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.”
