Many theories concluded that Ghost’s son Tariq could be the killer as he hated his father. And then a few weeks ago, some LEAKED clips of the show indeed revealed Tariq to be the shooter. The LEAKED video was shortly taken down, however, 19-year-old Michael Rainey Jr. has confirmed that since the REVEAL, he has been getting death threats from fans.



Yesterday, the 19-year-old actor shared images of himself with a “WTF” look on his face and wrote in the caption that his inbox is filled with death threats.

It’s pretty clear that the show is loved by people but the character James ‘Ghost’ St. Patrick is loved even more than the show. But do you think fans are taking it way too seriously?
