Terry Crews and D.L. Hughley got into a war of words Sunday (Jan. 27) over comments Hughley made about Crews’ sexual assault allegations against his former talent agent Adam Venit.

Venit has since apologized to Crews and also exited his role at the WME agency after the agency reached a settlement with Crews last year.

Last August, in an interview with VladTV, Hughley said he didn’t understand how a man of Crews’ stature could be sexually assaulted by another man.

“I think it’s hard for me to think that a dude with all those muscles can’t tell an agent to not touch his ass … I don’t understand it,” Hughley said. “I think that now everybody’s so into this notion that everybody’s like, ‘It happened to me, too.’ Aye mothaf**ka, God gave you muscles so you can say, ‘No,’ and mean it.”

Crews must have recently caught wind of Hughley’s comments because he called the comedian out on Twitter early Sunday morning.

“Are you implying I ‘wanted’ to be sexually assaulted?” Crews asked Hughley on Twitter. “You saw the video!” Hughley responded. “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?” Crews said to the comedian, who then went on to say: “That’s different than slapping the sh*t outa [sic] him.”

Responding to his comments, Crews addressed Hughley in another series of tweets and also called out 50 Cent, Russell Simmons and Tariq Nasheed for making jokes about the situation.

“I have looked up to you my whole career as one of the funniest most talented people I’ve ever seen,” Crews tweeted. “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.”

Crews continued: “You, [50 Cent], [Russell Simmons] and [Tariq Nasheed] have decided my sexual assault was hilarious, whereas there are a whole generation of black women and men who don’t think it’s funny. ABUSERS PROTECT ABUSERS but they MOCK SURVIVORS as well. When you see me, keep it moving.”

In a final tweet, Crews quoted Hughley’s ‘that’s different than slapping the sh*t [out of] him’ tweet and wrote: “If you truly feel that is a correct way to deal with toxic behavior… Should I slap the sh*t out of you?”

Needless to say, Twitter, for the most part, is #TeamTerry.

While D.L. Hughley, 50 Cent and Russell Simmons have yet to respond to Crews’ statements, Tariq Nasheed gave his two cents on his name being brought up:

Now we’re all just patiently waiting to see what D.L. has to say.
