Michael Rainey Jr., who plays Ghost and Tasha’s son Tariq on the show, says he’s been receiving death threats on Instagram.
Power‘s Michael Rainey Jr. was left confused this week after receiving hundreds of death threats via social media and it might have been 50 Cent’s fault.The rapper, who created the TV show with Courtney Kemp, leaked several endings over the past several days to confuse eager fans about who shot James “Ghost” St. Patrick, portrayed by Omari Hardwick.
Rainey Jr., who plays St. Patrick’s son, Tariq, hates his father so he was already the prime suspect. His character shoots and kills St. Patrick in one leaked version of the finale, so over 300 people took it upon themselves to send the actor death threats after they saw it.
“Me going through my dms tryna figure out why I have 326 death threat messages,” the actor posted on Instagram.
