Fresh off the 50th NAACP Image Awards Sunday night, the interwebs haven’t stopped buzzing (it could also be the Beyhive) about what perceivably happened in this viral video between ‘Power’ star Omari Hardwick and Beyonce.
I saw the headline and I was shaking in my boots because I was like this has to be a mistake right? I’ve also met Omari and interviewed him several times and he’s a good dude. Here’s the video that has the interwebs and the Beyhive upset.
this nigga Omari Hardwick really kissed Beyoncé on her mouth. I want him in prison. QUICKLY! pic.twitter.com/20Ep6TTpfF— 𝖙𝖍𝖊𝖊 𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖑𝖑𝖎𝖔𝖓™ (𝘻𝘷𝘥𝘥𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘤𝘦) (@yoncedastallion) March 31, 2019
Omari went to congratulate Beyonce for winning, kissed her on the cheek, and then kissed her again. You can tell that Beyonce’s body language changed INSTANTLY and people have a lot to say. As a woman, I understand that boundaries often get crossed by some men feeling like they should hug, squeeze, kiss, and touch you just because. Not cool but at least to me this doesn’t seem to be the case. His camp reportedly said it was an accident.
The other highlights that happened during the show also include ‘Black Panther’ star Chadwick Boseman shouting out God and HU (Howard University) after winning the first award of the night, Yara Shahidi saying she stands with Jussie Smollett during the acceptance speech for #blackish winning an award, and Jay Z be honored with the President’s Award.
Let me know your thoughts. Do you think people are overreacting? Ladies have you been in a situation when it seemed innocent but you felt like lines were crossed even if it was accidental?
