The 46-year-old actor, who plays Ghost in the STARZ crime drama Power, posted a solemn photo of himself sitting down, writing in the caption the poem “Invictus” by English poet William Ernest Henley.

The poem holds a special meaning for Hardwick, who pledged Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. It’s customary that pledges learn “Invictus” in order to become a member.

However, one of his followers was clearly left unimpressed by the poignant post as it wasn’t related to James ‘Ghost’ St. Patrick. “We want ghost f**k what you talking about,” they wrote.

“I am ghOst. I am first O. I am everything. You want ghost cuz i put me in him,” Hardwick responded, to which another troll wrote, “Honestly I agree holy s**t .. he was kool until I hear him in real life .. matter fact where’s tommy.”

This was the last straw for Hardwick, it appears, as he clapped back with a very fiery response. “Now you ….you the clown. When i slap the s**t outa you (cuz you don’t deserve more than that) outa you….i will remind you thas from me, Omari,” he wrote.

“B**ch a** f**k boy. Go be just THAT. Clown a** ni***s. Should go ask your Momz if she can rebirth you. Matta fact….go find Tommy & Joe. See if they don’t say the same.”
