*Dang. Things are starting to get out of hand for Michael Rainey Jr. the “Power” actor who stars as Ghost’s son Tariq. Seems folks are confusing fiction with reality.
Because of his role and his excellent acting ability, he finds himself a victim of a lot of hate to the point where his life is being threatened.
Specifically, while “Power” characters Tommy and Dre have been ruled out as options, many are convinced it was Rainey’s character Tariq, who pulled the trigger because he had a serious vendetta against his father.
On Wednesday, Michael Rainey Jr. took to Instagram to expose the threats.
“Me going through my DMs tryna figure out why I have 326 death threat messages ??”

Wow. This is totally unnecessary and frightening.
By the way, Lela Loren, who plays Angela Valdez on the show, and Lala Anthony, both said they have experienced unpleasant interactions with fans due to their characters on the show, noted IceCreamConvos.
