Terry Crews Speaks Against Toxic Masculinity

Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Terry Crews, advocated for the Sexual Assault Survivors' Bill of Rights during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday.

Terry Crews is an outspoken feminist and supporter of the Me Too movement – testified in favour of the bill, citing his own experience, speaking against the culture of toxic masculinity. He has publicly accused a high level Hollywood agent of groping him at a party in 2016, who has since denied the allegations.

Senator Dianne Feinstein asked why Terry Crews did not fight back. His response allowed people to feel the full weight of how powerless victims feel. 

Terry Crews spoke out regarding the Sexual Assault Survivors Bill of Rights, which focuses on collecting and preserving rape kits.

The bill was signed into law at a federal level in 2016, but was meant to serve as a model for states to follow.
