The NAACP Image awards were held Sunday night in Los Angeles, honoring some of the best and brightest in black entertainment.

Jay-Z was awarded the President’s award while wife Beyoncé was awarded with the Entertainer of the Year award. But before Beyoncé even took the stage, a little controversy erupted.

Power actor Omari Hardwick greeted the Carters and as is pretty standard in Hollywood, kissed Beyoncé on the cheek as they embraced. However, as the two were about to move on, Hardwick kissed Beyoncé again, drawing plenty of ire and criticism on social media.

If anything, we know the BeyHive is going to react something serious but it was also those who don’t subscribe to the BeyHive that were upset at the gesture.

Hey, maybe it was Omari’s first ever interaction with Queen Bey? You never know with these things.

    Wow, the stupid stuff people pay attention to. Omari is married to a trans man looking white woman, I’m sure he wants no part of any black woman. But then again looking at the s**t he sleeps with Beyonce is probably refreshing to the eyes. I also found it strange that he left is Becky at home, why didn’t he bring her to the black award show? Why do these proud swirlers hide their pale trophies away from black events, I wonder is he embarrassed by the all the nasty comments he gets on social media in reference to selling out with a hard face snow bunny.
