Michael B. Jordan Releases Emotional Statement On Chadwick Boseman's Death

"I think that he not only played a superhero, but the way he handled his life and managing cancer with such humility and grace and dignity lets all know that he truly was a superhero", Oprah said during the TV event which was hosted by Robin Roberts. You showed me how to be better, honor goal, and create legacy.

Residents of Anderson, South Carolina have set up a Change.org petition to salute the local hero, who lost his battle with colon cancer on Friday (August 28), aged 43. "Now looking back, all the more I've realised just what an great, incredibly graceful, human being he was", he shared. But the detail that hurts the most is that I now recognize how a lot of a legend and hero YOU are. I've been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug...everything. You are my large brother, but I never thoroughly bought a opportunity to convey to you, or to certainly give you your flowers though you have been here. The petition also comes at a time when many statues of Confederate leaders around the country are being protested due to their racist histories. "Everything you've given the world. the legends and heroes that you've shown us we are. will live on forever", he added. "Is this your king!?". Yes. he.is! Rest In Electric power Brother. Boseman was born and raised in Anderson, South Carolina, and an online petition was quickly launched after his death was announced, calling on the city to move the Anderson Confederate Monument to a museum and replace it with a statue of Boseman.

Another petition, which has been signed by 25,000 people, said: "Mr Boseman is without question an American treasure and his accolades go on and on".

Boseman's T'Challa character was first introduced to the blockbuster Marvel movies in 2016′s Captain America: Civil War and his Wakanda Forever salute reverberated around the world after the release of Black Panther two years ago.

Jordan mentioned he's heading to skip Boseman's "honesty", "generosity", "perception of humor" and "incredible presents".

Jordan ended his tribute with the famous line said by his character Killmonger in Black Panther.
