Actor Terry Crews spoke at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights and brought up the need for men to speak up as both victims and in their roles as sometime perpetrators.
Crews went public last year with his personal account of being groped by a Hollywood executive at an industry event.
He cited the "cult of toxic masculinity" as the main culprit of the widespread presence of sexual assault against both men and women.
Crews said that men are likely to protect one another, even at the expense of the victim.
As a solution, Crews says the key is having accountability and taking a stand even if it comes at a personal sacrifice.
