Crews was asked about 50 Cent’s comments of TMZ and took the high road.

“I prove that the size doesn’t matter when it comes to sexual assault,” Crews said.

The actor told the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier Tuesday that he refused a role in “Expendables 4” after put under pressure by the producer of the film to drop a sexual assault lawsuit against his former agency.

“It was a project where I had to refuse,” Crew told a group of legislators. “The perpetrators protecting perpetrators and this is one thing that I had to decide whether I was going to draw the line.”
