This week, actor Omar Epps joined in the trend after he made an appearance on The View wearing a blazer with black pants and a skirt. And of course there were folks who had something to say about it, including Brand Nubian’s Lord Jamar.

He wrote on Twitter:

So now OMAR EPPS has joined the SKIRT GANG??? Say it sint so!!! Old heads suppose to know better. Wish I could say I photo shopped these pics of dudes in skirts to try & fool ya’ll b.u.t. They’re actually wearing them. Smh.

What’s funny is @omarepps new show “Resurrection” looks interesting & was on my radar to watch especially cause he’s in it. #whytheskirt? I still might check it out, although we gotta let these SELL OUTS know we not supporting them when they cross enemy lines. We need to start putting these CLOWNS on trial for crimes against humanity! Just like they did with complicit Nazi ‘ s .

Meanwhile, Omar didn’t take the criticism too lightly, and he took to Instagram to explain his decision to wear the skirt by posting a photo of men in an African tribe wearing traditional dresses, with the caption:

It’s sad that we as African-Americans are so disconnected from our true roots, our heritage & our lineage that most can’t see the forest for the trees.

For me, it’s about celebrating and honoring our ancestral history thru actions. I walk on the shoulders of the ancients. And we’ve become so disconnected from our African roots that we give credit to others (who came long after) for “creating” that of which was our natural culture to begin with. We should embrace our history and be proud of our heritage! #FactsOverFashionStatements #RealityCrushesPerception #3rdEyeClarity


Lord Jamar snapped back:

So now n—as wanna flip it & bounce it & act like they was doin some AFRICAN sh–t…yeah ok! GTFOH If that’s what u was doin @omarepps then u should have verbally stated that when they made u stand up & model for them. Ya’ll ain’t NEVER talkin bout AFRICA any other time now that a conscious artist calls u out u wanna fall back on the MOTHER LAND. Fashion makes a STATEMENT, this is why is called a FASHION STATEMENT. ..duh. What STATEMENT are we making in skirts? What may have been CULTURALLY ACCEPTABLE thousands of years ago is no longer the case. TODAY the CULTURAL ARCHETYPE is that skirts & anything resembling them are for women. PERIOD! I am well informed Mr. @omarepps let’s not even play these games. Dude tried to act like he was taking some intellectual high road. SmhI & all people with intelligence reject ur explanation @omarepps When we wear close we are often trying to SEDUCE someone, we want them to be attracted to us by what we have on…who u trying to attract?

Meanwhile the skirt tracking comes across as bitchassness also in my opinion. He has too much free time.
