(Newser) – Terry Crews testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday to advocate for the Sexual Assault Survivors' Bill of Rights, repeating claims he was sexually assaulted at a 2016 party. The outing drew praise from many corners—Esquire's Justin Kirkland described an "impassioned and honest speech"—just not the corner 50 Cent is in. In a clear dig, the rapper shared on Instagram a meme showing a shirtless Crews next to the words, "I got raped. My wife just watched," per Vulture. "What the f--- is going on out here man?" 50 Cent wrote. "Terry: I froze in fear," he added, following that up with a laughing emoji.

While some referred to the post as "disgusting," it drew 125,000 likes—and a crying-laughing emoji from accused rapist Russell Simmons, per Fox News—before it was eventually deleted. "I prove that size doesn't matter when it comes to sexual assault," Crews later told TMZ. In his testimony, Crews had gotten emotional claiming he lost out on a film role because of his civil suit against Hollywood agent Adam Venit, whom he accuses of groping his genitals. Crews pursued charges, but the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office rejected the case because it fell outside of the statute of limitations, per TMZ. (Read more 50 Cent stories.)
