D.L. Hughley Wants Terry Crews As First Guest on New Talk Show

Hughley hopes the actor is willing to discuss his #MeToo experience on ‘The D.L. Hughley Show’

LOS ANGELES, CA - November 09, 2017: Terry Crews at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation's Patron of the Artists Awards at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts/ LOS ANGELES - JAN 13: D. L. Hughley at the NBCUniversal TCA Press Day Winter 2016 at the Langham Huntington Hotel on January 13, 2016 in Pasadena, CA

Two weeks after exchanging words with Terry Crews over how he handled being harassed by film executive Adam Venit, D.L. Hughley hopes the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor is willing to discuss his #MeToo experience on new late-night series, The D.L. Hughley Show.

The comedian’s new show will launch next month on TVOne. When asked who he’d like as his first guest, the stand-up replied without hesitation, “Terry Crews,” reports Deadline.

“He’s a very big guy and I grew up a small guy. If you let someone do things to you, they keep doing it,” he said. Hughley also found problem with the #MeToo movement rallying behind Crews being “groped” while ignoring, race relations.

“I felt it was disingenuous of all those people from the #MeToo movement. Would they do that if he was beaten by police?”

Crews recently took issue with comedian Hughley’s assertion that the former athlete is too strong to allow a man to touch him inappropriately.

“I think it’s hard for me to think that a dude with all those muscles can’t tell an agent to not touch his ass … I don’t understand it,” Hughley said during an interview with VladTV. “I think that now everybody’s so into this notion that everybody’s like, ‘It happened to me, too.’ Aye motherf*cka, God gave you muscles so you can say, ‘No,’ and mean it.”

This led to a Twitter exchange between the two, ending with Crews asking Hughley, “should I slap the sh*t out of you?” View the exchange below.
