New York rapper 50 Cent is still having a tough time understanding how Hollywood superstar Terry Crews could find himself becoming the victim to a sexual attack. The hip-hop star has addressed his recent shade toward the high-profile entertainer.
In a new interview, Fif dished on going directly at Terry about letting an executive get touchy with him.
“I wasn’t looking at Terry Crews that way, at that point. I’m looking at the Hulk. The guy is this big, that’s being taken advantage of,” 50 Cent said Tuesday. “If you asked [a man] if someone touched them. … They go, ‘Yo, what you doing?’ Nothing more but ‘What you doing?’ In the Senate, when they [were] talking about it, he didn’t even respond [to the alleged perpetrator] by doing that.” (The View)
Last month, a petition came together urging premium network Starz to cut ties with the “Power” star for making fun of Crews’ sexual attack.
After 50 Cent mocked Terry Crews on social media for his sexual assault testimony in front of the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, a Care2 petition was started asking Starz to cut ties with the rapper and producer for the premium channel’s most-watched series, Power. The rap mogul posted a since-deleted meme on his Instagram ridiculing Crews, with images of the NFL player-turned-actor’s buff body with the words “I got raped. My wife just watched” next to it and another image below of Crews with a rose in his mouth saying “Gym time.” (Billboard)
The same week, Crews addressed Fif’s publicized social media shade.
“Well, I love 50 Cent. I listen to his music while I’m working out. I’ve proved that size doesn’t matter when it comes to sexual assault.” (TMZ)
Last month, Terry testified before Congress about his alleged sexual assault.
Actor Terry Crews recounted his story of sexual assault — telling lawmakers Tuesday that even as a former NFL linebacker and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star, “I sit here as an example” of survivors. Appearing before a Senate committee hearing to advocate for the “Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights,” Crews said, “This happened to me, too.” “A lot of people believe a person like me can’t be victimized, but what happened to me has happened to many, many others.” After seeing survivors come forward only to be met with persecution and backlash, Crews said he revealed his own story to say “I believed them, I supported them, and that this happened to me, too.” (ABC News)
