Entitled Fan Complains About Terry Crews Denying A Pic, He Responds And Tells The Real Story

51-year-old Terry Crews has one of the most recognizable faces on television. An actor, comedian, activist, artist, and a former American football (also known as ‘handegg’) player, Crews is a veritable Renaissance man. But some people know him only as ‘that awesome dude from the Old Spice commercials.’

Wherever you might know Crews from and whatever you admire him for, there’s no excuse for being rude to him. When one fan complained on Twitter that Crews refused to take a picture with her, the star hit back epically. The reaction was instantaneous: Twitter users rushed to support Crews, while the rude fan tried to save her own skin and backpedaled almost immediately.

But the star explained what really happened

It all started Saturday night when Erica Contreras went to Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights, an annual celebration at the theme park. She then approached Crews and asked to take her picture.

Here’s how people reacted to the exchange on Twitter

But her and the star’s accounts of what happened that night differ. After Crews replied to Contreras, she backpedaled and claimed that it wasn’t her who had been rude to the star, but somebody else.

Whether or not Crews or Contreras is right, we’ll leave that for you to decide, dear Readers. Bored Panda has reached out to both Crews and Contreras for comments about what happened that night.

Crews’ simple but epic response went viral online. More than 84,800 people (and counting) liked it on Twitter. Furthermore, the reply was retweeted 7,200 times.

Crews, who may be spicy but definitely isn’t all that old yet, has done a bit of everything. He’s been in films like Friday After Next (2002), White Chicks (2004), Idiocracy (2006), Blended (2014), and the Expendables series. And since 2013, he has played NYPD Sergeant Terry Jeffords in the sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

What’s more, he is currently hosting America’s Got Talent in 2019. Crews used to be a defensive end and linebacker in the NFL for the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, and Washington Redskins, as well as in the World League of American Football with Rhein Fire, and college football at Western Michigan University.

The fan instantly backpedaled

I've never felt the need to bug anyone for a picture, it just isn't in me.... I shared a train carriage with Jon Pertwee in the 80's as a young kid and I don't think it'll ever get better than that. Top man.

Same, I've seen a few 'famous people' - Peter Andre was at a Jacksons concert in London a while back, I saw him walk in with his family and he was almost instantly swarmed by people. I sat there thinking why can't leave him (and his family) alone in peace? He's watching the show just like him.

Celebrities are humans like the rest of us, they have the same rights to say no, to have their personal space respected, and to have people treat them like they're human beings instead of zoo animals. Especially when he's out with his kids, just let him be a dad! I don't even understand the obsession with taking pics with celebrities, except like wanting more likes on Instagram or something. If you genuinely liked a celebrity, you would respect their rights to personal space and rights to say no.

Exactly! What I can't get over is when you pay to see them (ie: a convention), wait in line at *their table* (with their name on it), pay for their autograph (taken by their handler)... and then they're rude/dismissive to you when you get to the table (aka: The place where they're being paid to be, in the time slot they're advertised/paid to be there)... because they don't like your name (ie: "Who do I address this to? What? That's not the right name!") - seriously. wth.

do not ask famous people for a signature or picture unless they are at an actual event. they deserve to do things with friends and family without people asking for something every minutes. they shouldn't have to defend wanting a day out, just leave them alone.
