The fans of "Insecure" have spoken, and they want Lawrence back. The Lawrence Hive are fans of the character Lawrence (Jay Ellis) on the show "Insecure." Lawrence grew a strong following on season one of "Insecure" after he was cheated on by his girlfriend and main character Issa (Issa Rae). The Lawrence Hive is relentless after Ellis confirmed he wouldn’t be returning for season three. The hive created a petition to get him back on the show. Do you want Lawrence back on Insecure?

The Lawrence Hive created a petition to bring him back on the show. They are requesting 10,000 signatures and intend on reaching out to HBO requesting he rejoins the cast. According to the petition, Lawrence was a complex character TV is unfamiliar with. 

Lawrence was something new for TV. He's a strong black man who also isn't afraid to be emotionally vulnerable. (And uh, it also doesn't hurt that he's pretty hot too…) Over the past two seasons, Jay Ellis has portrayed the conflicted and realistic ways Lawrence has dealt with difficult and rarely explored issues for men such as infidelity, male friendship, depression, and toxic masculinity.

Show creator Issa Rae was stunned and retweeted the petition. 

But some "Insecure" fans think the idea of a petition is unnecessary and frankly ridiculous.
