50 Cent Mocks Terry Crews With 'I Got Raped' Instagram Post After Actor's Sexual Assault Testimony

Terry Crews delivered an impassioned speech detailing his experience with sexual assault before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday and was later mocked for it by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.

Crews first shared his story of being inappropriately groped by talent agent Adam Venit shortly after Hollywood's fallen director Harvey Weinstein's longstanding history of sexual assault, abuse and rape was revealed in two separate New York Times and New Yorker magazine exposés in October.

Since then, Crews has been one of the loudest male voices supporting women's movements against sexual assault, and on Tuesday he extended his platform to advocate for The Sexual Assault Bill of Rights, a bill signed by President Barack Obama back in 2016.

In his testimony to the Senate, the actor said he "never felt more emasculated" following the experience. "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. He was in control," Crews said.

The 49-year-old said he was told "over and over that this was not abuse, that this was just a joke, that this was just horseplay," and noted how others glazing over his accusation was yet another example of "how toxic masculinity permeates culture."

Hours after Crews's address appeared on C-Span, Jackson took to Instagram and posted a meme of a shirtless Crews with the message "I got raped… My wife just watched." Jackson captioned the photo: "LOL, What the f**k is going on out here man? Terry: I froze in fear, they would have had to take me to jail."

The photo, which has since been deleted, sparked immediate outrage online. Hundreds of people on Twitter accused the 42-year-old rapper of embodying the very definition of toxic masculinity the Deadpool 2 star spoke of during his Senate testimony.

During Crews's hearing, California Senator Dianne Feinstein asked the former football player why he didn't use his strength to fight back when he was assaulted. "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 said.

Crews added: "I'm from Flint, Michigan. I have seen many young black men who were provoked into violence, and they're in prison, or they were killed. And they're not here."
