Terry Crews Goes After D.L. Hughley Over Sexual Assault Criticism
Terry Crews and comedian D.L. Hughley got into a heated debate after Hughley made comments about Terry Crews’ sexual assault allegations.
Crews took to Twitter early Sunday morning, to express his thoughts after watching an interview that Hughley did where he said that he couldn’t believe that “a dude with all those muscles” couldn’t stop an agent from harassing him. He is referring to agent Adam Venit who allegedly groped Crews at a party in 2016.
“You told the world ‘God Gave Me Muscles So I Could Say No,’” Crews tweeted. “Are you implying I ‘wanted’ to be sexually assaulted? I’m listening, sir.”
Hughley then responded, “You saw the video!” to which Crews responded again, “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 suggested that Crews should have gotten physical with Venit, “That’s different than slapping the s–t outa him.”
The Crews added, “So sir… If you truly feel that is a correct way to deal with toxic behavior… Should I slap the s–t out of you?”
Terry then opened up about his disappointment in Hughley,
“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 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 expense. You mock my success, but all I ever did was support you.”
