Terry Crews has had it with what he calls D.L. Hughley’s “toxic behavior.”

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor slammed The Hughleys star during a back-and-forth about sexual assault Sunday on Twitter.

Crews was responding to an interview Hughley did in August 2018, where he shared his thoughts on The Expendables star’s allegation that he was sexually assaulted by former William Morris Endeavor agent Adam Venit at a Hollywood party in 2016.

Hughley was asked during an interview with Vlad TV what he thought about “the whole Terry Crews thing.”

The comedian said he found it difficult to believe “a dude with all those muscles can’t tell an agent to not touch his a–.”

Hughley continued, “I don’t understand. I think that now everybody’s so into this notion that, ‘It happened to me too.’ Hey, motherfu–er, God gave you muscles so you could say no and mean it.”

Crews responded to the resurfaced interview in a series of tweets.

“You told the world ‘God Gave Me Muscles So I Could Say No,’” the actor tweeted, along with a link to the video of the interview. “Are you implying I ‘wanted’ to be sexually assaulted? I’m listening, sir.”

Hughley shot back by writing, “You saw the video!”

Crews responded, “Sir you said I should have pushed him back, or restrained him and I DID ALL THOSE THINGS… but you act like I didn’t. Were you there?”

Hughley then taunted him for not “slapping the sh-t” out of the agent.

Crews clapped back by writing, “So sir… If you truly feel that is a correct way to deal with toxic behavior… Should I slap the sh-t out of you?”

Crews went on to say he was disappointed with Hughley’s comments, writing, “I have looked up to you my whole career as one of the funniest most talented people I’ve ever seen.”

He added, “I remember when I saw you warming up the crowd at FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR and I thought ‘this man is a genius.’ But now you are an example of when comedy turns to sarcasm and cynicism. And you find it extremely easy to get jokes at someone else expense. You mock my success, but all I ever did was support you.”

Hughley hopped over to Instagram with a statement saying, “It’s always the people that know you the least, that judge you the most.”
