According to BET, Method Man’s character, lawyer David McLean, has gathered a slew of hate from viewers of Power Book II: Ghost. The rapper took to Twitter to combat the amount of hate he’s received from fans who confuse him with his character.
“Wtf my timeline is it up! What’s with all the hate hahaha!” he wrote on Twitter. “Let me just say this for the record David McLean is not Method Man…Method Man is not Davis McLean…Power got the best fans, hands down! But don’t get your a– whooped tho.”
He continued by writing that he wants fans to use his character’s name when talking about the character’s actions.
“I wish u all would use Davis’ name and not mine…for example instead of Method Man gotta die…say Davis McLean gotta die, u heard!” he wrote. “Don’t want my family to think ppl want me dead. I’m mad I had to tweet this…hahaha Love you all but don’t get these hands.”
