Omar Epps Wears Leather Skirt On ‘The View,’ Twitter Erupts [Video]

Omar Epps Wears Leather Skirt On 'The View', Twitter Erupts

When Omar Epps wore a leather mini-skirt on live TV, you might have expected a reaction. But then Marlon Wayans and Lord Jamar started fighting over Epps’ fashion choices publicly on Twitter.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, Omar Epps and Tupac once appeared in a movie together.

Rapper and actor Omar Hashim Epps is best known for his work in Major League II, Juice, Higher Learning, Scream 2, The Wood, In Too Deep, and Love and Basketball. More recently, he’s taken on a role in an ABC TV show called Resurrection, which is is based upon a novel where the dead begin returning to the loved ones they left behind.

Omar plays as an immigration officer named Martin Bellamy who returns a young boy to his own family only to be shocked when it’s claimed the son died 30 years ago by drowning. As more and more of the dead return they’re said to be very hungry, but it seems unlikely ABC is trying to create another The Walking Dead.

And that’s where we come to Omar Epps skirt. He went on to The View in order to promote Resurrection, but it was what he was wearing, and not what he had to say about the TV show, that has caught everyone’s attention. While Omar was wearing pants, he also wore what appeared to be a leather mini-skirt over them, which seems like an odd fashion sense at the least.

Lord Jamar stated his displeasure with the Epps’ fashion statement by proclaiming, “So now Omar Epps has joined the skirt gang? Say it isn’t so! Old heads supposed to know better.” Marlon Wayans attacked him for saying this, asking why the other man was “taking close shots of a n****s crotch and tweeting it.” He left off with this insult: “You wearing an invisible dress?’

Jamar then claimed Wayans must secretly like Epps’ fashion style. The response was to claim the other was stuck in the past, still wearing “Fubu and baggy Mecca hoodies.” As you can imagine, the Twitter fight devolved from there on, with f-bombs and insults about wearing dresses being passed back and forth.

    If he likes it and feels comfortable in it, more power to him. Kudos to him or anyone else who is confident enough to be themselves and not care what anyone else thinks or says.

    Didn't look like he was comfortable, he was walking like he had a broomstick up his ass.

    You know what, I am so sick of Hollywood. They would do anything to emasculate the black man. Their hatred is so strong they don't want any masculinity been shown in reference to what people feel the black man is and should be. They want the world to know that he can be brought and sold. EVERYONE knows Omar for playing great acting roles which represent black men who are strong and confident. They choose to put him in a skirt. Really???? I bet you won't the Arnold Schwarzenegger in a skirt.

    Watching this was sick. When I saw him walk out I was like r u serious? !? I don't believe he walked out in that. I've always liked him as an actor but I never expected him to do something like this.

  8. Tyrus Goshay

    Embarassing. And to watch brothers try to defend this by saying "He's moving Hip-Hop culture…" We can really be dumb sometimes.

  9. Paul Squeteri

    As far as I can tell it was his own decision to do it. He was promoting a show he is on. A lot of actors do this just not in such an eye-catching way. No one emasculated him. In fact, I think it was brave of him to take such a risk. I don't think that is how it is being perceived, but it was his own choice.

    The boondocks: Riley-That ninja is gay. Judge Joe Brown: man up!. Fred Sanford: It's the big one, I'm coming to join you honey… Lol!.

    What the fuck is going on in
    Hollyweird! This is all part of the Illuminati GAY Agenda.
    Illuminati goal #(?) blur the lines between male and female gender roles. Or reduce the masculinity all together. The "illuminati" goal has always been to destroy men's masculinity thru their queer bohemian agenda. I will ridicule and demoralize any so called man who wears this woman attire.They're trying to destroy the masculine male role model and replace it with weak, effeminate males so the kids grow up weak, with absolutely no family values, so they are ripe for the picking when it comes time to kick population control into high gear.

  12. Debbie Ross

    Hassan Price , why is this so offensive? He's wearing it not you! that's whats wrong with people, judging people who try to be different…

  13. Gerald Cherenfant

    Take it from this AAM, from the look on his face…he did not look confident nor masculine. I guess thats what the producers wanted.

  14. Leah Hannah

    Kem, that's not even the kilt that is a damn mini skirt with some pans under it. these guys I told what to wear and told what to do in reference to how they want the image of black men to be put out there. Now it is up to them to do that. But it has its consequences that they feel that they have to do to preserve a certain image financially for themselves instead of standing up for themselves just like Dave Chappelle did.

  15. Kem Davis

    I don't believe that. That's sounds crazy. So white people are in a board room trying to figure out way to emasculate Black men???? Come on now!!!

  16. Kem Davis

    It's fashion, I don't think it's that serious. But this is just my opinion :)

  17. Kem Davis

    Not my choice for my man to wear but at least he didn't come on with his pants sagging and an XXXXL white tee!

  18. Gerald Cherenfant

    Everyone knows these morning shows have a target audience. When it comes to ratings it's all about appealing to this audience. It's a scientific fact this particular demographic has known biases and fears which producers/writers feel compelled to appease. It's all about the IMAGE and what it represents. As BM, if we won't lighten our skin or straighten our hair the alternative is to feminize our IMAGE in order to appear non-threatening and/or approachable.

  19. Paul Squeteri

    Ms. Davis you are too smart for this issue. I think I am going to call on you to talk some sense to my friends when necessary. Are you available?

  20. Kem Davis

    Sorry Gerald, I'm not buying it. He wore that because he wanted to. And go back and look at more Omar Epps interviews, that's how he always looks, he's probably just a nervous person. Not because of a mini skirt the "white man" MADE him put on. SMH

  21. Alan Glenn

    Seems like this was Omar's choice, why are we blaming this on Hollywood? Omar's a grown man, he can say "no"!

  22. Andre Morrison

    Notice he didn't stand completely straight up when asked to stand. It was like I was at age 6 or 7, embarrassed because of the attention it attracts that I'm unsure of the response to come. This broth tellin the world afterward it was a tribute to the natives, lol. The natives wore feee flowing clothing, war paint to camo themselves and ear and nose jewelry, they were hunters. He needs to stop.

  23. Andre Morrison

    & if you don't think the joke is on us as black men, you're in the dark – ask Dave Chappelle. He woke up and realized they were laughing AT him and not with him. Emasculating of black men is REAL.
