Omari Harwick Slammed Over Insensitive Chadwick Boseman Tribute

Omari Hardwick is facing the wrath of social media after he posted a tribute to late Black Panther star, Chadwick Boseman -- but made it all about himself.

In the post. The Power star referred to himself as one of Boseman's "biggest competitors."

"I didn't have enough time that fateful night to share what i whispered to you. So now i will. But not before sharing what you said first. You said "O, go claim that award that's had your name on it from the gate...from the moment i met you. I whispered back, "Thank you Bose...for being the super hero I knew you were from the moment i met you." Then I quickly added...." we still gotta do that movie together!" Hardwick wrote.

"You replied: "Bet."... I hear you whispering more than ever my dearest brother of a Black Panther. One of my biggest honors was being one of your biggest competitors and an even bigger friend."

Hardwick continued, "You are HUGELY missed, but I got you next to me even more on the rest of this run. A wise man told me this morning..." In the Kingdom no crown is wasted. When one man drops his crown, another man picks it up. Pick it up O!"
