Andy Samberg is “proud” of his Brooklyn Nine-Nine costar Terry Crews, who faced jokes from rapper 50 Cent after testifying before a Senate committee for the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights on Tuesday.

Crews recounted during a Senate hearing his claims against Adam Venit, a Hollywood agent who allegedly groped his genitals at an industry event in 2016.

Court documents, obtained by PEOPLE, showed that Venit denied “each and every allegation.”

After a one-month unpaid suspension from his agency, William Morris Endeavor, Venit returned to work, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As for 50 Cent, the rapper had deleted an Instagram post that seemed to mock Crews’ allegations.

“Terry: I froze in fear, [used laughing emoji] they would have had to take me to jail.

Rose McGowan, who came out with claims of sexual assault against now-ousted movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, called Crews a “HERO!” »
