Terry Crews has been named a hero for some by standing up to a vile Hollywood agent who groped him in February 2016. By speaking out and fighting crews managed to get Adam Venit fired (Venit’s team claims he “retired) and settled a lawsuit. However, people like Tariq Nasheed, 50 Cent and especially comedian DL Hughley think Terry Crews should have beat the man to a pulp, which most definitely would have landed another Black man in jail and Venit would probably still have his job.
After being consistently mocked by Hughley, Crews decided to respond and “America’s Got Talent Host” is getting a slow clap across Twitter.
As we reported earlier today, Terry wrote on Twitter, “I have looked up to you my whole career as one of the funniest most talented people I’ve ever seen. I remember when I saw you warming up the crowd at FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR (sic) and I thought ‘this man is a genius.’ … But now you are an example of when comedy turns to sarcasm and cynicism. And you find it extremely easy to get jokes at someone else (sic) expense. You mock my success, but all I ever did was support you.”
He continued, “You @50cent @unclerush and @tariqnasheed have decided my sexual assault was hilarious, whereas there are a whole generation of black women and men who don’t think it’s funny. ABUSERS PROTECT ABUSERS but they MOCK SURVIVORS as well. When you see me, keep it moving.”
Crews asked Hughley if he is implying that he wanted to be sexual assaulted, to which the comedian responded. “You saw the video,” referencing a video where Hughley implied Crews should have beat up Venit.
Crews wrote, “Sir you said I should have pushed him back, or restrained him and I DID ALL THOSE THINGS… but you act like I didn’t. Were you there?”
Hughley tweeted, “That’s different than slapping the shit outa him.”
Crews tweeted right back, “If you truly feel that is a correct way to deal with toxic behavior… Should I slap the shit out of you?”
Twitter loved Terry’s response. See the reactions below:
