Rest in power, Michael Kenneth Williams. What an amazing talent he brought to the industry. It was an honor to watch him in “When They See Us.” God only calls the best home. My sincere condolences to the family.

Wow, this is sad! He was such a good actor and person. Underrated, but loved his craft and community. Prayer lifted for his family and all who knew him.

Excellent actor. Wow! Starting with “The Wire,” I have watched this brother do his thing in many roles and films, including “Super Fly,” “Boardwalk Empire” and others. He and his talents will be greatly missed. Rest in heaven, my brother.
