“how to make someone’s passing about you” taught by omari hardwick

i’ve fonted it quite a few times:

Omari Hardwick ain’t Ghost from “Power”

hell,
ghost made so many weird decisions before his death,
they might be one in the same.
omari had a very strange tribute for the late chadwick boseman…

“one of my biggest honors was being one of your biggest competitors.”
font what now?
his whole “tribute” came off narc-y and attentionisto af.
bad enough,
it was a video of him.
he had this to say when someone called him out:

the comments got limited shortly after.

social media really has a way of ruining folks.
here is an idea:

When someone dies,
why not just pay tribute to them as a person?

omari has always been “this person” outside his roles so i’ll try to stop acting surprised.
i really need to stop doing that.

lowkey: i thought michael b jordan’s was extremely sad…

I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything. I wish we had more time. One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness. I wish we had more time. Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here. I wish we had more time. I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is! Rest In Power Brother.

  1. Maybe its me but I do not see how he made it about him…he shared a conversation and how he felt. People cant get mad posting what they feel…the comment made it about him and this article is making it more than it has to be and i doubt Mr. Boseman would want any of that…he seemed from afar too humble and quiet..even when i saw him on campus, he wasnt about drama ..

  2. As awful an actor as MBJ is, he was the only one getting prime roles similar to Chadwick.

    Omari is delusional to even think he was in Chadwicks league. He probably couldn’t even book the same auditions.

    If he couldn’t get a one Emmy nomination as the lead on a cable show for 5 seasons he’s pretty much peaked lol. They literally give any decent cable show an Emmy nomination lmao

  3. Omari is short (under 6ft) so I’m not surprised. Constantly trying to prove he’s man enough, good enough etc. Even though he’s a little short for my taste, always thought he was sexy. Seeing his napoleon complex is a huge turn off.

  4. “One of your biggest competitors” it’s scary to see how entertainers view themselves, cause to the average person they don’t sit at the same table or have the same “value” as actors

  5. Michael B. Jordan’s above tribute to Chadwick Boseman is beautiful. I do wonder, however, if he wrote it or if it was written by someone for him. In any case, it is absolutely beautiful and it hits all the right notes. Bravo!

  6. Omari is a raging narcissist. Watch him in any interview. Listen to how he speaks about other black male actors, Michael B. Jordan, Larenz Tate, and others. Dude’s ego is insane.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
