“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” doesn’t appear to be a motto 50 Cent follows, as evidenced by his mocking of Terry Crews on Instagram for recounting his experiences of sexual assault before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Hours after the Brooklyn 99 actor testified in the Senate to advocate for the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, 50 Cent released his pointless-cruelty valve, posting an image of Crews with the words, “I got raped / My wife just watched.” He captioned the post, “👀LOL,What the fuck is going on out here man? Terry: l froze in fear,😆they would have had to take me to jail. 🤨get the strap.”
50 Cent has now deleted the post, but you can see a copy below.
50 Cent and Creepy “Uncle Rush” laughing at Terry Crews getting sexually assaulted is disgusting. The comment section is a cesspool, mostly “he must have liked it.” victim blaming. There is a Crisis in Masculinity Part 2,507. pic.twitter.com/7cDsy1YLdG

TMZ caught up with Crews to get a reaction. Crews didn’t rise to the bait, responding simply, “I love 50 Cent, I listen to his music while I’m working out,” and noting how size isn’t a factor in cases of sexual assault.
Public reaction to Fiddy’s comments was a little less restrained, however, with many Twitter users berating him for belittling sexual assault and being a bully.
50 Cent trash for mocking Terry Crews like that. And yeah i know he does this for everything but even in this day and age there are some things that need to be off limits when it comes to jokes.

The reaction to Terry Crews and people laughing along with 50 Cent is alarming, this includes people like @UncleRush. There are countless Black Men and Boys who have been violated sexually who don't tell you their stories because of reactions like these. Likely people you know.

Why havent y’all cancelled 50 cent yet? He has all the money in the world, does no good for the world and continues to use his platform to bully people. Problematic to the max.

Terry Crews is a gem. 50 Cent can never relate cos like his name suggests, he doesn't add much value to anything of importance.
