Blast From The Past!
Remember William from the TV sitcom Girlfriends? I loveddd that show and I still watch the reruns when I can catch them.
Well, Reggie Hayes, the actor who played the character William Dent, has recently made some headlines due to his weight gain since the show went off air in 2008.
We haven't seen much from the actor since the popular show, aside from some feature appearances here and there on films and shows. Now, his recent pictures all of a sudden have been circulating around online and internet peeps are not being too nice about it.
The 47-year-old actor - who is also a NAACP Image Award winner - spoke out about the online bullying and has been retweeting the positive comments he received on Twitter:
It a shame that with all I've accomplished in my life. People from my own community can't wait to kick me when im down.— reggie hayes (@reggieh69) August 13, 2016

@reggieh69 unhappy people need to have someone to kick down and feel as low as them. If ur life is so great you'd want to spread it around— Toni (@lynzzjo) August 14, 2016
