50 Cent got into the habit creating Instagram posts meant to entertain his fanbase, all which include “get the strap” in the caption. The humor is usually light and generally well-received. However, one his posts yesterday was criticised. It was one that featured Terry Crews as an object ridicule, following the testimony he shared on Capitol Hill concerning his being sexually assaulted by WME agent Adam Venit. Many people on social media were wondering how a man built like himself would allow himself to be fondled without physically retaliating against the perpetrator. Crews was even asked a form this question during his testimony. His response included the danger Black men in the U.S. face when they are witnessed being violent. He said that many these men end up in jail or even dead.
For some reason, this testimony inspired 50 to make fun Terry Crew’s experience. Seems like a good night’s rest has now inspired the rapper turned actor to remove the post. He hasn’t made an overt statement about the matter, but the removal can be interpreted as an admission regret. Perhaps his entourage reminded him Hip Hop culture’s being riddled with toxic masculinity and how his actions could potentially diminish the perpetuation such ideals. 50 Cent also decided to remove his post about the Nipsey Hustle slapping video.
