Some fans are saying that Omari Hardwick's post remembering Chadwick Boseman is too much about himself.
Omari Hardwick shared a heartfelt tribute to his friend Chadwick Boseman, who helped him get his first few roles in Hollywood, but some fans are unhappy with the way he worded it.
"I didn’t have enough time that fateful night to share what i whispered to you. So now i will," wrote Omari Hardwick on Instagram, speaking about his acceptance speech at the NAACP Image Awards. "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!' You replied: 'Bet.'"

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!” 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. 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!” * * From king Chadwick to king Hardwick....i will do just THAT my brother. Rest in your glory ðð¾ð¦ ð PS: Brave has worn his Black Panther costume everyday for the past 3 weeks.. trust me I’ll make sure he keeps wearing it.....
He went on to share more memories of himself and Chadwick. While his fans are happy about what he had to say about the actor's tragic passing following a battle with cancer, some are criticizing Hardwick for apparently making it all about himself.
"Ummm how did you manage to make Chadwick passing about you?" asked one fan on his post. "You played a drug dealer and Chadwick played some of the greatest inspirations for African-Americans. You can’t even equate the two."
