Omari Hardwick’s wife, Jennifer Pfautch, shared a glimpse into how their family celebrated Christmas, but she also had a word for trolls.
The Hardwick family chose to go the fun route this season as can be seen from Pfautch’s Christmas photo. Twinning in red-and-white striped onesies, Pfautch and Hardwick channeled their inner children with the former getting a piggyback ride from her husband.
The “Power” actor and Pfautch looked super excited, and their faces said it all. The mom-of-two even added a touch of glam to her onesie with a red turban.
She captioned the cute photo:
“May your Christmas be filled with the same joy, wonder and excitement of a toddler hyped up on tons of sugar, no nap and the belief that good shit magically appears under decorated trees. Merry Christmas from Mr. & Mrs Claus.”
Pfautch also chose to be proactive and left a remark for internet bullies who may want to come for her again.
“P.S. before all you wise-asses start...no, you may not sit on Mr. Claus’ lap but you can enjoy the view.”
Ever since Hardwick gained fame, his interracial marriage has come under intense scrutiny, and it seems there’s hardly a time the actor or his wife are not shutting down critics.
In 2014, a supposed fan referred to Pfautch as “ugly,” prompting the “Being Mary Jane” star to fire back in a series of angry tweets.
“I wish all of you could experience celebrity for a week to understand the LEVEL of ugly in certain diseases (called human beings),” said Hardwick in one tweet.
“I want to personally THANK all of you who have only loved supported PROPERLY challenged me & recognized GOD's truth of my existence & those I would die & kill FOR. I love u back. I root for you all. Those who have created your own truth so to make your despicable selves feel better, with zero care for those like me who've done zero to you, I want to harm you....while EQUALLY praying for the misery known as you.”
More recently, Hardwick also had to defend his family after a female fan called him out for refusing to take a picture with her because he was spending time with his family.
The “For Colored Girls” actor confirmed the incident and said the woman failed to acknowledge his family or his right as a human being to say “No.”
Critics notwithstanding, Pfautch continues to be grateful for her family, and earlier this year celebrated 51 years of the Supreme Court decision legalizing interracial marriage in America.
As she proudly noted:
“Love will always win.”
Pfautch and Hardwick have been married since 2011, and they have two kids, son Brave, and daughter Nova.
