Days after making what many considered to be insensitive remarks about Terry Crews’ alleged sexual assault, 50 Cent appears to be standing by what he said.
The rapper posted a photo of himself lying on a couch on Wednesday and wrote in the caption, “This is me recovering from having my sense of humor removed this morning. People are so sensitive, my doctor said l will be fine in six weeks, but my publicist said if you see any journalist play DEAD.”
50 Cent was slammed online on Tuesday after making fun of Crews online. The "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" actor has spoken openly about allegedly being groped by Hollywood agent Adam Venit, and Crews said in a Senate testimony on Tuesday that Avi Lerner, the producer of “The Expendables 4,” threatened him because he'd publicly discussed the incident.
50 Cent, who’s no stranger to social media drama, took to social media later that day to weigh in on Crews’ claims — by posting memes. The rapper shared a photo of Crews shirtless with the words “I got raped” and “My wife just watched.” Below that was a photo of Crews with a rose in his mouth alongside the words “Gym time.”
When asked by TMZ on Tuesday how he felt about 50’s remarks, Crews said that he loves the rapper and listens to his music while working out. He also used the opportunity to continue to educate others about the realities of sexual assault.
“I prove that size doesn’t matter when it comes to sexual assault,” he said.
50 later reposted Crews’ TMZ comments and wrote in the Instagram caption, “Man I like Terry Crews, I just can’t wrap my head around all this.”
