TERRY CREWS is a gigantic, former NFL player with muscles on top of muscles.  The characters he plays tend to be good at three things:  Flexing, making mean faces, and yelling.

And yet in 2016, he claims he was sexually assaulted when a powerful Hollywood agent grabbed his genitals at a party.  But he was afraid to tell his story until recently, when the #MeToo movement took hold.

Terry went to the Senate yesterday to urge them to pass a Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, and Senator DIANNE FEINSTEIN asked him why he didn’t just flatten the guy.  His answer was pretty eye-opening.

He said, quote, “As a black man in America, you only have a few shots at success.  You only have a few chances to make yourself a viable member of the community.

“I’m from Flint, Michigan.  I have seen many, many young black men who were provoked into violence, and they were in prison, or they were killed.  And they’re not here.”

He added that his wife TRAINED him over the years not to be provoked into violence.  And he said, quote, “The training worked.  Because I did not go into my first reaction.  I grabbed her hand, and we left.”

Terry also said he backed out of “Expendables 4”, because one of the producers tried to pressure him to drop his lawsuit against his alleged abuser.

He said, quote, “This is one thing I had to decide, whether I was going to draw the line.  Am I going to be a part of this or am I gonna take a stand, and there are projects I had to turn down.”

Not surprisingly, 50 CENT had a rather unenlightened take on the whole thing.  He kind of mocked Terry on social media, questioning how a guy like him could be sexually assaulted.

And Terry said, quote, “I proved that size doesn’t matter when it comes to sexual assault.
