneaking suspicion has something to do with my issue.), tried to run GTA and it would keep crashing straight to my desktop as soon as it got halfway through the loading screen. I went to check the launcher log to see what was going wrong and the only error that came up was a "STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION" with the error code 0xc0000005 attached to it. I searched this up on google as you do and there seems to be an absolute mound of different fixes for different people and so I've pretty much gone through every single one of them hoping they would work only to my inevitable disappointment. At this point I'm out of ideas and so is the internet as far as I'm aware. Does anyone have any more solutions that I could run through before I decide to dropkick my pc?

Game crashing desktop whenever my mods folder is active?
RE: GTA 5 Crashes on loading screen in Story Mode
Check your rockstar launcher error log because I seem to be going through the exact same issue as you and keep receiving a 0xc0000005 error code. I'm yet to find a fix but hopefully 2 heads are better than one.
