RIP Chadwick Boseman - 'Black Panther' Star Dead At 43 After 4-Year Battle With Colon Cancer

Man, I don't wanna just hit the cliche: "2020 gets worse" here, or whatever, but I don't know what else to say at this point. 

This is just a completely devastating and shocking loss. I don't think anybody knew he was sick (let alone for the past FOUR years, throughout the most successful and prosperous time of his career) but it just speaks to who he was that he kept his sickness hidden and went on to star in some of the most successful movies of all time, becoming a global icon in the process....

This a little like Kobe Bryant's tragic passing to me right now, in that it just doesn't feel real. For the first few moments I saw RIP tweets hit my timeline, I immediately hoped with everything in me that it was fake, or somehow a stupid hoax, but unfortunately, it wasn't, and this is very real. I think I speak for most if not all of us when I say the world lost a hero in more ways than one tonight, and I'm sending peace and love to his friends and family.

RIP Chadwick Boseman
