Additionally, as he appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Crews stated, “I have to say this: the people that surprised me the most were Black women. Black men did not want any part of it. All my support came from Black women, straight up. And that’s kind of wild. It shocked me. It shocked my family.”

In addition, he says, “I thought, here I am as a Black man saying some things that we’ve all been through, and a lot of guys [were] just like, ‘Man, you’re weak. You’re sorry. You should have hit him..should have knocked him out..should have did all this stuff. Black women were like, ‘No, no. It doesn’t work like that.’ And I was shocked at the split within my own community. It was deep.”
