Terry Crews was recently near Capitol Hill talking about the Sexual Assault Survivor’s Bill of Rights with the Senate Judiciary Committee. He spoke of how important this issue was to him, especially since he’s been a victim of sexual assault.

Crews didn’t mention the name of his attacker, but previously he has said that Adam Venit touched his genitals at a party back in 2016. Venit has of course denied these allegations.

Terry said that, “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. That he was in control.”

He also said that, “I wanted these survivors to know that I believed them, I supported them, and that this happened to me too. This encouraged me to come forward with my own experience.”

He then spoke about a recent interaction he had with the producer of Expendables 4 (honestly how many stupid Expendables movies do we need?).

“I’ve done three movies called The Expendables with Sylvester Stallone.

The producer of that film called my manager and asked him to drop my case in order for me to be in the fourth installment of the movie, and if I didn’t there would be trouble.”

He had tweeted back in February about this as well saying:

“Management got a call last week from Avi Lerner producer of EXPENDABLES 4 saying I could avoid any “problems” on the sequel if I dropped my case against @WME.

Guess who’s Sly’s agent?
ADAM VENIT”

Crews then shared the humiliation he felt after his assault:

“I was told over and over that this was not abuse. This was just a joke. This was just horseplay,

But I can say one man’s horseplay is another man’s humiliation. And I chose to tell my story and share my experience to stand in solidarity with millions of other survivors around the world.

That I know how hard it is to come forward. I know the shame associated with the assault.”

It’s safe to say that Twitter praised Terry for the amazing man he is, take a look at some of these Tweets.

This news came out yesterday and it’s safe to say the internet has voiced their opinions. One of those opinions comes from 50 Cent and it’s the problem that Terry is trying to confront.

He posted this image on Instagram which he later deleted, maybe you can see why.

His caption says, “LOL, What the f*** is going on out here man? Terry: I froze in fear. they would have had to take me to jail. get the strap.”

I wonder what he would say in front of Terry’s face.

Terry concluded his speech in front of the Committee by saying how important the Sexual Assault Survivor’s Bill of Rights really is:

“This bill gives survivors the right to have time to distance themselves from the immediate trauma before making the difficult decision to report the assault to law enforcement.”

Keep being a force for good Terry, we the people of the internet are standing with you.
