Terry Crews to Comedians: Stop Telling Jokes About Male Sexual Assault
Prison rape and the molesting and harassment of boys and men is not a laughing matter.
Samantha Bee enlisted the help of actor Terry Crews on her show Full Frontal for a PSA on jokes about sexual assault against men. Bee kicked off the segment with clips of male comedians, including Bill Maher and Steve Martin, making jokes about prison rape. Bee said that "We all act like abuse is a big joke when it happens to men." Then Bee introduced a message from Terry Crews who asked comedians to stop telling jokes about rape. Crews alleged last year that he was sexually assaulted by a Hollywood executive, and testified last month to the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Sexual Assault Survivors' Bill of Rights.
