‘Power’ actor says he’s received 300 death threats before series finale
50 Cent put his marketing skills to good use by leaking several endings to “Power” in an effort to confuse fans about who killed leading man James “Ghost” St. Patrick.
Some fans immediately suspected the culprit was St. Patrick’s son, Tariq, played by Michael Rainey Jr. In one leaked version of the ending, Tariq is, in fact, the killer, which allegedly prompted more than 300 people to threaten Rainey over the fictional character’s actions.
“Me going through my dms tryna figure out why I have 326 death threat messages ??,” the actor captioned photos of him looking confused.
His “Power” co-star LaLa Anthony commented with five facepalm emojis while co-star Nature Naughton, who plays his mother Tasha — another suspect in Ghost’s murder — shared two laughing emojis followed by two more facepalms.
In a November 2019 interview with Page Six, Naughton said she could understand why her character may have pulled the trigger, telling us, “Her emotions just start to come to a head. Tasha is thinking, ‘wow, I’m over here riding for you, lying to the police for you, and now you want to come for me and my son?!”
The sixth and final season of “Power” airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. on STARZ.
