Rainey said he can’t take the incident “lightly” because he “would be in serious trouble if the roles were reversed.”

He added, “The fact is, sexual assault is never okay, regardless of gender or status. We’re all human, and we should respect each other.

“Most importantly, we should always respect ourselves.”

“After the actions that occurred during my stream last night I would like to sincerely apologize to Michael and his family for what took place,” he wrote on X Monday.

“My little sister was completely wrong and out of line. What she did was very inappropriate and unacceptable. I am truly embarrassed and disgusted by her actions.”

James said he would “completely respect” whatever decision the “Barbershop: The Next Cut” star will take regarding the incident and has “banned” his sister from participating in any of his future streams.

Page Six has reached out to Rainey to see if legal action will be taken but we did not immediately hear back.
