The tweet was that of a black and white photo of Boseman as well as a message confirming his death and giving some details about the situation.
The message noted his 4-year battle with colon cancer, shocking the world. He suffered in private. The tween also stated that it was the most significant honor of his career to star in the record-breaking film Black Panther. The previous record was held by Barak Obama when he posted a quote from Nelson Mandela in a photo.
We send our condolences to his family. We feel the loss of such a great man. Many of us rewatched Black Panther to feel his presence and honor his work. Rest in peace, Chadwick Boseman.
