Actor Terry Crews comes down hard on “cult of toxic masculinity”

Remember back when Terry Crews was “just” the Old Spice pitch guy? Or “just” Chris Rock’s dad on “Everybody Hates Chris?”

Lately, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star has gotten more headlines for becoming part of the #MeToo movement — ever since he came out and said that a powerful Hollywood agent groped him. When you first hear about Crews story, you immediately think: “That big muscle-bound dude? Ain’t nobody harass him. And if they did, why didn’t he punch them out?”

Well, Crews gets into that and more in what was pretty much a whole episode of Megyn Kelly TODAY on Tuesday morning. It’s worth watching as much as you can see — if for no other reason that he explains WHY he didn’t punch that guy in the face. And if you’re thinking it has to do with his skin color . . . you ‘d be right.

From there, he rages against “toxic masculinity” — that unspoken “man code” that says that because he’s big and strong, that he can’t feel pain, that he can’t feel violated, and that his own “card-carrying membership” in the toxic manhood club almost cost him his marriage.

It’s pretty powerful stuff.  Watch as much as you can of the whole show, starting with this clip . . .
