Rapper 50 Cent mocked Terry Crews’ sexual assault claim, and the actor responded with total class.
TMZ caught up to the 49-year-old actor Tuesday and let him know about the posts the rapper made on Instagram after the “Deadpool 2” star testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to advocate for the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, talking about his alleged ordeal at the hands of a Hollywood agent in 2016.
“The assault lasted only minutes, but what he was effectively telling me while he held my genitals in his hand, was that he held the power —that he was in control,” the actor shared during his opening statement. “This is how toxic masculinity permeates culture.”
In the since-deleted posts, the rapper — born Curtis Jackson — noted the actor’s size and said if it had happened to himself, he would have grabbed the strap (a slang word for gun).
“Well, I love 50 Cent,” Crews responded. “I listen to his music while I’m working out. That’s the deal.”
When pressed further about his size being a possible deterrent, “The Expendables” star said, “Well, first of all, I prove that size doesn’t matter when it comes to sexual assault.”
The comments come in response to posts on social media by the rapper with shirtless pictures of the actor that read, “I got raped” and “my wife just watched.” A second shot showed the actor holding a rose in his mouth with the words “gym time.”
