As previously reported, Parker was accused of rape back 1999, but he was later acquitted. But check out Trey’s post on Instagram:
When someone criticized Trey for downplaying Parker’s acquittal, he clapped back immediately and said, “and why didn’t this come up before any of his other movies? The ones not about blacks being enslaved and treated less than humane? Why now? I’ll tell you to derail you from the issue at hand.”
