Power’s Omari Hardwick Claps Back After Being Accused Of Public Shaming A Fan
“Power” star, Omari Hardwick, wants y’all to know one thing- don’t come at him with no B.S.. That was the message he recently tried to send loud and clear to a few pissed off fans who blasted him for disrespecting another fan in the street. Their feud spilled over into social media and resulted in Omari damn near writing a pamphlet sized read to said fans.
What Had Happened Was…
The fiasco all started after one of Omari’s fans took to social media to blast him over the way he’d treated a female fan when she asked for a photo with him. Apparently, Omari was out chillin’ with his wife, Jae, and their young daughter at a public place somewhere. A female fan noticed it was “Ghost” from “Power” and she was nearby. Therefore she proceeded to do what any fan would- ask for selfie to relish the moment.
Unfortunately, she apparently got her face cracked (not literally), when Omari reportedly yelled at her and turned her down.
As a result, another fan commented to him on social media:
“Heard you yelled at a girl who asked for a picture because you were with your family..in her defense she didn’t who was [with] you. You actors be acting like your God. Knock it off playboy.”
That struck a nerve with Omari and he then proceeded to deliver a very lengthy clap-back. He started with an explanation from his viewpoint:
“Let me kill yo f*ckery, playboy. She got out of her car to follow me and my family maybe 200 yards…as this older sweet nanny tells us. She gets to me and ask for a pic. I say, as I always do, God bless you, I don’t do [pictures] when I’m with my family. Respectfully. She then responds, ‘So, I can’t get a picture with you?!’ With SHOCK in her face. She never acknowledges my family with a LOOK. I go, ‘Huh? You didn’t hear what I said?’”
But then Omari got a surprise when the actual fan he allegedly yelled at in the street, hopped into his comments to blast him for being a “liar”:
“You’re a liar. I walked off after saying, ‘Ah, really? Okay.’ Walked across the street, you started yelling…Your fans are who made you. A simple, ‘No, I don’t do pics when I’m with my family would have been nice.’ Your attitude is what shocked me, not the fact you wouldn’t take the pic.”
The accuser continued in another comment:
“…I know the truth and so [does] he. I’ve moved on and so has he. My thing is, don’t lie about it. I hate a liar. If you’re not approachable then so be it, I’m not the first he’s done this to, and won’t be the last.”
“We absolutely know the truth. You are a lost human. God bless your soul.”
At first the feud seemed to be a done dada… but then a third fan supported and blasted Omari at the same time…that’s when all hell broke lose:
“Your true fans understand. That’s why you should ignore this foolery. I hate that celebs primarily respond to negativity instead of their ‘true’ fans positivity, however; I do understand that you’re human and that comes with emotions.”
Omari then went ALL the way off and called the woman involved in the shouting incident a dark, spirited woman. He also checked the other fan who called him out and added a few choice words to get his full point across…
“Please equally acknowledge how much I respond way more to beautiful positive real ones. So this is a misnomer for me as well. This fuck shit needed to be checked and never just for me. But for ALL in my position built like my character as a person or NOT. And for the you’s of the world equally…if your job came with the same mess.
But yea let’s keep it 100…if not 500, i respond to REAL fans way at an 8. I respond to not negativity but rather REAL high level fuck shit & that is still at a 2. From YOU….to everyone who chose to comment in defense & those who liked my comment I ALWAYS acknowledge and thank you as a true fans. Hence me putting quotations around the word as it pertained to that lost dark spirited woman.
I’m a man who will always give back. Even my checking of f*ckery is a carefully chosen ‘give back’ to the winners in life who ain’t got my stage size or heart size. Said it 100x…rather go call it a day and stare at a mountain listening to Donny Hathaway before I lose me.”
This isn’t the first time Omari’s been blasted by his fans…and pretty sure it won’t be the last. Who’s side are y’all on in this case though- Omari’s or the fans?
