Omari Hardwick Claps Back at Social Media Hater Who Says He Shouldn’t Discuss Race
Omari Hardwick is shutting down the haters.
The Power star posted a photo over the weekend that had a few people talking, including one particular Instagram user who was not happy with the post.
Despite the troll’s negative comments, the actor clapped back with an epic response.
All the drama began after the 42-year-old shared a photo congratulating his friend Tank on his new project and encouraging his followers to support important movements, like Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protests.
“Support is the [key emoji]. Whether it's brother @kaepernick7 of his actual call in life,” he captioned the post on Saturday, September 30.
“Whether it's @therealtank on the release day of his new project of his platform in life. 1 thing matters.”
He continued, “Deciphering whether said support is of a righteous movement. Then...SUPPORTING it all the way through.”
One user was not happy with the father of two bringing up the NFL star’s protests and wrote a long response in the comments.
“I have gotten in a number of convos/arguments about race this week and have since made my fb page a NO race page because it was taking all my time going back and forth with people about it,” the user wrote.
“Race and the issues [that] surround it are issues that people are pretty set in their ways about… people feel how they feel and I get that,” the person continued.
“What I wanted to say to you after this comment was: you are married to a white woman and have 2(3) mixed (not black) children with blonde hair and very light skin. (I really like your sons name btw!).
“Wouldn’t it be better, instead of supporting people based on the color of their skin, and further dividing people to pick sides, to just support people period? Regardless of colors. There are many causes, many valid angles, many people (of all shades and backgrounds) who need support.
The user continued, “Why not just be the best human being possible, kind to everyone, supportive of causes that you deem fit… and not make it about the color of people’s skin?!”
Needless to say, the Being Mary Jane star was confused by the comment and clapped back with the best response ever.
“Quite confused by your post. This post proves you have no idea who I am. Appreciate your support of the what I do [sic],” he said back.
“As in job. And disrespectful to tell me what I have as in my tribe. Fall back. Wrong move with your mouth. God speed to you.”
