Omari Hardwick Faces Backlash After Kissing Beyonce At NAACP Awards

Ruh roh.

A video posted online shows the “Power” actor greeting Beyoncé at the 50th NAACP Image Awards this past weekend.

When Hardwick embraces the singer, who took home the Entertainer of the Year award, he kisses her on the right cheek and gives her a hug. He then kisses her on the cheek a second time.

I know what Omari Hardwick did to Beyonce with the kisses may seem trivial to some of you, but that's what literally happens when we greet some of your dads, brothers, boyfriends, colleagues and bosses. There are boundaries and he encroached... it's disconcerting
