‘Black Panther’ fans are growing very concerned for the star of the film, Chadwick Boseman after an Instagram video went viral showing the actor’s drastic weight loss.
Boseman posted a video to social media, to promote his partnership with ‘Operation 42’ a wonderful initiative to help serve African-American communities during the pandemic.
But, while speaking about this organization, many had a hard time looking past how thin the actor looks in the video.
Fans of Boseman pointed out the gaunt look in his face and how shocking his transformation appears.
Chadwick’s video had a very important message, and he captioned it, “I am hearing stories of desperation from people all over the country, and we know our communities are suffering the most and urgently need help. Celebrating #JackieRobinsonDay with the launch of Thomas Tull’s #Operation42, a donation of 4.2 million dollars in personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals that service the African American communities who have been hit the hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
He added, “Thank you, Jackie, for refusing to accept the world as it is, for showing us that we can make a difference.”
But, fans couldn’t help themselves commenting on the way he now looks…
Immediately after Boseman posted the video on Instagram, his fans flooded the comments with messages voicing their concerns for the actor’s appearance.
“Anybody in shock by how he look? ? No shade,” one person said. Another added, “Dude, I’m all in for this, but please reassure your fan base about your health ’cause even I am starting to be kinda worried.”
One fan said simply, “I didn’t recognize him at first ?I’m not liking this weight loss bro.”
We should note, it is very possible Chadwick is preparing for a new movie role where the part calls for a very thin person.
Several fans of the ‘Black Panther’ star thinks he should have just addressed the situation at the beginning of the video.
“While your words are so impactful, your dramatic weight loss is taking precedence because it is not what we are used to. If you would have addressed it, in the beginning, it would have made your words shine more. We love you and hope you are well,’ one fan wrote.
But, a few people are upset anyone would deflect from the important message in the video by commenting on his weight.
“The sheer disrespect in these comments is unbelievable. What’s wrong with y’all? Not only are you all deflecting from what this video is about but y’all are rude as hell,” a person wrote.
