For the last two seasons, Omari Hardwick has received an abundance of praise for his work on Power — but only from viewers, unfortunately, the critics act like the show doesn’t exist. And that, precisely, is why creator 50 Cent was pissed off and offered an apology to his leading man.

HipHollywood spoke to Hardwick about the apology, which he opened up about for the first time. “He’s been an amazing advocate, champion and brother of dude, this is where you’re supposed to be,” the actor stated. He also talked about the comparisons and competition between his show and FOX’s “Empire”. “No disrespect to Empire, but we are a show that should be reckoned with, you know, a force to be reckoned with as well.”

You may remember in January, Fiddy went off on social media after the cast of his hit Starz show didn’t receive tickets to the Golden Globes. “This is how Omari looked at me, When STARZ said they don’t have tickets to the Golden Globes,” he captioned an angry photo of “Power” star Omari Hardwick. “I said ‘I know, I’ll fix it.’ Sometimes you don’t have to say a word to express how you feel.”

The rapper went on to apologize to Omari for giving him a “first class seat in the ni**a section.”

Tracee Ellis Ross Spills The Real Tea On ‘Black-ish’ Wage Demands + Deon Cole, Jenifer Lewis Weigh In

Published

Tracee Ellis Ross is unveiling the truth behind recent reports that she was demanding more money for her time spent on ABC’s Black-ish.

Just last week, The Hollywood Reporter suggested Tracy was in negotiations and asking for more for not only going into her fourth season on the hit show, but because her male co-host, Anthony Anderson, makes significantly more than she does.

The report also claimed that if she didn’t make any headway, she might step away and consider guest starring on other shows.

Over the weekend, Ellis addressed the reports and didn’t exactly deny the claims. In a lengthy statement shared on social media, Ross said that she “was in renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during the fourth season of a successful show.”

She continued, “I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is to be a fully realized black woman on TV.”

She did, however, confirm that claims there were threats are false. “I wish I could have been called by the reporter to confirm that,” she wrote.

Tracy’s statement falls right in line with what her co-stars, Deon Cole and Jenifer Lewis, explained to HipHollywood on Sunday night during the 2018 SAG Awards.

When asked about Ross’ desire to earn more money, Lewis said, “Tracee should have more money, you should have more money, every woman should have more money because we’ve been in the background too long. ”

Television’s favorite mom continued, “We’ve got grab her by the pussy in the White House and women are not standing for it anymore. Black-ish is a very important show, we are dealing with all the pressing issues of our time … This is the time to look it in the face and address it and come through the fire. Women are not taking it anymore.”

Deon also shut down rumors that Ross would be taking a back seat, telling us “There’s two sides to every story. Tracee is fine, everybody is fine, and everybody is getting paid. Everybody is eating. It’s all love I promise you.”
