OMARI HARDWICK KISSED BEYONCÉ AT THE NAACP IMAGE AWARDS AND THE BEYHIVE ISN’T HAVING ITApril 1, 2019
If at first you don’t succeed, kiss Beyoncé twice! The Beyhive is buzzing over an awkward smooch Power star Omari Hardwick landed on “Entertainer of the Year” winner Beyoncé during a commercial break at the NAACP Image Awards.
Fans are appalled that Omari would not only invade Bey’s personal space, but would go so far to drop a ‘double kiss’ right in front of Bey’s husband, Jay-Z—who can vaguely be heard saying “Watch yourself” after the awkward encounter. Twitter users drew comparisons to the current #MeToo movement and expounded on the many ways men make women uncomfortable with their actions.
@OmariHardwick 2nd kiss was unnecessary & uncomfortable. Don’t do that again😡. We women so often get touched, kissed, groped & poked in instances exactly like this (at an event, at work, etc). WE DON’T LIKE IT. It’s time to no longer let these moments of discomfort slide. (1/3) https://t.co/ezFrdhvBsU

Others didn’t see an issue with Omari’s kiss and argued that it was simply a harmless gesture of politeness.
Pep making a big deal out of the Omari Hardwick kissing Beyonce on the cheek while saying bye. He was being polite saying hi and bye. The timing was just awkward. Don’t make this a man crossing the line thing. Ya’ll out here really trying to make something out of nothing! #power
