Rapper 50 Cent received backlash on social media after he mocked Terry Crews on Instagram over the actor’s allegation that he was sexually assaulted.

Crews testified before a Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday about sexual abuse where he revealed that he will no longer appear in “The Expendables 4” following a dispute with producer Avi Lerner over his current sexual harassment lawsuit against William Morris Endeavor agent Adam Venit.

Crews stated during the hearing that Lerner called his manager and issued an ultimatum to the actor - that he has to drop the lawsuit if he wants to still have a role in the film. Crews shared that he would rather not have any role in the upcoming sequel. He also pointed out that Lerner and his production company, Millenium Films, are under their own investigation after a former female employee filed a lawsuit saying that the movie outfit fostered a “misogynistic work environment.”

Crews accused Venit of groping him at a Hollywood party in 2016.

50 Cent took to social media early Tuesday to mock the actor. First, the rapper posted an image of a shirtless Crews, which had the words, “I got raped” and “My wife just watched.”

A second photo showed the actor with a rose stem clenched between his teeth and the message, “Gym time.”

The rapper also wrote: “LOL, What the f— is going on out here man? Terry: I froze in fear,” including a laughing emoji, “they would have had to take me to jail.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">50 Cent and Creepy “Uncle Rush” laughing at Terry Crews getting sexually assaulted is disgusting.

The backlash on social media was quick and strong against the rapper, however. One social media user wrote: “You’re really a piece of s— for this.” Another didn’t hold back the disdain for the rapper and posted: “Do humanity a favor and leave the f—ing planet already.”

Another vowed to retaliate against 50 Cent by not supporting his projects. One said: “You’re a complete piece of s—. Cash doesn’t buy class. Definitely won’t be supporting Power since your company produces it. Aren’t you being sued? Not smart enough to know when to stfu.”

Twitter was also not having it.
