Folks love “Power,” but they still give Omari Hardwick a hard time.
The actor was bombarded with criticism and gay slurs after he posted a photo of him kissing 50 Cent on the cheek to celebrate him receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

When I saw the photo, I simply saw a man showing another man love. But, when it was posted on several blogs – the floodgates of ignorance flew open.
Omari took to Instagram to respond to the foolishness with poetry.
The teacher in my takes a moment to try & teach. The killer side in me says F the ones who choose to NOT learn & abide by G O D. I can’t turn the sheep in wolf clothing when they cheat their own 15 minute moment. I can only earn the respect of the wolves who walk wit me on the sheep’s road to atonement. & don’t blame me. I see you chose the direction my poem went.
