Actor Kadeem Hardison from the popular 1990s show A Different World is going viral this morning - with folks on Twitter calling him "obese."

The actor was on the red carpet a few weeks ago, for the premier of OWN's show 'Love Is' in Hollywood and appears to have put on a few.

The response to Kadeem's pics on Twitter have been nothing short of brutal. Here's the pic that has Kadeem doing numbers on social media this morning:


Kadeem, who is now 54, is best known for his role as Dwayne Wayne on A Different World, a spin-off of the long-running NBC sitcom The Cosby Show. He also starred in the Disney Channel series K.C. Undercover as Craig Cooper, the title character's father. Kadeem also played Norman in OWN's Love Is before being abruptly cancelled after being renewed for Season 2. He is now starring in Showtime drama, Black Monday.

Avid fans of the iconic late 1980s/early 1990s sitcom, A Different World may have already known this, but the actors who played two of the most beloved characters on the show, Dwayne Wayne and Freddie Brooks, dated in real life.

The stars, Kadeem Hardison and Cree Summer, recently took to Twitter to respond to a fan's observation from watching an episode of the series. In the scene, both actors could be seen sharing what appears to be a kiss, in the background.

"I need answers," the fan wrote, mentioning both actors in the tweet.

In response, Summer wrote, "We thought we were slick," before mentioning Hardison, who responded soon after, "..i'd say we were, only took em 25 years to catch up."
