This should come as no surprise–art imitates life, especially when it comes to ‘Law & Order SVU‘. Reportedly, the popular NBC series will tackle two UBER popular, yet controversial ‘hot topics’. According to the Huffington Post, “SVU” takes on the Ray Rice elevator assault and the Jay Z and Solange elevator fight in the latest episode to show just how mysterious yet intriguing scandals can be when there’s no audio and only raw camera footage.

Keep in mind, the episode’s storyline is completely different, but the show runner (Warren Leight) uses the elevator controversy, to keep the series in tune with the manner in how news leaks now, which as of late is from security camera footage being released. In the episode, famous basketball star Shakir “The Shark” Wilkins is accused of rape by a PR employee from his clothing line.

The episode airs this Wednesday.
