Actor Omari Hardwick, star of the 50 Cent hit series POWER, is trending on social media this morning for kissing Beyonce on the lips. The incident occurred at the NAACP Awards last night, and Omari smooched Beyonce's lips - right in front of her husband Jay Z.

Hardwick greeted Queen Bey, 37, and husband Jay-Z, 49, in the front row inside the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Saturday, March 30. Hardwick, who famously plays Ghost on the blockbuster cable series, took a few photos with Jay-Z and then moved to kiss Beyoncé twice. 

Omari's people are saying that the kiss was an accident. But some folks on social media don't believe that story.

Here's the video:

Omari's show Power won an NAACP Image award last night for "Outstanding Drama Series." The actor stood up and approached Beyonce to have her congratulate him.

The actor kissed Beyonce once on the cheek. Then Omari went back for seconds and kissed Jay Z's wife again, this time the kiss landed on Beyonce's lips.

You can see in the video that Beyonce looked a bit upset with the kiss. And Jay Z's face changed too, proving that he was not comfortable with Omari's affection towards his wife.

The video is going viral across the internet.
