The widespread topic of sexual assault in Hollywood has become one of the most prevalent talking points in media for the past few months, and with actor Terry Crews coming forward about his own experience, many rallied behind him with support.
Unfortunately, there still are some ignorant trolls out there who question the validity of his claims. Luckily, the actor had the time to school his detractor on the truth behind sexual assault and its varying victims.

One Twitter user shared his flighty commentary on the issue by questioning why everyone has been "scared to come out" before calling crews a "f****t."
Offering the perfect clapback, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star explained that not only does being sexually assaulted not make him gay — correcting him, in the process that the dereogatory term he used is inexcusible — but this rhetoric is what is empowering sexual assault assailants in the Black community, especially, and silencing victims.
"Molesters use this same logic on their famale or child victims, calling them 'b*****s' or "h**s' who asked 4 it," he responded. "This mindset has gone unchallenged by the Black community for 2 long."
