He then gives her another kiss that appears to land toward the corner of her mouth before walking away.
Hardwick's kisses got mixed reviews on Twitter.
Some thought Hardwick overstepped.
"A respectable handshake would have worked just fine from Omari Hardwick," one personexpressed. "Women don’t need to be grabbed, hugged and kissed unless its your wife/girlfriend."
Similarly, anotherdirected: "Fellas, take this Omari Hardwick with Beyoncé situation and apply it to your interactions with women. Handshakes are the answer. You never know if something you’re doing with the hug and kisses on the cheek will make a woman feel awkward so just don’t do."
