Did 50 Cent mock Terry Crews' groping allegation to promote the return of Power?
The rapper took to Instagram on Tuesday after the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star testified in front of a U.S. Senate committee about his groping allegation and toxic masculinity, mocking Crews with a meme that argued a guy as big and strong as Crews couldn't be the victim of sexual harassment. TMZ asked Crews about 50 Cent after his testimony. "First of all, I proved that size doesn't matter when it comes to sexual assault," Crews responded. 50 Cent later deleted the post. But as Deadline points out, 50 Cent has a history of bashing people on social media shortly before or after a major project of his is about to come out. His mockery of Crews comes days before the Season 5 premiere of Starz's Power.

It's not surprising that Vida and One Day at a Time would be at the forefront of TV's response to the family separation crisis
"They, unlike the vast majority of television out there, have been doing the crucial work of humanizing Latinx stories all along," says Caroline Framke. "They, like their fundraising hashtag, have been showing how the political is so often personal, one life at a time. One Day at a Time has tackled a range of issues surrounding immigration, racism, and identity since day one...Vida takes a bit of a different tack, but no less personal."
