Hours before Terry Crews testified about his personal experience with sexual assault to the US Senate on Tuesday, rapper 50 Cent mocked the actor's story in a now deleted Instagram.

The post's caption read: "👀LOL,What the fuck is going on out here man? Terry: l froze in fear,😆they would have had to take me to jail. 🤨get the strap"

50 Cent's post did not go over well online. Russell Simmons, who Crews said asked him to take back his assault accusation against WME agent Adam Venit, commented on the rapper's post with "😂."

shit like this is the reason men don’t come forward as victims of sexual assault often. 50 Cent is publicly mocking Terry Crews, allowing Russell Simmons (friends with Crews’ abuser who tried to get him to drop the charges) to openly laugh at him. https://t.co/J16TUvDUYi

50 Cent to me will always be that guy who leaked that woman's sex tape, and he doesn't really do much that might change my perception of him for the better. In fact, this is what he does do: https://t.co/929puMQHVa

Why havent y’all cancelled 50 cent yet? He has all the money in the world, does no good for the world and continues to use his platform to bully people. Problematic to the max.

Toxic masculinity is what is doing @50cent instead of showing support to @terrycrews he is mocking him. Childish.

Rather than take the controversial post down on Tuesday, 50 Cent initially posted two more posts on Instagram mocking Crews, and then deleted all three controversial posts, and posted a video of Crews' reaction to his jeering.

The post's caption reads, "🤷🏽‍♂️Man l like Terry Crews, l just can’t wrap my head around all this. 🤷🏽‍♂️🤨get the strap"

The rapper also put up an Instagram Wednesday morning of him sleeping with a caption that joked he's recovering from having his "sense of humor removed," and that his publicist told him, "if you see any journalist play DEAD."
