Terrence Howard has been married three times thus far and has been accused of assaulting his wives on a few occasions. Although he never really wanted to speak on the allegations, he has now decided to open up. He sent out a series of tweets in which he spoke about domestic violence.
What shocked people the most is that he mentioned that instead of being abusive, he was the one who was the victim of abuse in one of his marriages. “For years, ever since these allegations have been brought against me I’ve been told to not address it. I can’t remain quiet. This double standard that has permitted abusive women to feel that they can assault a man and not reap where they have sowed is wrong!” the famous actor wrote on Twitter.
“I’ve never been abusive to anyone in my entire life. I have loved and paid the price for love. I am the same loving being since day 1! When I say that I’ve made mistakes, it is not regarding violence but judgment. Trusting the wrong people!” he added.
He ended his statement by saying that “This double standard that has permitted abusive women to feel that they can assault a man and not reap where they have sowed is wrong!” Many fans instantly agreed with Terrence after he mentioned this double standard.
