Terry Crews Gets Dragged for Saying He’s Only Loyal to His Wife Amid Gabrielle Union ‘AGT’ Drama

*Black Twitter is dragging Terry Crews for filth after he posted a series of cryptic tweets on Monday in response to the backlash to his comments about Gabrielle Union’s exit on “America’s Got Talent.”

“I’m a hog. You’re a chicken,” the AGT host wrote on Twitter. “Just ‘cuz you gave me eggs — don’t mean I owe you bacon.”

A few hours later, Crews also tweeted about remaining loyal only to his white-ish wife, Rebecca King-Crews, not his Black mother or sisters… not even his own daughters. 

“There is only one woman one earth I have to please,” he wrote, Yahoo reports.. “Her name is Rebecca. Not my mother, my sister, my daughters or co-workers. I will let their husbands/ boyfriends/ partners take care of them. Rebecca gives me WINGS.”

One Twitter user responded to the comment with, “You literally came out your black mouth and said you don’t have to please your Black momma?

His tweets come days after Union seemed to fire back at Crews after he threw her under the bus during an interview on 3rd hour of Today. The “White Chicks” actor said he never experienced any of Union’s claims of discrimination, racial insensitivity and a “toxic” culture on the set.

“First of all, I can’t speak for sexism because I’m not a woman, but I can speak on behalf of any racism comments,” he said. “That was never my experience … in fact, it was the most diverse place I have ever been in my 20 years of entertainment.”

“I have to say this, too. When you look at what the allegations were about, it was given by an unnamed source. My thing is — it’s funny because I believe you should listen to women, you should always believe women, so I asked my wife what I should do,” Crews added.

“She was like, first of all, if it’s coming from an unnamed source, because Gabrielle Union has not made any statement to this day about any of these allegations publicly … if she hasn’t made a statement, why would you?”

Union did not mention Crews by name, but in a series of tweets posted after his appearance on “Today,” she praised the “multiple witnesses who bravely came forward to let everyone know” she wasn’t lying, and slammed “those who enthusiastically will throw you under the bus.”

She went on to note the lack of diversity among production as well as the hair and makeup department. 

Union also claimed that the involved parties agreed not to speak about the situation until the investigation is complete: “But if we doing this… ohhhhh baby let’s gooooooooooo!” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, when asked if he had spoken to Union since she left AGT, Crews said, “I have not. I haven’t reached out, but I have not heard anything.”

Many Black women have taken to Twitter to call out Crews for not defending Gabby the way she did for him when he claimed former WME agent Adam Venit sexually assaulted him at a 2017 party. Crews sued Venit but his case was ultimately thrown out.

Crews even admitted that it was ONLY Black women who supported him when he came forward with his groping story. These same women are now feeling some way about the actor not having Union’s back.
