Actor Terry Crews has been mocked by rapper 50 Cent after emotional testimony before the U.S. Senate about an alleged sexual assault incident earlier in his acting career.
The actor poured his heart out to senators Tuesday, describing the day he says he was groped at a Hollywood party by a powerful Hollywood agent.
"The assault lasted only minutes, but what he was effectively telling me when he held my genitals in his hand was that he held the power, that he was in control," he said.
It's something that very few men would ever dare speak about, especially in a public setting like a Senate hearing.
The former football player was praised for his courage, but now he's being mocked by rapper 50 Cent, who poked fun at Crews with an image posted to social media.
The “Wanksta” rapper's post, which has since been deleted, shows two images of Crews, one shirtless with the words, "I got raped my wife just watched," and the other of the actor with a rose in his mouth and the words, "Gym time."
He also belittled Crews, questioning why he didn't defend himself when the movie agent allegedly grabbed his genitals as his wife stood next to him.
“Lol, what the f*** is going on out here man......they would have had to take me to jail,” 50 Cent wrote.
The rapper is now being slammed on social media.
“I'm disgusted at his ignorance and insensitive response to Terry Crew's sexual assault story,” one comment read.
Another proclaimed "50 Cent is trash," while a third said, "He's disgusting."
After the condemnation, 50 Cent took the post down but the damage was done.
During the senate hearing, California Senator Diane Feinstein asked why Crews didn't retaliate.
"Senator, as a black man in America, you only have a few shots at success," Crews said as he fought back tears. "You only have a few chances to make yourself a viable member of the community."
The Hollywood agent has denied all allegations of wrongdoing.
