Hollywood Says Goodbye to Nipsey Hussle.
As previously reported, Nipsey was shot outside of his Marathon clothing store near the Crenshaw area of LA on Sunday. TMZ says a single gunman approached Nipsey and his crew, firing multiple rounds before fleeing “in what appeared to be a waiting vehicle.” Nipsey was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Since news of his death reported, the hip-hop community has taken to social media to express its condolences to Nipsey’s loved ones. Members of the general Hollywood community have also come together, from Issa Rae to Michael B. Jordan and Ava DuVernay.
Omari Hardwick Drew A LOOOT of Backlash for Kissing Beyoncé at the NAACP Image Awards.
The Bey Hive is BIG mad at Omari Hardwick for going in for not one, but TWO kisses while greeting Mrs. Carter. You’re playing with fire, sir.
Beyoncé did look a tad bit uncomfortable afterwards, and well, you already know the Bey Hive was ready to show out in full force.
“A respectable handshake would have worked just fine from Omari Hardwick,” one user wrote. “Women don’t need to be grabbed, hugged and kissed unless its your wife/girlfriend. Beyonce should have slapped him!”
Another added, “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.”
Peep the clip, along with some of the reactions, below:
