Published

on

Trew Crews continues to take the high road even against 50 Cent.

In a deleted post 50 Cent questioned why Crews didn’t use his strength and retaliate against the attacker. “LOL, What the fuck is going on out here man?” Fif wrote in the caption. “Terry: l froze in fear,they would have had to take me to jail. get the strap.”

TMZ caught up with Crews after his flight and asked him about 50’s comments.

“Well, I love 50 Cent. I listen to his music while I’m working out,” Crews responded. “[…] I’ve proved that size doesn’t matter when it comes to sexual assault.”

During Crews’ testimony on Tuesday, California Senator Dianne Feinstein asked the actor why he didn’t use his size to fight off Venit. Crews said racial discrimination was a big factor.

“Senator, as a black man in America, you only have a few shots at success. You only have a few chances to make yourself a viable member of the community,” he explained. “I’m from Flint, Michigan; I have seen many, many young black men who were provoked into violence, and they were imprisoned. Or they were killed.”

The athlete-actor is using his platform to help other victims speak out regardless of gender.

“This past year we have seen powerful men in Hollywood and elsewhere finally held accountable for sexual assault,” he said in his opening statement. “We also saw the backlash survivors faced coming forward. I wanted these survivors to know that I believed them, I supported them, and that this happened to me too.”

The story of Jemel Roberson is another American tragedy with police violence.

After hearing the story of the security guard gunned down by the cops, Kanye West decided to donate to the family. Kanye made multiple donations of $15,000 via a GoFundMe page that was set up to help Roberson’s family. The page’s goal of $150,000 has been exceeded and currently stands at $302,625.

Witnesses said a Midlothian police officer responding to a shooting inside a south suburban bar shot at the wrong person early Sunday morning.

After security asked a group of drunken men to leave Manny’s Blue Room Bar around 4 a.m. Sunday, witnesses said someone came back with a gun and opened fire. Security returned fire, and according to witnesses, 26-year-old armed security guard Jemel Roberson apprehended one of the men involved outside.

“He had somebody on the ground with his knee in back, with his gun in his back like, ‘Don’t move,'” witness Adam Harris said.

Soon after, witnesses said, an officer responding to the scene fired at Roberson — killing him.

Ice Cube and LL Cool J are ready to start their own sports network.

Cube and Mr. Smith are apart of a group with billionaire Carolyn Rafaelian that are trying to bid for the sports stations Disney has to sell off from their Fox deal.

According to TMZ Sports, Disney got the 22 stations as part of its $71 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox. But, officials believe that since Disney is already the majority owner of ESPN, controlling the 22 sports stations would give them too much power in the sports TV landscape.

Other potential bidders include private equity firms Apollo Global Management, Blackstone Group and he Sinclair Broadcast Group.
